Chicken and Steak Kebabs

Chicken and Steak Kebabs

Try a new variation on Taco Tuesday: applying McCormick® Taco Seasoning to pieces of chicken and steak, instead of ground meat. Season, skewer and grill with tomatoes, peppers and onions. And serve with warm tortillas, cilantro and sour cream.


Recipe created by two-time "Chopped" champ, Chef James Briscione. He brings creativity to the table with bold flavors and spices in his new Food Network cooking show, "Man Crafted."

  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for oiling grill grates
  • 1 package McCormick® Original Taco Seasoning Mix Packet
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 pound boneless beef sirloin, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 30 shishito peppers Substitutions available
    • 2 bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 30 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Corn tortillas, warmed, for serving Substitutions available
    • Flour tortillas, warmed, for serving
  • Sour cream, for garnish
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish


  • Special equipment: 15 wooden or bamboo skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, taco seasoning and lime juice.

  • Place the beef in one bowl, the chicken in another bowl and combine the peppers, tomatoes and onion in a third bowl. Divide the marinade among the three bowls and toss to coat.

  • Preheat a grill for cooking over medium-high heat. Thread the ingredients onto 15 soaked wooden or bamboo skewers, alternating pieces of beef or chicken with pepper, tomato and onion. (Keep the beef and chicken on separate skewers, as they have different cooking times.) Lightly oil the grill grates. Grill the kebabs, turning once, until cooked to desired doneness, about 6 minutes total for the beef kebabs and 8 to 10 minutes total for the chicken kebabs.

  • Serve with warmed soft tortillas, sour cream and fresh cilantro.
