Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 1 ⁄2 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp chopped chipotle pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced
  • 2 onions sliced
  • 8 small 6" flour tortillas, warmed
  • Guacamole
  • Salsa
  • 1 cup shredded Jack or Cheddar cheese

Instructions
 

  • Combine the orange juice, chipotle, lime juice, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in a sealable plastic bag. Add the chicken and marinate in the fridge for an hour.
  • Preheat a grill or stovetop grill pan until hot. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard what's left in the bag. Grill the chicken for 4 to 5 minutes per side, until lightly charred and cooked all the way through. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • While the chicken cooks heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over high heat.
  • Cook the bell peppers and onions until charred and caramelized on the outside, about 10 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Slice the chicken into thin pieces.
  • For a dramatic presentation, place the chicken on top of the hot peppers in the skillet and bring the skillet sizzling to the table.
  • Serve with warm tortillas, guacamole, salsa, and cheese.
