This is a pretty easy recipe that makes enough to serve 4-5 people. Add the ingredients:  tomato sauce, lime juice, garlic and chipotle peppers to a blender or food processor. Puree these ingredients into a marinade. In the meantime, put the chicken in storage bag. Once the sauce is ready, pour it over the chicken within the storage bag. Let this set for at least 6 hours or overnight. When the chicken has set long enough, you can grill it. However, right before grilling, use a basting brush to rub olive oil over the chicken, then sprinkle a bit of paprika and pepper to season it. You can throw out the bag with the leftover marinade. When the chicken is done grilling, let it set for at least 5 minutes. This will provide it with the necessary cool down time. After which, you can either serve as the main entree or in a tortilla. You can dress it up with whatever you like from sour cream to lettuce…

This dish adds a festive touch to any meal. It’s got just the right amount of flavor and it’s not bland by any means. However, nor is it too spicy for the average person. It’s a flavorful blend that will make your taste buds tingle.
