How to Make these Skewers
The ingredients are simply roasted and skewered, making them a delicious and super easy app that can be prepped ahead and rewarmed. This is basically a sheet pan recipe where roasting commences, is simple to put together and a cinch to clean up.
There's a blend of bold flavors and textures with the creaminess of the potatoes and spicy char on the chorizo to balance the sweet tenderness of the peppers. I also included a couple poblano peppers in addition to the bells for another subtle hint of heat.
The skewers hold their own in deliciousness, but this make-ahead Roasted Garlic Crème puts things over the top. It's no secret I'm a huge fan of roasted garlic, and whipping up this dip was a no-brainer. You don't need the entire head for the recipe. I like having extra on hand just to schmear on some crusty bread. So good!
The dip also combines tangy crème fraiche, Greek yogurt, and is brightened with fresh lime and cilantro. A perfect complement for the skewers, and even a delicious spread for sandwiches, burgers and tacos.
To serve, spread some of the Garlic Crème on a plate, layer the skewers on top with a squeeze of lime and extra cilantro or parsley. Keep some of the extra crème on the side to pass separately. Hope you enjoy! Cheers for now!! xx, Kim
