Chili Lime Cholula Shrimp and Pepper Skewers

The weather has cooled down just a bit here.  I love that we are 100 degrees one week and then next... it's only 80!  Hey, I'll take what I can get, trust me.  I will not complain about the cool down.  It has been quite nice.  Heck, we even got to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air over the weekend!  Of course, it's still perfect weather for grilling!!  With that said, I really wanted to try out the chili lime Cholula(**) on some shrimp.  It just seemed like the best flavor combo for shrimp.  Although, I will say that the Chili Lime Cholula is not one of my favorites, it does work really well with this recipe.  It brings a bit of summer to this dish, which I love...  And honestly, you just can't go wrong with shrimp on the barbie :)

Enjoy your weather - it's been cold and rainy for days! Better to pack in but I hope it stops raining for the big move.

Wishing you were my neighbor right now so I could sneak over to your house and eat dinner with you. Sigh. The shrimp looks perfect.

Oh how I love shrimp! Especially with chili and lime! This looks so pretty, too :)

The thing I like about shrimp is how you always know when they are done by the tails turning pink. It doesn't get easier than that!

That kind of thing is excellent for barbecues and I bet that it taste great with a beer or wine. The perfect match.
