A Chipotle Pineapple Ham inspired in mom’s Jamón Virginia recipe is our suggestion for upcoming Easter feast. Here in the United States ham is a very common dish for Christmas and for Easter brunch. There are many ways to prepare it. Famous recipes include glazes that go from honey bourbon to brown sugar, a Southern cuisine staple. But the classic is the ham glazed with pineapple slices, cherries and a delectable brown sugar glaze.

My family is from Chihuahua, and being a border state many American traditions have permeated our menu. Glazed ham is one of those dishes added to the family table. Everyone was very happy every time this dish was served as it is sweet and savory. A kid favorite too!

Inspired on those memories and flavor profiles we made a tasty Chipotle Pineapple Ham. Using fresh golden pineapple slices, pineapple juice, smoked chipotle powder, latin spices and turbinado sugar. All combined to make a very sweet and spicy glaze to dress and bake the ham.

This sounds like a perfect Easter setting and the ham looks so nicely done. I’m literally drooling looking at it and saving your recipe to try 🙂

Oh my… this is one GREAT looking ham I must say 🙂 I never tried smoked ham with pineapple or sweet glaze. It must taste delicious! This is something I really want to try. Love that table setting too 😉

What an interesting flavor combination. That spicy kick from chipotle I am sure goes well with the sweetness of the pineapples. Thanks for sharing.
