Chili Cinnamon Grilled Pineapple

I made this pineapple side dish to go with a spice roasted pork tenderloin. I wanted to replicate a bit of the spice in the pork but also tone it down somewhat so I added a bit of kick to it...

Chili Cinnamon Grilled Pineapple
Ingredients
1 Pint/Pound of pineapple, cubed or sliced
1-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 - 1 teaspoon chili powder

Directions
- Grill pineapple in a grill basket, turning occasionally (If you use pineapple slices you can grill with direct heat but cubes might go through the grates!)
- mix together spices
- Once pineapple is heated through take off grill and sprinke with spice mixture
- allow to set in a bowl to cool off a little

** I used the juice from the pineapple sitting to mix in to a side of brown rice I made to go along with the meal. The leftovers made a fantastic lunch the next day - just chopped up the pork and made a bed of rice then pineapple then pork to take to work! **
