    I really wanted to like this dish after reading the recipe, but the end flavor of the sauce was off-balance for me. Pretty sure it was the bbq sauce. Next time I'd try swapping it for maybe tomato sauce or enchilada sauce

    This took a bit of doing in the Uk but I found Fontina via Waitrose & Adobes via Mexgrocers, this is yummers, I'm a huge cheese fan anyway (my waistline isn't, but halve the portions if inclined as much as me). I loved the lime/coriander flavours. (Chuckled though at "rinse your thights"). I used breast fillets as always, but thanks for a great recipe I can easily adapt as always. Had
