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.

  4. I was surprised at just how much heat the chipotles packed! I am going to sneak them in chili this fall.

    And C-Joy, I will make you anything you want to eat--you know you are one of my guinea pigs!

  5. You can also find the dried chipotles and chipotle powder. It is great in chili!
