  • 8 (10-inch) bamboo skewers
  • 8 oz (250 g) pasteurized prepared sharp Cheddar cheese product loaf, cut in 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 can (127 mL) Old El Paso™ mild chopped green chilies
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 1/4 lb (625 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 package Old El Paso™ chicken taco seasoning mix
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, cut into 1 1/4-inch pieces (12 pieces)
  • 4 green onions, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Soak skewers in water 10 minutes; drain.
  • 2
    In medium microwavable bowl, mix cheese, chilies and Sriracha sauce. Microwave uncovered on High 4 to 5 minutes, stirring once after 2 minutes, until cheese melts and mixture is smooth; keep warm.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix chicken, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and the taco seasoning mix. On each of 4 skewers, thread chicken, leaving 1/4-inch space between each piece.
  • 4
    On remaining 4 skewers, thread alternating bell peppers and green onions. Brush vegetables generously on both sides with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil; sprinkle with salt.
  • 5
    Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook vegetables 6 to 8 minutes and chicken 10 to 14 minutes, turning kabobs 1 or 2 times, until grill marks form, vegetables are tender and chicken is no longer pink in centre. Serve with cheese sauce.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Craving carbs too? Stuff chicken and veggies into warmed soft tortillas, or serve over rice.
  • Tip 2
    If vegetables kabobs are finished before chicken kabobs, keep warm by covering tightly with foil or placing in a 200°F oven. Cheese sauce can also be kept warm, covered with foil, in the same oven.
  • Tip 3
    Metal skewers can be used instead of bamboo. Bamboo skewers are soaked in water so they're less likely to burn; there is no need to soak if you use metal skewers.
