Kebabs? Kebobs? These suckers are bursting with sweet and spicy flavors, regardless how you pronounce it.
My dearest of friends have brought it to my attention that I’ve been MIA from this blog for a bit. Apparently they enjoy reading my ramblings online. I’ve been busy….with like…..vacations and stuff….and probably other things, too. So this ones for you.
With our summers being short-lived, I try to maximize the use of our BBQ. One of the things we make most often are kebabs, loaded with our favorite veggies and basted with a sweet (and often, super garlicky) glaze. I’m a huge fan of the sweet-and-spicy combination, so I switched things up by making a sweet and spicy marinade for my chicken using jalapenos from my own garden. Oh, and I added lots of dark rum. You know, for good measure.
I’m a pretty big fan of all the ingredients in this recipe, and together, they make the perfect fixin’s for a summer backyard BBQ. The boozy base, mixed with sweet, brown sugar, and a hit of heat from the jalapenos make a lip-smackin’, sweet and spicy marinade. Not to mention, it all comes together in a snap. Once the chicken is sufficiently marinated, go to town skewering your meat and veggies in whatever fashion you wish. I prefer a systematic order: green pepper, red pepper, onion, pineapple, chicken, repeat. Once your done skewering, you can commence BBQing. Enjoy.
