Always a favorite for entertaining! This keeps the heat out of the kitchen and give my husband the chance to show off his grilling skills. Serve with warm flour tortillas, and bowls of salsa, guacamole, grilled onions and peppers, and grated cheese.

I admit I was skeptical but sure enough, awesome flavor! I marinated for a few extra hours but otherwise I wouldn't change much, maybe a little extra jalapeno juice.
