Spicy Pineapple Fried Rice

My cousin Rose likes to make this for her family and I finally got around to testing this out. I was surprised that this fried rice did not call for eggs, but taste delicious nonetheless. the crushed red pepper really adds a little kick to the flavor, and the sweetness of the pineapples really go well with saltiness of the soy sauce. It may sound like an odd group to some, but believe me it is a winning combo!
