  • 1

    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Soak skewers in water 10 minutes; drain.

  • 2

    In medium microwavable bowl, mix cheese, chiles and Sriracha sauce. Microwave uncovered on High 4 to 5 minutes, stirring once after 2 minutes, until cheese melts and mixture is smooth; keep warm.

  • 3

    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix chicken, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and the taco seasoning mix. On each of 4 skewers, thread chicken, leaving 1/4-inch space between each piece.

  • 4

    On remaining 4 skewers, thread alternating bell peppers and green onions. Brush vegetables generously on both sides with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil; sprinkle with salt.

  • 5

    Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook vegetables 6 to 8 minutes and chicken 10 to 14 minutes, turning kabobs 1 or 2 times, until grill marks form, vegetables are tender and chicken is no longer pink in center. Serve with cheese sauce.

Expert Tips

  • Craving carbs too? Stuff chicken and veggies into warmed soft tortillas, or serve over rice.
  • If vegetables kabobs are finished before chicken kabobs, keep warm by covering tightly with foil or placing in a 200°F oven. Cheese sauce can also be kept warm, covered with foil, in the same oven.
  • Metal skewers can be used instead of bamboo. Bamboo skewers are soaked in water so they're less likely to burn; there is no need to soak if you use metal skewers.
