Filament keeps getting stuck in the extruer pulley

Hello guys, I own my beloved Mini+ for more than 3 months now. Lately filament gets stuck in the pulley and then either there's a clicking sound or it just wont turn. It happened about 3 times when I tried  unsuccessfully unloading filament and once in the middle of a print, in which the extruder started making a very strong clicking sound and stopped extruding filament. I had to stop the print obviously. Every time it happens I have to open the extruder and clean the pulley from grinded filament. It happened with different brands of PLA.

Why does it keep happening?

Thanks

Among other things, the nozzle may be clogged: https://help.prusa3d.com/en/article/clogged-nozzle-hotend-mini-mini_112011
