20 Minute Meals: Chili-Rubbed Pork & Pineapple Kabobs

Chili-Rubbed Pork & Pineapple Kebabs #festfoods Looking for a summer party food option? How about kabobs? We've got an option that features cubed pork chops rubbed with chili powder and fresh pineapple chunks, which makes for an amazing combination.  They are skewered and grilled until the meat is tender-on-the-inside and crispy-on-the-outside and the pineapple has that perfect char.
