I have not tried this recipe but I am going to very soon. It sounded so delicious that I had to share it. This recipe does not include marinating time.

Thanks Gingerbear, this was great. We used the salsa for the chicken and for some salmon, it was very popular!! Left out the jalapeno and cayenne/chili from both recipes just because our diners can't have hot spice. But I can see those ingredients would really make it. I didn't use the food processor, and it worked out well. It's great to have a recipe that uses chicken thighs on the bbq - and from the comments around the table, it was very tasty.

This was very good and a big hit with my dad at on Fathers Day. I cut the cayenne way back to about 1/4 teaspoon since I was fixing it for some non-heat-lovers and I left out the salt completely since my chili powder had salt in it. I'll definitely make this again. I'd like to try it on shrimp!

This is just one of the many excellent recipes that can be found in Bobby Flay's Bold American Food. My faforite cookbook of all time. Check it out.
