Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Riesling, Sparkling rosé, and Pinot Noir are my top picks for Mexican. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The Engel Wines Riesling - Kosher with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 20 dollars per bottle.

Engel Wines Riesling - Kosher

A lively off-dry Riesling, with accents of green apple, citrus and tropical fruits, complemented by delicate floral aromas, and a crisp acidity. Enjoy this wine chilled.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a Dutch oven or oven-safe skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 3-4 minutes a side, until chicken is nearly done. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  3. To the same Dutch oven or skillet, add onion, garlic, chilies, jalapeno, cilantro, salt and pepper. Saute until onion is tender. Add lime and orange juice and broth. Place the chicken on top of the mixture, cover and cook until chicken is tender, about 30 minutes.
  4. Once the chicken is tender, remove the Dutch oven from the oven and shred the chicken using two forks. Put the Dutch oven over medium-high heat and mix a slurry of corn starch and water. When the chicken mixture boils, add the slurry and stir continuously until thickened. Remove from heat.
  5. On each tortilla, place 1/6 the chicken mixture and 1/6 the black beans. Top with sour cream, cheese and your favorite pico or salsa.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Some bouillon/stock products contain gluten, some don't. If you are following a gluten-free diet, always read product labels carefully.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Cooking Tips

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • Kosher salt is a type of coarse-grained salt popular among chefs because it is easy to pick up with the fingertips and sticks well when coating meat. The name "kosher salt" comes from the word "koshering", the process of making food suitable for consumption according to Jewish law. You can easily substitute table salt or sea salt in recipes where the salt is being dissolved, but if you're using it to coat meat, you might wish you had the kosher salt.

  • Extra-virgin olive oil is the least refined type of olive oil and therefore contains more of the beneficial compounds that get lost during processing. However, its minimal processing could also mean it has a lower smoke point than other olive oils. Once an oil starts to smoke, it begins to break down, producing a bad flavor and potentially harmful compounds. Unfortunately, the smoke point of an oil depends on so many factors that it is hard to say what the smoke point of an oil really is. For extra-virgin olive oil, it could be anywhere between 200-400 degrees Fahrenheit. Most people recommend using extra-virgin olive oil to add flavor to a finished dish or in cold dishes to be on the safe side. More refined olive oils, canola oil, coconut oil, and clarified butter/ghee are better options for high temperature cooking.
