 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    Pineapple, peeled & cored
      1/4   c            Red bell pepper, diced
    2       ts           Chipotle chile puree
    2       tb           Orange juice
    1       tb           Lime juice
    1       tb           Cilantro, minced
    2       ts           Brown sugar
 
   Cut pineapple into slices no more than 1/4 thick.
   Cut each slice in half. Dry saute the pineapple slices
   in a skillet for 8 minutes or so. You want it to be
   caremalized & golden brown, be careful not to use too
   high a heat. When cooked, dice & transfer to a mixing
   bowl.
   
   Stir in the remaining ingredients & taste to see if
   you need more lime juice or chile puree.
   
   This salsa rates a cool 4 out of 10.  As a variation,
   replace the pineapple with peaches & cook using the
   same directions.
