Summer time is all about grilling and kebabs for me! Lately, that has been extremely hard with the torrential downfall of rain here in Texas. Some roads are flooded out completely causing even more traffic. That in which delays the husband from getting home for just a tad of time before the sun goes down. Although, that doesn’t mean you still can’t have those chipotle chicken, bacon, and blue kebabs indoors.
It’s still summer time after all! You have to have those fun summer time vibes flowing. Did I ever mention how I love spicy food? So I am going to fully admit how much I love spicy food. It’s this tad of cajun blood I have that I LOVE anything fiery hot. I am not so big on habanero but I do love burn butt off hot food! These are not that spicy on my scale of 1 to 10 they are at about a 3 or 5. I bake the chicken in El Yucateco Chipotle Hot Sauce. Turns out just the perfect heat to mesh with the bacon and carrots that are sauteed in the bacon grease. You also add pineapple for extra flavor!
El Yucateco Chipotle Hot Sauce Made from naturally smoked chipotle peppers. This sauce has a sweet smoky flavor. The rich consistency and flavor make it our go to BBQ sauce for cooking or grilling. This sauce pairs with just about any type of meat or seafood. It adds a nice sweet smokey heat to chili and wings, and your friends will be wow’ed when add this sauce to melted chocolate for a new twist on a traditional chocolate fondue! No artificial coloring added. The are sauces are available at Lowes Foods. El Yucateco has other sauces available like El Yucateco Green Hot Sauce and El Yucateco Red Hot Sauce. I’d love to hear how you would use these sauces in your summer grilling! Leave me a comment below telling me what you would use them for.
