June is here and summer is literally around the corner. Kebabs and skewers just seem to scream “summer vibes” so I decided to create an air fryer friendly skewer recipe for you to try. I called them fiesta skewers because they are truly a party in your mouth and made with southwest seasonings like chili powder and cumin.

Use these skewers over a salad , as a meal prep main dish , or even as a quick summer gathering appetizer
