DIRECTIONS

  • In a nonreactive bowl, combine the chicken, lemon juice, salt, oregano, garlic, and oil; mix thoroughly. Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
  • To make the Lucas spice: Stir together the ground chile, sugar, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Half an hour before cooking, clean the grill thoroughly with a brush and wipe it down with an oil-dampened rag. Preheat the grill on high. Grill the chicken on both sides and then dust lightly with the spice mix. Grill 2 minutes more on each side.
  • Remove to a platter. Cut into thin strips or dice.
  • To serve, smear some beans inside a tortilla. Stud with the chicken and top with a small amount of guacamole and pico de gallo.
  • Note: The chicken may be roasted instead of grilled.
