Chow is a very popular ‘snack’ in Trinidad that’s made using a fruit (mango, orange etc), hot pepper, garlic, chadon beni, salt and black pepper. Some other common ingredients include lime/lemon juice, ketchup and sugar.

Here is my Pineapple Chow ingredients:


  • 1 pineapple, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 12 chadon beni leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 hot pepper (can be adjusted), finely chopped
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, grated
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients above and mix well. You can set it aside for a few hours to marinate or you can eat it immediately.

Some common fruits used to make chow in Trinidad include mango, pommecythere, plum, strawberries, apples. oranges.
