Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500 mL) chopped fresh pineapple
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) barbecue sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) granulated sugar, divided
  • 8 taco shells
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) grated semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) vanilla Greek yogourt
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) toasted unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) finely grated lime zest

Method

  1. Crumple sheets of foil (8 x 11 in./20 x 28 cm) into an oval and fit inside each taco to keep taco from curling.
  2. Stir pineapple with barbecue sauce, lime juice and 1 tsp (5 mL) sugar; set aside. Stir butter with remaining sugar and cinnamon and brush mixture on the inside of each taco shell. Bake tacos, with foil balls in the centre, at 400°F (200°C) for 8 to 10 min.
  3. Discard foil, and fill each taco with some of the chocolate, pineapple, yogourt, coconut and lime zest. Serve immediately.
Tip:
To toast coconut, bake it on a baking sheet alongside the taco shells.
