I love Cornish hens and the idea of grilling them with this flavorful mexican-inspired marinade really got my attention. The recipe recommends serving this dish with a corn salsa. Prep time does not include marinating time (overnight).
Recipe is from the La Cocina de Taos Restaurant in business since the 1950's. The recipe says it is alot of fun to put together, but also warns not to leave any of the ingredients out. The ingredients for this mole sauce are made in the blender and then heated.
This is a Deen Brothers' recipe and it is absolutely delicious. Although the recipe calls for four tenderloins (2 double packs), the meat disappears fast especially if you have a hungry family or crowd. This is a great entertaining dish for company.
