12 Reasons to Get Grilling Before Summer’s Over

  1. Grilled Chimichurri Chicken

    Take your grilled chicken to another level when you slather on the chimichurri sauce! The herbs, garlic and peppers form the foundation of flavor of this recipe, which uses olive oil as its base. Double your chimichurri pleasure by pairing the chicken with pasta, or toss a salad with some of the sauce. ¡Delicioso!

  2. Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp Kebabs

    It doesn’t get much simpler than enjoying shrimp on a stick. No fuss, no muss. Lined up on a skewer, you’ll go through these bad boys faster than the time it takes to cook them. And they’re almost (we said almost) as much fun to hand out to your family and guests. Just remember to set aside some for yourself.

  3. Grilled Chicken Salad With Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

    Here’s a light, healthy, protein-packed meal that requires little more than firing up the grill. Add a touch of home to your mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumber and shredded carrots with a homemade vinaigrette. On a warm summer evening, it’s the perfect meal. The only thing missing is a tall glass of lemonade.

  4. Grilled Pork Tenderloin With Pickled Jalapeño Salsa

    The premier cut of pork, the tenderloin needs to be treated carefully to maintain its juiciness. Rest assured, this tenderloin will be flavorful, juicy and delicious. The pickled jalapeño salsa kicks up the heat a notch and adds layers of flavor. In an hour, you’ll have dinner for four.

  5. Grilled Chile Limón Corn

    Corn is one of the most beloved foods of Mexico. Elote is eaten right off the cob on a stick or served in a cup. It’s usually seasoned with a variety of condiments, like chili power, lemon juice, cheese, and mayonnaise. Here’s how you can make your own version.

  6. Barbecue Chicken Pinchos With Green Pesto

    Instead of a roast chicken dinner, try these Italian-inspired chicken kebabs with our take on pesto. Line up juicy chunks of chicken, alternating with sweet yet slightly tart cherry tomatoes, then dress them up with a rich pesto sauce brimming with the essence of basil, parsley and coriander.

  7. Carne Asada With Annatto Sauce and Onion Cilantro Salsa

    Carne asada is a typical skirt steak dish in Latin America known for its robust, smoky flavor. A twist on this recipe is the incorporation of annatto and an onion cilantro salsa, which takes a delicious beef dish and elevates it.

  8. Grilled Shrimp Tacos With Zesty Cream Sauce

    Grilling and tacos… what more could you want in a summer meal? The smoky flavor of the grilled shrimp pairs wonderfully with the spicy and creamy sauce in this recipe. Put it all on a tortilla and top with avocado, and your backyard or pool party guests will be clamoring for more. You’ll be the life of the party – just make sure you make enough for seconds, or even thirds!

  9. Grilled Churrasco With Green and Red Chimichurri

    Enjoy the popular churrasco skirt steak right at home with two variations of chimichurri sauce: the green one is a classic, while the red counterpart a bit spicier and smokier. Try this dish before summer ends!

  10. Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges With a Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

    Sweet, smoky and spicy…. that’s what this appetizer is all about. The meaty sweet potato holds up well under the heat of the grill, and the crumbled bacon bits (optional, in case you want to keep it vegetarian) add some crunch and salt to the dish.

  11. Venezuelan-Style Barbecue

    Put a twist on your cookout with a Venezuelan-style barbecue. The secret is in the avocado-based guasacaca sauce, which you can spread over the meat or even blend into your side salad.

  12. Firecracker Chicken and Chayote Skewers

    In these firecracker chicken and chayote skewers, the mild chayote squash pairs deliciously with meat, absorbing the flavors. Prepare the marinade and let the chicken soak in it until you fire up the grill on a late summer evening. Then the fireworks will be in your mouth!
