Reduce heat to medium. Push the meat to one side of the skillet. Add the onions, peppers and diced serrano. Toss and blend. Cover with a lid and cook about 5 minutes.
Reduce heat to simmer. Toss the almonds and parsley in with the onions/peppers. Cover until ready to serve.
In another small to medium skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the pineapple slices and pan sear to a golden brown on each side. Remove and dust with paprika.
Serve with street size flour tortillas, grilled paprika pineapple slices, sour cream or Greek plain yogurt (dust with paprika), lime wedges, hot sauce, and whatever makes you happy! Add salt and pepper to taste.
