I just love that the warm weather is here. It means that a majority of our meals will be cooked on the BBQ, which also means the kitchen stays cool and the cooking mess is outside. BBQ season also means we get to eat fresh and healthy meals and these Mexican BBQ Skewers are just that.
Lean meat, fresh vegetables, Mexican flavours and the option to enjoy it all in a tortilla means that this dinner or lunch keeps everyone happy.
The beauty of these skewers is that you can do most of the preparation early in the morning and come lunch or dinner, you just have to cook them on BBQ. You’ll be enjoying them in 15 minutes.
1 Mission Foods Burrito Kit alternatively Mission have a large range of tortillas varieties to try.
500gm Rump Steak, fat removed and cut into strips
2 Chicken Breasts cut into strips
½ Red Capsicum, cut into chunky pieced
1 Zucchini, cut into 2cm pieces
1 Onion, cut into 8ths
4 Mushrooms, cut in half
Bamboo Skewers, soaked in water
Mission Foods Mild Salsa – this comes with the burrito kit or you can buy it in the jar.
LETS PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
- Thread the beef strips, chicken strips and vegetables onto the skewers. You will make approximately 6 beef, 6 chicken and 4 vegetable.
- Place onto a large tray, drizzle over some olive oil and then sprinkle over the Mission burrito seasoning supplied in the kit. Place in the fridge until you are ready to cook them.
- Preheat the BBQ making sure it is hot and then place the skewers onto the grill side. Cook for 5 minutes on the first side and then turn and cook for a further 5-8 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the BBQ and place on a serving plate.
- Heat the tortillas in the microwave and place on the table with the baby spinach, avocado and salsa.
Encourage your family or guests to make a tortilla with the meat and vegetables by simply sliding the meat and vegetables off the skewer and onto the wrap. Top with extras if they like and wrap up.
