Cherry Pineapple Jello

Otherwise called the easiest side dish you'll ever bring to a BBQ...which is my kind of cooking.

This jello recipe has been a tradition since I can remember.  Every 4th of July my sisters and I would look forward to my mom making this tasty side dish and it would seriously be devoured in minutes. If you love cherry pie filling (who doesn't?!) then this is just for you...because you know you get to lick the cherry can when you're finished. That's always when my husband walks by and just shakes his head at me.  Hey there are some things that just can't be helped. I know you might be thinking, "Jello dishes are only served during potlucks in a church basement or by your elderly neighbor" (which is probably true) but sometimes you just can't go wrong with an American tradition. 
You'll Need:
1 large package of Cherry Jello
1 can of crushed pineapple
1 large can of cherry pie filling

Add 2 cups of boiling water to the jello mix
Add the crushed pineapple and the cherry pie filling
Mix together and pour into mold

Place in refrigerator overnight to set
