New Kebab Recipe
I love Everyday Food magazine. There's always a gazillion recipes in each issue that I want to try, so last night I made a new kebab recipe: Garlic-Chipotle Beef Kebabs. It's a very inexpensive recipe since you use ground beef instead of steak.
I have always been intrigued by chipotles in adobo sauce, but never used them until last night. They smell like a BBQ, but they have one heck of a bite! After taking a small taste and grabbing for some water, I decreased the amount in the recipe. This turned out to be a good thing--the kebabs still had a pretty good heat to them. Garlic, onions, and cilantro are added to the ground beef, too.
Try this recipe if you're looking for a new grilling recipe; you could certainly make them indoors, too. Bud and I made wraps out of these with grilled flatbread, cheese, sour cream, and chopped tomatoes. Yum! The magazine suggests serving with a tomato salad. The hot and humid weather lately keeps Bud and I grilling and eating much less for dinner; last night this was all we had and it was plenty! I suspect a cold beer or a margarita would also make this awesome.
