Since we knew we were spending the day indoors watching the Patriots make it to the Super Bowl, we faked some time outside by grilling some tacos on our balcony during the game. We were even able to get together all the ingredients without leaving the house. Utilizing my leftover chiles in adobo, I crafted a marinade based on this Epicurious recipe for spicy chipotle marinade. We grilled the meat on the Mangrate grilling system that my boyfriend received as part of his Christmas bounty.
Alterations: Instead of marinating a broken down chicken overnight, I used the marinade on some thawed chicken thighs and only let them stew for a couple of hours. We also put some sliced red onions in a foil packet with a little bit of olive oil, Old Bay, cumin and oregano and let them caramelize while everything else was getting ready. We toasted up some tortillas, chopped up some cabbage and cilantro and pulled everything together.
Do-again?: The chicken was awesome - definitely a marinade I’d try again. The only thing lacking was either some sour cream, avocado or salsa to make things a little less dry.
