Skillet Pork and Warm Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple is a sweet foil for the fiery jalapeño. Either fresh or canned pineapple chunks work well in this recipe. If you like a spicier kick, remember that smaller jalapeño peppers are typically hotter than the larger ones. To complete the meal, serve with rice and steamed snow peas.
