Tried something new!

Okay, so had an idea so I tried something new tonight. Took some chicken, cut it thin. Marinated in salsa for 4 hours. Added 1 shot of tequila, 1 tblsp of Garlic, some coarse salt and ground pepper to the marinade. Came up with this:



Got the grill nice and hot and grilled the chicken:



Added a tblsp of mild salsa and some Mexican cheese, baked at 350 for 5 min to melt the cheese:



It was pretty amazing. A little negative feedback from people who didn't like salsa, but everybody else loved it.

Infusing a little salsa into meat is pretty delicious, for sure... and that looks like it'd be toothsome. I once put just a little salsa in the very top inch or so of a meatloaf before baking it and it became an instant favorite. The stuff is under-rated as an ingredient, rather than just as a topping.

Well, the one thing I forgot was the green onions on the cheese. I didn't even realize I had forgotten them till we were cleaning up. I think that would have put a nice touch on it. I'd like to point out that even the people who didn't care for salsa still liked the chicken.

A little salsa mixed into the meat on the very top bastes the whole meatloaf with flavor. If you like salsa at all, you will LOVE it! Enjoy!

Here's something newish I did yesterday.

I make zucchini or squash boats all the time and fill with cheese and salsa. This time I added jalapeno slices and crumbled bacon. Never doing it the old way again.

JB, that looks delicious; I am stealing it! (One of the few things I've never even considered and I almost always have so much zucchini I beg people to take some.)

Depending on the size you might need to micro them empty for a little while to make sure they are soft cooked before the bottom burns. Maybe 45 sec or so

Thanks! Little tips like that save SO much frustration with a new dish. I'll remember it.

Looks good! I usually take the stuff I scoop out and
incorporate it back in to the squash. Kind of like twice
baked potatoes if that makes any sense...
