The other night, I attempted a new taco recipe, courtesy of Pinterest: Chicken tacos w/ grilled peach salsa

It included the following:

For the chicken: grilled chicken, chili powder, lime juice, salt

For the salsa: grilled peaches, red onion, cilantro, balsamic vinegar, salt

For the topping: kale, olive oil, lime juice, salt

Corn tortillas, some olive oil

I basically did the salsa mixture first. Cut the peaches in half, grilled them (on the stove), and then added the rest of the ingredients in a bowl once the peaches were done. I then grilled the chicken mixture while putting the (raw) kale topping together. Then just plunked everything into a little corn tortilla!

I have to say, I was hoping it’d be better but I’d probably make it again. I don’t think I’m a fan of raw kale so either I’d cook it or substitute something else. My peaches also weren’t exactly ripe either.

Either way, it paired well with a Dogfish Head Festina Peche beer. Yum!
