Grilled Pineapple and Chorizo

This is more of an idea than a recipe. If your lives are anything like ours, you occasionally suffer from a shortage of time and lack of inspiration in the kitchen. Here’s some (super speedy) inspiration.

1 fresh pineapple, peeled and sliced into rounds

2 chorizo sausages (We used chicken chorizo. It was on sale at Whole Foods.)

1. Grill the sausages on a well-oiled grill over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Check to make sure that that they are cooked completely through before removing from the grill. (If the sausages say they are precooked, then you can just toss 'em on a hot grill until they are nice and browned.)

2. Re-spray the grill and cook the pineapple slices over medium-high heat, a few minutes to a side, until grill marks appear. (Warning: the high sugar content of pineapple increases the risk of burning, so keep an eye on it.)

3. Slice the pineapple into bite-size pieces.

4. Slice chorizo and toss with grilled pineapple.
