Spiced Pineapple Dessert Taco

  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 25 min
  • Serves: 8

Ingredients

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

Directions

  • Step 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.

  • Step 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.

  • Step 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.
