This recipe is California Comfort Food to the “T”. Its succulent, delicious and has that fresh element that makes your body want to do backflips and take a jog on the beach. It also has that Latino flare which is oh so authentico de los Mexicanos esta en California. I love it! The other great thing is that its actually really easy which is always helpful. Since its pretty much an endless summer here grilling on the barbecue isn’t relegated for just June through September. I love grilling so much that I’ll fire up my Charbroil just to cook one turkey patty for myself for lunch in January. But if barbecuing is out of the question for you at the moment feel free to remember (or pinterest!) this for future use. Enjoy!
