Remove from the heat and add the lime juice, and white pepper. Let cool.

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Grilled Pineapple Salsa:

Pickled Green Chiles:

  1. Place vinegar, salt and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Continue boiling until the sugar and salt are completely dissolved. Place the chiles in a glass jar or nonreactive bowl and pour the hot vinegar mixture over.
