TOTAL TIME NEEDED
This juicy and fragrant slow cooked chicken is a staple in our house for taco night. It's run-down-the-back-of-your-hand good!
CORN & BLACK BEAN SALAD
Sweet and salty, this fresh Southwestern-inspired salad leans on a perfect balance of corn, bell pepper, black beans and creamy feta.
Cumin, paprika and cayenne make this fragrant rice a perfect side for any Mexican-inspired meals.
Pair this with an Italian grape a little further south than the Barbera. You can't go wrong with a Sangiovese from Chianti! A medium body wine, the high tannins and acidity will pair beautifully with the tomato based sauce without overpowering the chicken. Acidity will help cut through any fat or oil leaving you with a clean finish on the palate.

The Aztec name for avocado was ahuacatl, which translated to testicle. Maybe save this fact until after people have finished their guac!
Sangiovese likely derived its name from the Latin 'sanguis Jovis', meaning Jupiter's blood. Jupiter is the Roman god of the sky and thunder, and king of all the gods.
