Barbecue Vegetable Tacos with BBQ Sauce Creama

I was so excited when I found out that Jay Ducote was going to sponsor us! When I think of barbecue sauce, of course I think of the grill. What is better on a summer day than throwing some stuff on the grill for family and friends? When I have company, I like to include something for everyone. I thought doing a vegetarian taco would be a nice option. My husband, a big meat eater, was satisfied with the meatiness of the Portobello mushrooms, but don’t be shy to grab some chicken, steak or swordfish and grill it up the same way along with the veggies. Tacos are a fun dish and the Jay D’s sauce compliments the vegetables so well! I like to keep my cooking simple, so a great sauce and some vegetables makes a quick, delicious, healthy meal anytime.

Barbecue Vegetable Tacos with BBQ Sauce Crema
by Sarah M.

1 pound small portobello mushrooms, halved
1 zucchini, sliced into rounds
1 squash, sliced into rounds
1 red onion, cut into chunks
1 each yellow and red bell pepper, cut into chunks
Olive oil
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Jay D's Louisiana Barbecue Sauce

To serve:
Small flour tortillas
BBQ sauce crema (see below)
1/4 head red cabbage, shredded

It is important that the vegetables be cut into similar sizes so they cook evenly. Place all the vegetables in a large bowl, drizzle a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss all the vegetables to coat. Alternating types and colors, thread the vegetables onto skewers. Baste the vegetable skewers with Jay D's Louisiana Barbecue Sauce.

Heat grill to medium-high (350° - 400°F). Cook the vegetable skewers on the grill for about 10-15 minutes, or until the vegetables become tender and a bit charred. While cooking, turn the skewers occasionally and continue basting with the barbecue sauce.

When then vegetables are done, turn off the grill. Throw the tortillas on the grill for about 15-20 seconds a side and keep warm in a kitchen towel.

I like to serve this up family style so everyone can make their own!

BBQ Sauce Crema

1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 Tablespoons Jay D's Louisiana Molasses Mustard
Juice from 1/2 lime
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Mix all the ingredients together until thoroughly combined. I suggest making this first so it sits and the flavors combine.
