Quick Ham and Pineapple over Couscous


You know I love a 15 minute meal.  This one may come in at even less time than that.

I’ve had the idea for this for a while, but I wasn’t confident about how the flavors would taste together.  But it was great!  Especially considering the super quick prep time.

This dish does have jalepeno, but if you’re careful to remove the seeds, they aren’t spicy.  It gives a nice addition to the flavors.

Here’s what you’ll need:  

Quick Ham and Pineapple over Couscous

Serves: 5-6 servings

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ¼ of a large red onion, chopped
  • 2-3 Tbs. vegetable oil

  • 1 jalepeno, seeds removed, diced
  • 1 lb. ham cubes
  • 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained and juice reserved
  • salt and pepper to taste
