Hola! Are you enjoying this weather just like I am? I think so. I love the fact that we can enjoy the outdoors, fire up the grill and spend quality outdoor time with the family. New Jersey can get really hot and humid during the summer and that’s the perfect excuse to enjoy outdoor activities like camping, going to beach or a simple picnic or cookout in a nearby park. I mean, who wants to be inside the house when its like 85°outside? Not this Caribbean girl!

When it comes to cookouts I like to prepare easy and refreshing recipes.Today I want to share my recipe for a colorful chickpea salad; perfect for any outdoor activity. its very refreshing and very light! The original recipe calls for Jalapeño peppers but I found a condiment that gives my salad extra flavor: El Yucateco® Green Habanero Hot sauce! which is made with fresh green habanero peppers, garlic, select spices and seasonings. You can also add El Yucateco® Red Habanero Hot sauce, this one is made with red habanero peppers, tomato, and select spices and seasonings; another flavor that you can use is El Yucateco® Black Label Reserve Hot Sauce–Created from fire roasted habanero’s, this rich smoky sauce stands out from all others with its unique flavor and appearance. For this recipe I prefer the green habanero sauce since it packs a little more heat than the red habanero but it has less vinegar than the average hot sauce.
