Souvlaki With An Attitude

"This recipe has a nice punch, not too spicy but mighty tasty. If any heat scares you leave out the jalapeno. Another option is to serve the cubes on toothpicks as an appetizer with the sauce on the side - Makes about 32 appetizers. If you half freeze the tenderloins they are very easy to cut into cubes. This recipe BBQ's well."
