1 1/2 lbs trimmed boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp ancho chili powder
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For serving

12 mini corn taco shells, warmed (double up if desired)

1 large avocado, cored and sliced

1 small red or yellow onion, chopped

3 Tbsp chopped cilantro

Lime wedges, for serving (optional)

  5. Transfer the bag to the refrigerator and allow the chicken to marinate for at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours.
  6. Preheat a grill over medium-high heat when ready to cook (it should come to 425 - 450 degrees).
  7. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill until the chicken has cooked through, turning once halfway through grilling, about 5 - 6 minutes per side (thickest center should register 165 and thighs should be slightly charred).
  8. Transfer the grilled chicken to a plate, cover with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes.
