It’s grilling time and I headed over to my local Walmart and picked up some tender and juicy Smithfield® Ribs!
I can’t wait to share with you my super easy and delicious Mexican Ribs! Yes folks that grilled ribs with all our favorite Mexican flavors.
I’m cooking with Smithfield® Ribs and we’re about to have a Hog Wild Throwdown!
Smithfield® Ribs are juicy hand-trimmed, extra-tender, with no added hormones or steroids.
No matter what your level of experience is in the kitchen or at the grill, Smithfield® Ribs are sure to impress.
The ultimate grill master knows you can’t have a successful grilling experience without tender Smithfield® Ribs, great sauce and high quality charcoal!
So while at Walmart don’t forget to also pick up a bag of Kingsford Charcoal and KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce!
To create the ultimate grilled Mexican Ribs you must start off with lots of citrus fruits!
I marinated my Smithfield® Ribs in lemon, orange, lime zest and juice.
I also added extra virgin olive oil, Mexican oregano, smoked paprika and few other delicious spices.
The trick is to marinate our Mexican Ribs in the fridge overnight to make sure all that Mexican goodness soaks deep into our ribs!
I removed the ribs from the fridge and allowed them to come to room temperature while I prepped my grill!
Lay your ribs on the top grill rack away from the coals and grill!
Lastly, coat ribs in our KC Masterpiece Chipotle BBQ sauce!
Remove the ribs from the grill, allow to rest about 10 minutes and it’s time to serve these babies up!
