Recipe Notes

  • You will need six large metal skewers for this recipe. If using bamboo or wooden skewers, soak them in cool water for half an hour before using.
  • If you don't have ¡Ya Oaxaca! Mole Rojo, use your favorite mole sauce.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To make the marinade, in a blender mix together 1/2 cup ¡Ya Oaxaca! Mole Rojo sauce, onion, garlic, black pepper, sea salt and olive oil. Blend until smooth. Stir in the herbs.
  2. To make the kabobs, thread the skewers to make the alambres by threading with a piece of yellow bell pepper, a mushroom, a red onion wedge, a piece of beef sirloin tip, summer squash or zucchini slices, a tomato half, another piece of beef, followed by onion, mushroom, red bell pepper chunk, beef, squash and finishing with a large fresh chile habanero. Brush the skewers with the marinade to evenly coat them. Marinate them for 30 minutes or longer.
  3. Grill the kabobs on a hot grill with fruit wood chips or mesquite on the coals, turning as needed. Grill the onions turning as needed. Serve with the grilled onions and spoon hot Rojo sauce over the kabobs. Serve with corn tortillas and lime wedges.
