Mexican Fiesta on the Kettle

Mexican Celebration Menu For Your Own Backyard

From the Tacos to the Tostados, we love it ALL! Here we are poolside - it's already hot in south Georgia - with a Kettle full of fiesta.

  • Carne Asada Tacos
  • Citrus Chili Shrimp Tacos
  • Various Salsas
  • Queso Fundido and Seared Shishito Peppers

Pop a jalapeño in your margarita and join us by the Kettle.


For the Tacos:

  • Flank steak seasoned with S & P, chili powder, cumin, & garlic powder. (You can also use a Taco Seasoning Packet.) And topped with pickled onions, cilantro, and Cotija cheese. TIP: The key to tenderness is how you carve it. Cut thin strips against the grain of the meat.
  • Shrimp marinated in olive oil, chili flakes, lemon & lime zest, S & P. And topped with slaw and cilantro.

Tacos on the Kettle

The Griddle does the heavy lifting cooking the steak and shrimp as well as the tomatoes, jalapeño, and onion for the Salsa Roja. We also used it to warm a dish of Queso, and grill the tortillas! Meanwhile, shishito peppers were searing in a skillet on the Side Kick. 

Everyone is a fan of gathering and eating by the Kettle. But add to that no mess in the kitchen and we say, "Sí, por favor!"
