This is a blend of two cultures. Coming from Jamaica and from Mexico , In Jamaica where the Jerk spice mix comes from is one of the most delicious blend I think that is out there. It combines the sweet allspice (pimenta)and others with a more French style herbs I would say like thyme and the good basic seasonings of garlic, and chilies.
The key is in the marinade for the flavor
1 lb Chicken Breast
1 Onion, 1 inch dice
2 Bell Peppers, colored, 1 inch dice
1 clove Garlic
1 slice Onion
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Lime juice
1 heaping tablespoon yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped Cilantro (optional)
1 teaspoon Jalapeno
Combine the ingredients of the marinade in a stainless bowl.
Cut the chicken breast into smaller pieces to get more surface area exposure to the marinade, then place it in the marinade. Let sit for 30 min to 6 hours.
Remove chicken from the marinade and dry off.
BBQ the chicken and the vegetables in a vegetable basket.
Slice the Chicken and warm the tortillas.
Add a little guacamole(recipe follows) and we had a bit of chipotle dressing that we used as well.
Add the garlic, onion in a molcajete
Add the salt and grind with the pestal till it is well minced.
Add the lime juice, yogurt, jalapeno and cilantro. I start with half a lime then add more if I think it needs it after it is blended. Add more salt if needed.
