“Fresh chiles vary greatly in taste and price. A fruity serrano gives this dish authentic Mexican flavor, but jalapenos cost less and are more commonly available. To save time, use canned tomatoes and corn in the salsa.”

When I told our 12-year-old daughter, Amanda, That we were grilling chicken, she asked to make a marinade. Now we use her combination of honey, lemon, garlic and seasonings every time we grill chicken. —Tamara McFarlin
Try these tempting tacos when you're looking for a change of pace from regular tacos. A mild zing from the lime juice in the marinade for the chicken comes through after grilling. I like to serve them with salsa, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.
