Yum! My hubby loves Chorizo and these were a huge hit! I love that you can mix up different veggies according to taste - i served with a quinoa dish and it was perfect.
I found the cous cous to be extremely bland and so I ended up adding a lot of seasoning at the end. In addition the marinade as written did not make nearly enough to go on all the kabobs. Most of them just ended up being plain, which was ok because I like shrimp, veggies and sausage. But I really wanted to marinate them to make them extra special. Maybe I didn't make the marinade right or something? I don't know. But I won't be making these again.
We really liked this recipe. I changed up the veggies a little to use what I had on hand. Did not care for the couscous as it was very bland. Next time I will try it with rice.
Some of the best kabobs I've had. The lime marinade sends these over the top.
I had a different sausage, chicken but not chorizo or chipotle so I added a chipotle pepper to the marinade. Just did the sausage and veggies, (added mushrooms) didn't make the couscous. Used the grill basket over charcoal instead of kabobs.
yum! we used the Sweet Italian (couldn't find the Chipotle Chorizo in our store) and it was delicious!
The next day we used leftovers in an egg scramble.
Superb!!! This is a great bbq idea-loved it!
I liked the thick marinade that went on these kabobs. They have a good contrast of flavors with the spicy marinade and sausages, and the sweet peppers and pineapple. This was enjoyed by all.
