Chipotle and Lime Grilled Chicken Breasts

6 chicken breasts
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup orange juice
2 T lime juice
2 T soy sauce or tamari
1 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. ground chipotle chile
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. paprika
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
NOT 4 minced scallions

Combine above ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Marinate chicken breasts in marinade at least two hours or, preferably, overnight.

Grill marinated chicken over coals or gas grill for 35 minutes, turning occasionally until cooked through and golden brown.

Fiesta Grilled Avocados

4-6 avocado halves
2 T olive oil
1 tsp. fajita seasoning
shredded cheese
sour cream
lime juice

Place olive oil in small bowl. Dip avocado halves in oil. Sprinkle with fajita seasoning and squeeze lime juice on top.

Heat coals or grill to medium heat (375 degrees). Brush grill with olive oil to prevent sticking. Grill on cut side for 5 minutes. Turn over and grill for 3 minutes. Place grilled avocados on foil lined baking pan (on grill) and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Heat until cheese melts.
Remove from grill and add 1 T of sour cream and salsa (fresh tomatoes work too).
Dinner was great! Riley ate a whole avocado. Why didn't we think to grill avocados sooner?
