    Lori Fields's Note:

    This recipe was inspired by a meal I had at a local restaurant. The marinade is also great if you want to leave the chicken breasts whole and grill out in the summer. Of course, a good margarita or sangria are my beverages of choice with this dish.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Marinade

    • 340.19 g Corona beer
    • 78.07 ml tequila (Jose Cuervo Gold is best)
    • 78.07 ml Rose's lime juice or 78.07 ml lime juice

    Fixins

    Toppings (as desired)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium bowl, combine liquid ingredients.
    2. 2
      Add chicken strips and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
    3. 3
      (Overnight works best, if possible) Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet (it works best for blackening the chicken).
    4. 4
      When thoroughly heated, add the chicken and cook until just starting to turn golden.
    5. 5
      Add the pepper and onion rings and cook until chicken starts to blacken and onions start to caramelize.
    6. 6
      Heat the tortillas in a tortilla warmer.
    7. 7
      If you don't have a tortilla warmer, I've found that putting the tortillas in a glass pie dish with a damp cloth covering them in a microwave for+/- 2 minutes works for me.
    8. 8
      Place 1 or 2 strips of chicken with some of the grilled onions and peppers in a tortilla.
    9. 9
      Top as desired with remaining ingredients.
    10. 10
      It's kinda fun to let people create their own.

      I have to say I was very leary about the corona but it came out great. I think I found a new fav marinade for chicken.

      Fabulous taste, simple ingredients and easy to throw together! Instead of a Corona, I used a can of the King of Beers (Bud). I used a very large skillet and I'm sure I tantalized the neighbors with the aroma of my Mexican kitchen tonight! My husband has requested we try this with steak strips next time.
