Sweet and Spicy Chicken Kabobs!
Summer is here Ya’ll! Living in the South means I can pretty much grill year round, which I love because it is less clean up and nothing really beats a meal grilled. These Sweet and Spicy Chicken Kabobs have become an instant family favorite in our home! I love the way veggies get that char and become a little crispy around the edges… so yum! If you like a little kick to your food, this recipe is for you!
I used the marinade for our chicken, but it is pretty darn awesome on steak as well. Hubby uses it as a dipping sauce for his french fries… It is THAT good! It has a major kick, but it is not an overwhelming spicy.
For this fun summer recipe, you will only need a few ingredients and clean up is a breeze! That is the one thing I LOVE about grilling is that there are less dishes. I like to use a baking sheet covered in foil to carry the food out to the grill, when the food is almost done cooking, I take the baking sheet in and change out the foil to carry it all back.
For this recipe I used the El Yucateco Red Habanero Hot Sauce, but you can substitute with theEl Yucateco Chipotle Hot Sauce, which I found at my local Lowes Foods. If you are craving a little more heat, you can always go bold with the El Yucateco Green Habanero Hot Sauce that packs a little bit more of a punch than the Red Hot Sauce! I absolutely love the El Yucateco Chipotle Hot Sauce and use it straight from the bottle on my steak.

Summer grilling is not just for get togethers in our home, we try to grill outside as often as possible in the summer. Instead of being stuck behind a stove I can go outside and play with the kiddos while our dinner is cooking. And, lets face it, there is nothing better than chasing a few Fire Flies after eating dinner outside.
