Cripple Creek BBQThis looks a lot more involved than it is, and would be easy to alter for various diets as long as you can eat chicken or pork, peppers and tomatoes (nightshades). Depending on your tastes the onion can be left out, and the vinaigrette could be made with your choice of vinegar instead of the lime/lemon juice. Instead of bouillon, you can replace it with salt. This recipe was posted on Facebook originally by Cripple Creek BBQ which makes some really great sauces.
