Remember the other day when I said that it was really rainy and the summer was pretty mild here in North Carolina? Well the storms are gone and the heat and humidity are in full swing. My hair and the humidity do not mix here and it is a hot mess! But on the flip side, I am able to BBQ again. And these Chipotle Chicken Kabobs turned out amazing!

2 Chipotle Chicken Kabobs on a white plate.The chipotle spice gave this the right amount of kick and awesome flavor. Then dipped in the Avocado cream sauce was so amazing. I love fresh avocados so this cream sauce was perfect! Just another grilling hit to add to the list! 🙂

  1. 10! If I could give this a 100 I would! Since it’s winter in Minnesota I tweaked the dish to be a little more hearty and a full meal. I used half a rotisserie chicken I pieced earlier in the week and marinated that. Made some sticky rice, sautéed the chicken with two diced green peppers, a red pepper, an onion, and about a tbsp of minced garlic. Served in a bowl over the rice with a dollop of the avocado cream sauce and I died. Died of happiness. Then came back to life to eat more! I love you recipe author. Just know that!
