It’s been chilly and gray here the past few days, which has really helped my mind transition to fall. Though I may be willing to part ways with the produce that is no longer in season and evenings too hot to actually enjoy a walk to the park with the kids, one thing I’m not ready to let go of just yet is grilling. That I will probably do until the first snow falls. (Please let that still be months away.) Hopefully you aren’t quite over grilling yet because this meal was incredible and I couldn’t wait a moment longer to share it with you.
I found this sauce in the back of a cookbook I’ve been loving on lately, in that oft forgotten but truly fabulous section many cookbooks have devoted to sauces. I couldn’t quite decide what to do with it, but eventually I settled on pairing it with marinated grilled chicken and a sprinkle of cotija cheese. The whole thing is so very simple but was one of those meals that had me “oooh”ing and “aaahh”ing with every bite. I paired it with assorted grilled veggies and grilled garlic flatbread which just happened to be perfect for scooping up the left over sauce. Thankfully this could also be made in a skillet so I think we’ll continue to enjoy it throughout the coming cold months.
