Beer-Marinated Chicken Tacos

This is a recipe made some time ago and we gave it a VERY GOOD rating. I made a notation on the recipe "next time, make sure chicken is cooked longer". Good thing DH does the cooking now. lol

Beer-Marinated Chicken Tacos (makes 4 to 6 servings)

Marinade:

1 cup dark Mexican beer
2 TB dark sesame oil
1 TB finely chopped garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne

6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, about 4 oz each

Guacamole:

2 ripe Haas Avocados
1 TB fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp kosher salt

6 flour or corn tortillas, 6 to 7" in diameter

Marinate thighs for 2 to 4 hrs.

Make guac.

Grill thighs over Direct Medium heat about 8 to 10 minutes, turning once half way through grilling time. Cut thighs into thin strips

Warm tortillas about 1 minute. Fill with chicken and guacamole.

If I read it right, the sesame oil is part of the marinade. It may not be a "Mexican" ingredient, but I use it in marinades regularly. It is a good oil for marinades.

Well, I don't think we can take this thread off the rails... but, I wouldn't say it's impossible.

What I meant was, just because I posted a taco recipe, I was not saying I preferred taco's over pizza.

I would probably use vegetable oil and make sure the oregano was Mexican. Cumin is a must. lime juice and cilantro or epazote if fresh is available.

Craig, why can't you make the recipe as written first. We did and found it very good. THEN you can change whatever you want.

A lot of us like playing with our food?!?

I don't so much cook from cookbook (or website) recipes as use them for inspiration. That's how a lot of us at DC roll. So to follow a recipe exactly doesn't fit our style of cooking. Cooking is art, baking is science. As far as I can tell, Monet didn't use paint-by-number kits. :Wink:
