    larchie's Note:

    This is a recipe I recently adapted from Cooking Light - I was a little iffy at first about it b/c it didn't have any Mexican spices, but it ended up being really, really good. We used a Frontera (Rick Bayless's brand) salsa, and it worked really well with this. This is a super easy recipe and while you do have to wait for the marinade to marinate, the hands on time is pretty low.
