"Pinchitos" are Spanish for "kebabs" and are often served tapas-style in Spain. Our Southern Spain Pinchito Spice adds a Spanish-influenced curry flavor to whatever your using it in. It works here both as a marinade for the meat and as a dipping sauce for the grilled kebabs.



For a vegetarian option: Use 14 oz. extra firm tofu or 1 lb. eggplant in place of meat. For eggplant, sprinkle cubes generously with salt and let sit in a colander for 30 min. to remove excess moisture before marinating.

For a vegan option: Make the vegetarian substitutions and use a non-dairy yogurt for the sauce.


For sauce: Whisk together all sauce ingredients and refrigerate until ready to serve pinchitos.

For pinchitos: In a gallon-size zip top bag or other sealable container, thoroughly combine Pinchito Spice, vinegar, and oil. Add meat and toss to coat all pieces with marinade. Refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours. Preheat grill to medium-high. Thread skewers with alternating meat and veggie pieces. Grill 5 to 7 min. per side, or to desired doneness. Transfer skewers to a platter and sprinkle with crushed Aleppo chiles to taste.

Serving Suggestions

As a meal, serve over a bed of rice and drizzle with sauce. As an appetizer, serve on smaller skewers with sauce on the side for dipping.
