Beergarita Chicken over Chipotle Gouda Grits

This is one of the best things we've had in a while.  It was SO delicious.  I set the plate down in front of Chicken Legs and when I looked up, it was gone!  He inhaled it.  He said he wished I had made more.  Next time I will!

This dish is easy to make.  I marinaded the chicken in a mixture of frozen margarita mix and beer - hence the name "Beergarita Chicken".  It was great.  The grits were to die for too.  If you don't have any Chipotle Gouda, you can use regular Gouda cheese and add a little ground chipotle.  Either way, this dish is to-die-for!

1 can rotel
1 tsp garlic powder

4 boneless chicken breasts

In a large ziplock bag, combine all ingredients.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.  Grill chicken approximately 10-12 minutes or until done.  Alternately, you can saute the chicken in a skillet for 3-4 minutes per side.  Serve chicken over grits and top with black beans.

1 1/2 cup quick cook grits (not instant)
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 - 2 cup shredded chipotle gouda cheese

In a medium pan, bring chicken broth to a boil. Slowly stir in grits. Reduce heat to medium low. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally Stir in cheese. Cook until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

Black Beans
1 15 oz can black beans
1 10 oz can Rotel diced tomatoes and chilies

Drain and rinse black beans.  Combine black beans and Rotel in a sauce pan.  Heat 5 minutes.

  1. ranch mix is mentioned in the directions, but
    not in the ingredients.

  2. I love Beer Margaritas and cheese grits, so this recipe definitely got my attention!

  3. Chipotle gouda grits. I'M SPEECHLESS with joy!

  4. Lookin' good. I finally convinced the hubby after 14 years that grits could be so much more than plain.

  5. Here's where you must forgive me, as I'm a true Southerner, but I do not like grits...

    What would be a good alternative to the grits as a side for this?

    Honestly, I AM a Southerner.

  6. Chipotle gouda grits? SHUT YO' MOUTH! I could eat just that part and be happy.

  7. Keri - I'm not a grits fan either, but these grits are nothing like you get at the Waffle House or Cracker Barrel. I promise! If you aren't daring enough to try them, you could serve this over some Mexican rice.

  8. It's really appreciating article.I used to search for these sort of article always.Thanks for sharing your creative writing abilities.
