Beergarita Chicken over Chipotle Gouda Grits

Beergaria Chicken over Chipotle Gouda Grits Recipe - chicken marinated in margarita mix, beer, and rotel, grilled and served over chipotle gouda grits and topped with spicy black beans. We literally licked our plates! Great mexican fiesta! My husband inhaled this and asked if I made extra - next time I will double the recipe. It is that good!

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. Pretty sure if I made this for the man he'd ask me to marry him right there and then! This sounds amazing!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
