    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!

    OUTSTANDING marinade for chicken!!! WOW... I only made the chicken portion of this recipe, didn't skewer it, and cooked it on my grill pan. I shredded the chicken and used it on a mexican style salad, and used a store bought pineapple salsa as the dressing. I will be making this often. Next time, I'll use the chicken for mexican torta sandwiches!
