Kick it up a Notch with Spicy Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple salsa is a quintessential summer delight, a dish that combines the freshness of fruits with the invigorating flavors of hot spices. In our experience, nothing tops tajin – a Mexican spice blend with chili peppers, salt, and dehydrated lime juice – to add a tangy kick.


-2 cups finely diced Chestnut Hill Farms Perfect Pineapple

-1 diced red onion

-1 chopped jalapeño pepper


-Lime zest

-2 tablespoons tajin

To make your spicy pineapple salsa, combine all ingredients and mix well! Now’s the fun part: taste testing. Take a small bite and adjust the salsa to your liking. If the salsa is too spicy or too sour, add in more pineapple. If the salsa is too sweet, sprinkle on a bit more tajin. This salsa is perfect as a topping for grilled fish, a filler for tacos, or simply served with chips.
