Finally found that wondful tequila-marinated chicken recipe...but it could do with the fact that I finally broke down and purchased some tequila BLANCO...do NOTNOTNOT use regular Cuervo on this one, use white tequila, it totally makes the difference! The chicken is wonderful and tender, the peppers came out perfectly charred and sweet, the onion, well, grilled onion is just delectable. The only thing I recommend is for 4 chicken breasts you can slice the peppers and onions thinner and grill in a grill basket, to make it go further for a crowd bigger than you and your spouse and kids, and slice the chicken thinner. Otherwise 12" tortillas is recommended for the cut called for in the chicken and veggies. I used one large chipotle in sauce and minced it, and froze the remaining chipotles in ice cube trays for later use. Little to no kick...might be cheaper to use a tbsp or two (or whole can) of hot chopped jalapenos instead...might try that, less work nex time! Throws together quickly and an all-around wonderful meal even the kids will love!

The citrus notes combine very well with the hint of chipotle (and yes, chipotle lovers beware - it is only a hint). Very good for those who like the flavours of southwest cuisine, but dislike the heat (like my family). Will make again, for sure.

Simple and delicious! Easily doable for a weeknight meal or for weekend guests. This recipe is definitely in my top 10. Try it! You won't regret it.

YUM!!! This is one of my FAVORITE fajita recipes! (I even like it more than most restaurant fajitas :). This is an easy dinner. I make the chipotle puree recipe and then freeze it in ice cube trays so I can use it later. It is REALLY easy to just measure and freeze then put in a baggie to save for the next few weeks or months. I always slice the chicken into thin slices before I marinate so it all gets a lot of the marinade flavor. Also, continuing to put marinade on the chicken and onions and peppers while they are cooking gives everything a really nice flavor.
