• 2 pounds boneless pork chops, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup Italian dressing
  • 2 tablespoons red pepper flakes, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seed
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 24 6-inch wooden skewers, (soak in water for 30 minutes before using)

Place pork cubes in resealable plastic bag; add salad dressing, red pepper flakes and fennel seed. Seal bag; refrigerate for at least 1 hour to overnight to marinate pork. When ready to cook, thread pork, peppers and onion on skewers. Discard marinade. Place kabobs on greased broiler pan and broil 5 inches from heat, or grill over medium-hot coals, for about 5 minutes per side.

Makes 24 appetizers.

Tailgate Tip: If tailgating at the stadium, thread pork and vegetables on skewers at home, and store in plastic containers in a portable cooler until ready to grill.

Make these quick and easy, spicy Italian kabobs to kick-off your tailgate. Great for a game day appetizer party. Serve along with Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Brushetta, Tailgaters Tenderloin Sandwiches, Pineapple-Mango Salsa with Baked Flour Tortilla Chips and Ham and Cherry Roll-ups.
