These have a lightly charred exterior, with a succulent juicy interior and smoky flavor. A light coating of mildly spicy Chimayo chile adds an exotic, healthy kick. Serve with grilled bread. Delicious!
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1/2 pound zucchini
1/2 pound yellow squash
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 large onion
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
5 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 tablespoon Chimayo chile powder (or ancho, pasilla, or guajillo )
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 limes halved
Preheat grill. Cut squashes into diagonal slices a bit thicker than 1/4 inch. Cut peppers and onion lengthwise into ½-inch-wide strips. Combine vegetables in a large bowl. Mix oil and garlic in a small bowl and pour over vegetables. Toss until well coated. Sprinkle with chile powder, salt, and pepper; toss thoroughly.
Place vegetables in a grill basket and set on grill. Cover and cook about 15 minutes, turning frequently to achieve an even, light charring. Remove to a large bowl and serve at once with lime halves and crema.
