We this weekend have really enjoyed getting outside and BBQing for all the family thanks to B & Q. I think it really is such a sociable way to cook, the weather hasn’t been overly warm but it has been dry and for us that is plenty good enough.
Already Saturday I shared with you a couple of quick recipes for our BBQ Challenge, some sweet Hotdogs and a delicious Banana dessert, go check them out.
Today though I am here with our Sunday dinner that I cooked for some family over visiting, if you have ever been to my blog before you will know I am a HUGE Mexican food fan, so when I was asked to take part in the challenge I knew I wanted to attempt Mexican on the BBQ.
As I was cooking for many people and let’s be honest when BBQing enjoying time with friends and family is important I went for an easy way to cook the Mexican using pre packed seasoning and adding my own twist.
Chicken & Steak Fajita Skewers
Mexican Lime/Garlic Rice
Chips N Dips
The great thing about all these dishes is they could easily be prepared early in the morning and left in the fridge ready to be just cooked and served all in under 15 minutes.
It is the same recipe for both Fajita’s, we served them with Flour Tortillas (which can be warmed on the BBQ in foil or the Microwave) and the trimmings.
The Fajita’s are definitely milder cooked on the BBQ than the traditional way, which in fact worked very well when having guests as they suited more palettes, but if cooking for the Hubby and I again I shall actually baste some of the marinade as we cook for a little more heat.
The Chicken Quesadillas were definitely the favourite from all around the table and we all agreed that cooked on the BBQ they were tastier than cooked the traditional way. They are so quick and easy that they would be great at lunchtime too with some salad/rice.
I also want to try cooking them with leftover pulled pork, they are so versatile and cost very little to make.
I think the empty dishes other than a tiny amount of salad shows what everyone thought of Mexican on the BBQ, it was a HUGE hit and shall definitely be cooked again.
I shall share my Mexican Rice recipe at a later date as I have just realised I have never shared before.
Don’t forget I shall be back still with 2 more recipes this week that you can cook on the BBQ, one of them being a breakfast.
Have you ever cooked Mexican on the BBQ ? I would love to hear or see your recipes.
