OK this one is totally cheating, but it was so good. I bought pre-marinated thinly sliced chicken breasts at Trader Joes. I know, it’s ballsy to write about using food out of a bag, but seriously it was awesome…
First I heated up the grill. I got the chicken out. I got out some hatch green chilis and some corn tortillas. I put the tortillas into a foil pouch and sprinkled them with water Then I had moment of inspiration. I remembered that I had some jalapeno cream cheese. And so I thought I would stuff the chilies with the cream cheese.
omg. These were so easy and so good.
Grill the chicken and the peppers. 5 Minutes on each side for the chicken, it cooks fast. When the peppers are blacked, take them in, place them in a zip lock for a few minutes. Then peel, make a slit, pull out the seeds, stuff them with jalapeño cream cheese top with cheddar cheese and return them to the grill for about 2 minutes so the filling can get hot and cheese on top melts. Warm the tortillas in the foil pouch on the grill, about 5 minutes.
Best picture of the night, in my opinion…
Serving was easy, slice chicken, serve in warm tortillas. This made great left overs.
The pollo asada at Trader Joes is $5.50 a pound and the chilies were, I have no idea .50 or something. We bought more to make this again the week. It took ten minutes to get dinner on the table, perfect for a weeknight.
