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'm not a fan of sausage, in general, (though I did eat a few pieces and enjoyed the grilled flavor) so I'm going to rely primarily on Mr. LTH for this review. He didn't even finish his meal and he's a big fan of sausage. He deemed this "too spicy". I didn't find it too spicy at all, but didn't like it enough to save the leftovers for lunch. I skipped the couscous and subbed brown rice instead and had to use the Jalapeno Al Fresco as they grocery store didn't have the Chipotle version. I did really enjoy the marinated veggies! This is a nice recipe (and much more developed than so many corporately sponsored recipes), it just wasn't our cup o' tea...
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.
