Pineapple Salsa

This is a Pampered Chef recipe tweaked by a friend. Enjoy!


1 Large Pineapple
1 Medium Red Onion
1 Cucumber peeled and seeded
1 Bunch cilantro
2 jalapeno peppers
2 Tbs lime juice

1. Chop everything up into small bite size pieces so you get a good mix of the salsa when you eat it.

2. Pour over the lime juice and mix it all up.

Serving options:
Would be great with Teriyaki chicken and rice! You could also try cooking your chicken in this for some great flavor!


We had left over shredded chicken so I created some delicious enchiladas tonight!

1. Cook your chicken up in your favorite salsa. Turns out best if it is cooked covered so the moisture stays in.
2. Shred or cut your chicken how you like it in your enchiladas.


Campbell’s Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup
1 can of Olives (sliced and divided)
2 Roma tomatoes (diced and divided)
6 tortillas
Sour Cream

1. Cut your olives and tomatoes. Make sure to leave enough olive slices to go on top as well as one of the tomatoes.

2. Mix your chicken, soup, olives and tomato

3. Scoop into your tortillas and roll.

4. Spread a thin layer of sour cream over the top. Cover with cheese and garnish with remaining olives and tomato

5. Bake at 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes (or however long it takes it to warm through). I left mine uncovered because I like it a little crisper. It would be fine to cook it with foil on it if you don’t like the crunch.

Shredded Chicken Taco (optional salad)

This was super easy and turned out delicious!

1. Cook your chicken in your favorite salsa. You can either cook it in your crockpot  or fry it up in your pan. I’m not sure on the cooking time. You’ll have to play with it depending on the method. I ended up doing half and half….  Anyway, cook your chicken in a covered method so it will stay moist.

2. Since we aren’t sure on the cooking time make sure that you measure the temperature and that it reaches the appropriate heat inside.

3. Shred your chicken!

4. Put it all together and enjoy.

We had chips and tortillas available so we ate it a little differently. I turned mine into a Taco Salad with chips on the bottom, greens, peppers, tomatoes, the shredded chicken, cheese, and ranch dressing. Phil ate his taco style (pretty much the same toppings except the chips and inside a tortilla). They were both excellent.
