I've made it pretty clear that my absolute favorite things about summer involve food. Sometimes it's low-cal summer cocktails or fruity summer drinks but, more than anything, I simply love using my grill to make simple and delicious meals.

Since Labor Day is the unofficial end of the summer (technically, summer doesn't end until September 21st), I'm making sure to take my grill out for one last spin this weekend—and I'm making these 5 delicious Latin grill recipes while I'm at it! From the irresistible grilled smoky margarita, Elotes-style grilled corn or the grilled fruit salad with a cinnamon dip, there's plenty if you're looking for lighter fare. But if you're REALLY serious, then you simply must try the grilled chili verde and the inside-out stuffed jalapeño burgers. Trust me, you won't regret it.

Grilled Smoky Margarita

Ingredients: 3 lbs limes/lemons plus a few oranges, sliced in half, 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 cup tequila, 1/4 cup triple sec, 1 cup simple syrup to taste, 1 pitcher full of ice

Dip the sliced citrus in a bowl of sugar so they have a light coating. Grill the citruson medium high heat until they have char marks. Let them rest until they are coolenough to be juiced . Fill your margarita pitcher halfway full of ice, then add thetequila and trip sec. Add the juice to the ice/tequila mixture- by adding it to ice itwill help cut the tartness of the citrus. Add the simple syrup in small batches until the proper sweetness is achieved.
