Ingredients
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Marinating time: 24 hours
Cooking time: 15 minutes.

1 1/4 pounds skinless chicken thigh meat, cut into 20 one-ounce segments
1 1/4 pounds lean skirt steak, fat removed, cut into 10 two-ounce segments
20 large shrimp
1 onion, chopped
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 green pepper
1 red onion
1 medium papaya (optional)

Directions
Yield: 10 skewers
Serving size: 1 skewer

Sofrito:

1 – Place chicken pieces, steak pieces, and shrimp in a shallow dish. Place all sofrito ingredients in an electric blender. Blend into a coarse puree. Pour entire contents of blender over chicken, steak, and shrimp. Cover and marinate 24 hours in the refrigerator.

2 – When ready to grill skewers, slice green pepper into 20 strips, cut red onion into 20 wedges, and peel papaya and cut into 20 cubes. To assemble skewers, place 2 pieces of chicken, 1 piece of steak, 2 shrimp, 2 strips of green pepper, 2 wedges of red onion, and 2 cubes of papaya on each skewer, alternating for color and variety. Discard any remaining sofrito. Place the skewers on a hot grill and cook thoroughly, turning to heat evenly, for approximately 15 minutes until chicken and beef are cooked through.

Buying and storing Bell Peppers………………………..

Peppers should be firm when you buy them. They should be shiny and richly colored. Avoid any that are shriveled or have soft spots. Then to store them: Refrigerate peppers, unwashed, in a plastic bag in the vegetable drawer. Keep them dry, as moisture will eventually cause them to rot. Shelf life: Red and yellow peppers will last four to five days; green, about a week.
