Casa M Chicken Kabobs
Kabobs are such a great way to grill all manner of meats and vegetables. They are truly cross cultural and seasoning vary from ethnicity to ethnicity. These skewers are the Casa M incarnation of kabobs using various Casa M Spice Co® products to show off how simple it can be to really show off the flavor of meats on the grill as well as how simple it can be to host a BBQ with great, bold flavors with almost no prep needed.
We can't emphasize enough how important it is to get good skewers to start with. We recommend thick, flat ones that allow you to skewer whatever you want and not have to worry about rotation (when you flip them) or them being made of a combustible material over an open flame. The vegetables listed in the recipe are ones that cook relatively quickly next to the meat and on the same skewer, but if you want to include vegetables that have a longer cook time, you can absolutely do that by isolating the protein on one skewer and the vegetables in question on another that can cook longer (at a lower temp, presumably). There really are few rules with this recipe, just get creative and enjoy!

LET’S GET COOKING
Put the meat into a mixing bowl and add the Casa M Spice Co® seasonings and mix well. Cover the bowl with food film and put into the refrigerator for 4 hours or so to season.
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, about 400°F.
While the grill is preheating, build the skewers with meat alternating with vegetables.
This should build 8 meaty skewers.
Grill the skewers, flipping as needed, until the internal temp of the meat reads 140°F
Pull the skewers from the grill and let them cool enoguh to handle, then remove the contents from each skewer onto a plate and serve.
