Grilled Chicken Tacos

I decided last month to re-up my subscription to F&W.  It had been on hiatus for a couple months and unfortunately my pallet & plating was starting to slowly falter.   So after an evening trip to my local Barnes & Noble, I decided to pick up  a copy of my once favorite magazine and test out one it's newer recipe phenoms.  Back on the Mexican kick so here's to our friends at Dos Toros.

Grilled - Chicken Tacos

  • 3 tomatoes chopped
  • 3 limes juiced
  • 2 pinches of Salt
  • Tequila
  • 4-5 medium chicken thighs
  • Cap full of canola oil
  • 1 jalapeno diced
  • Paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper
  • grilled or steamed tortillas
To make marinade, combine tomatoes, lime juice, jalapeno, water, salt in a blender.  Pour over chicken and refrigerate for a couple hours.  Add a little tequila for extra flavor. One marinated, season chicken with remaining spices then over medium high heat grill chicken thighs, flipping once until cooked through.  This should take about 15 minutes.  Let chicken rest for 5 minutes before slicing.  

To assemble Tacos:

In no particular order:  Chicken, chopped avocados, chopped tomato, red onion, and shredded jack cheese.  Salsa & Cilantro are optional.  Serve with grilled corn and black beans.
