Preparation

Step 1

TO GRILL PINEAPPLE:
Cut wedges, stick on skewers, and grill over low-heat either on a grill, grill pan, or even a skillet. Cut into slices.

Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and Cajun spice if you want some heat. Spray grill with cooking spray and grill on both sides until done, brushing with barbecue sauce after it's finished. Set aside and slice into very thin slices.

Warm pan over med-heat and put butter in the pan enough to coat. Slightly warm and toast tortillas on both sides, then remove from griddle and set aside.

TO ASSEMBLE:
Sprinkle 4 browned tortillas with grated Monterey Jack and arrange chicken slices and pineapple slices evenly over the surface. If desired, add sliced jalapenos and cilantro here. Drizzle extra barbecue sauce over the top. Add second browned tortilla on top of each one. {You'll have 4 complete quesadillas at this point}

Add quesadillas back to skillet to warm, until cheese is melted. Cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges. Serve with sour cream, pico de gallo and lime wedges.
