    Default The Best Tequila Lime Chicken

    I guarantee you that this is the best tequila lime chicken that you will have. This is not my concoction, but a recipe that has become a favorite of mine. The sauce may look like a pain to make with all the ingredients, but believe me, it is totally worth it and it makes the meal.

    The original recipe only calls for 1/4 teaspoon of tequila, but I use 1/4 cup and I think its great.

    Tequila Marinade
    1 cup water
    1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    2 teaspoons minced garlic
    1 teaspoon liquid mesquite smoke
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
    ¼ cup tequila

    4 chicken breast fillets

    Mexi-Ranch Sauce
    ¼ cup mayonnaise
    ¼ c sour cream
    1 tablespoon milk
    2 teaspoons white vinegar
    1 teaspoon minced canned jalapeño slices
    1 teaspoon minced onion
    ¼ teaspoon dried parsley
    ¼ teaspoon Tabasco pepper sauce
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon dried dill weed
    1/8 teaspoon paprika
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/8 teaspoon chili powder
    Dash garlic powder

    Monterey Jack Cheese

    1) Prepare marinade and add chicken to the bowl cover and chill for 2-3 hours.
    2) Make Mexi-ranch dressing in medium bowl, then cover and chill till needed.
    3) Cook chicken in oven or on the grill. Add Monterey Jack cheese and remove from grill once melted.
    4) Add Mexi-ranch sauce and enjoy!

    Tequila Grilled Fish Recipe

    tilapia fillets (about 1 pound)

    4 tablespoons oil

    2 tablespoons lime juice

    zest of 2 limes

    1 tablespoon fresh basil, minced

    2 teaspoons tequila

    salt and pepper to taste


    Now even though I did not mention it, with tacos and anytime I do grilled fish recipes on the grill I always grill up some onion rings, or sliced onions and put them in my tacos. Now you can combine all ingredients except for the tilapia fillets in a resealable plastic bag. Turn to mix and add tilapia fillets. Seal and refrigerator for 30 minutes. Preheat grill. Pour marinade into a saucepan. Bring marinade to a low boil and remove from heat. Grill tilapia fillets for about 3 minutes per side over a high heat. When fish turns opaque remove from grill and slice them up into thin strips.

    Then take these and place them in some grilled corn tortillas, add some of those grilled onions, thinly sliced cabbage and maybe top of with either (or both) a little of that marinade and some hot sauce. Or you can take some sour cream and mix it with some of the marinade and hot sauce and then just top it off with that.
