I love finding new marinade for chicken. Dress it up and you can have your chicken a million different ways!
I loved this way!
I devised this from several different recipes and it turned out really good! The photos kinda stink but the food was great.
I finally put my tomatoes and peppers to good use! I made a rockin' pico de gallo!
I bought 2 tomato plants and 1 pepper plant this year. They have all been doing very well. But all I usually do with them is add them to quesadillas or salads.
This turned out great and I can't wait to make it again!
