Tequila Lime Chicken
1/2 C Gold Tequila
1 C freshly squeezed lime juice (5-6 Limes – don’t cheat it must be fresh lime juice)
1/2 C Freshly squeezed orange juice (2 Oranges – you can cheat here with store bought)
1 t chili powder
1 Jalapeno, sliced into rounds
3 Cloves garlic, minced
1 T fresh cilantro, chopped
2-3 lbs. Chicken Tenderloins
Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, chili powder, jalapeno pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
Add the chicken tenderloins. Refrigerate overnight
Yield: 3 cups
Juice of 1 Lime
1/4 C Red onion, small dice
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 t salt
1/2 t freshly ground pepper
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
Cut the avocados in 1/2, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl.
Immediately add the lime juice, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. (this prevents the avocados from oxidizing and turning brown)
Using a knife or fork, mix well. You want to blend all the ingredients, but do not over mix – you want to keep some pieces of avocado intact.
Add the tomatoes. Mix gently and taste for salt and pepper.

1/4 C red onion, chopped
