Tequila can be used in more ways than just for margaritas. In this recipe, I add the tequila and lime juice to the chicken marinade to add a brightness and “kick” that contrasts with the smokiness of the chicken cooked on the grill.
These enchiladas are stuffed with a combination of shredded poached chicken, sweet corn and Monterey Jack cheese, and then smothered with a homemade verde sauce made with tomatillos and other peppers creating a flavorful, tangy topping with just a hint of spice.
Fish tacos be are one of my favorite meals, especially when they’re freshly battered and served with herb yogurt sauce, pico de gallo, shredded cabbage and warmed flour tortillas.
Chipotles in adobo sauce are smoked and dried peppers, which are rehydrated and packed in a mix of tomato paste, herbs and vinegar. The combination adds a smoky, spicy kick to the chicken served with the cheesy rice and bean bake.
Al pastor tacos consist of an amazing blend of marinated, tender and aromatic pork with pineapple.

Burrito bowls are my go-to weeknight meal. They are easy to make and serve family-style so everyone can assemble their own bowls with their own desired toppings.
