Crystal Hot Sauce Shish-Kabobs

My favorite hot sauce is the Crystal brand, it's what I use for everything from Guiltless Buffalo Chicken to scrambled eggs and I could drink the stuff straight up! I felt like grilling out and made some kabobs that are light in calories but big on flavor with the only seasoning being the hot sauce and salt and pepper.

Crystal Hot Sauce Shish-Kabobs
Chicken breasts or tenders cut into bite size pieces, about 1 1/4"
Green bell pepper, cut into pieces
Sweet onion, cut into pieces and separated
Pineapple, fresh or a can of chunks-I used canned slices and they did break up a bit-omit for low carb
Crystal Louisiana's Pure Hot Sauce
  1. If using wooden skewers soak in water for at least 30 minutes-note to self: get metal skewers!
  2. Add chicken pieces to a bowl and pour enough hot sauce to coat it all. Mix well.
  3. Add onions and peppers to another bowl and drizzle hot sauce over them too.
  4. Arrange food on skewers any way you'd like. I added 3 pieces of everything to each skewer.
  5. Salt and pepper both sides of kabobs.
  6. Oil the grill grate-If you'd like to add a spritz of oil to your kabobs go right ahead!
  7. Place skewers on hot grill, cover and cook for about 5 minutes.
  8. Turn kabobs and baste with more hot sauce.
  9. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes more, or until done.
  10. Serve with the bottle of hot sauce on the table:@)
This sauce is good with pork too and 
if you really want something different, sub ham for the chicken above-it's great!
Have a happy day:@)

  1. Why do I never think to do shish ka bobs?????
    xxxooo thanks for the reminder!!!

  2. I will look for this brand. You have introduced me to several things new to me. I had never purchased Rotel before reading it here. Last time I made chili, I bought a can...Wow, it is hot..we like hot so that is good. I ended up putting the rest of the can in a Lock'n'Lock and used it for this and that all week long.

    The shish ka bobs look and sound so yummy, I will be putting the Crystal sauce on my list. xo

    1. Don't hesitate to freeze leftover Rotel if you can't use it up:@)

  3. I am not a hot sauce fan but Joe is certainly. These do look good Lynn.

  4. The only thing I see wrong with this post . . .is that I'm not there as your food taster. Yum!!!

  5. Love the photo - looks good enough to EAT!

  6. yummmmmmmmmm.. that looks soooooooooooo good.

  7. I'm not a hot sauce fan but Mr. Darling Dear is and I'm sure he would love these!
    Your shish ka bobs look great! Thanks for sharing and for visiting Plum Perfect, have a wonderful night!

  8. I love spicy food! Your kabobs look wonderful and would definitely be popular here!

  9. YUM Lynn -- those look amazing - I am thinking your recipe would be fabulous with shrimp too :)


  10. Lynn, you share the best food recipes. I'm putting this on the menu this week.

  11. I wonder if we have this type of hot sauce here? I don't know if I've ever seen it. These kabobs looks delicious.

  12. Thanks for your recommendation for the Crystal Hot Sauce. I'll check for that next time at the grocery. Your kabobs sure look tasty and inspire me to make some.

  13. Crystal is "the" brand of choice in parts of the south including Louisiana. Interesting since Tabasco is also from Louisiana, but I find they are different in their unique ways. Love your kabobs Lynn, but the thing that caught my eye was "light in calories but big on flavor". That's what everything should be. (smile)

  14. We love Crystal's! I'll have to try this out on a kabob.

  15. I don't know if I could handle this, but it does look great - like just enough sauce. Bet it was.

  16. I don't think I've ever seen Crystal's brand,but then my hand automatically reaches for Frank's. Your kabobs look delicious, and even though I've not yet had breakfast, I could go for one now. I'll give Crystal's a try. Thanks.

  17. Those look just fabulous, Lynn. I've never tried Crystal brand but if you recommend it, I'm in!

  18. I never realized there was a major difference between the hot sauces. I'll have to pay more attention. Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  19. Count me in as another one who needs to pay more attention to differences between hot sauce. I've never tried this one, in fact.

    And the shish kabobs look just plain out delicious! That's so much up our alley around here.

  20. They look and sound delish. Crystal is my choice as well.
