Marinade is awesome, however I don't have enough forethought to marinate something for hours, so I let it sit in fridge for about 15min while my oven preheated and I was making the dressing. I baked it for 15min on 350? and it came out perfectly and super moist, (just use slotted spoon to scoop out). I also didn't do the lime zest because A) I don't have a zest thingy, and B) there's honestly enough lime juice to go around without it. I
I found some adobo paste(?) But I didn't really care for it and only ended up using a 1/2 tsp into the dressing. Also instead of chili powder, I used chipotle chili powder because it just went better with this recipe. I'm not sure why so many are complaining about the spice level--use common sense and add the right amount of chili powder that's comfortable for YOU. I had to tone it by half because my kid can't handle spicy. Oh! And I also added about a tablespoon of honey to the dressing because it really needed it. (and if you don't love lime, squeeze one less halve into it and should be fine)
My hubby and son didn't like the original dressing flavor so much, so I added some Head Country BBQ sauce to it, and they both LOVED it. I like the original, but the BBQ was actually good, too, maybe to change it up a little.
Edit: Oh, I forgot to mention in my picture, I added sweet 'n' spicy corn for a topping..completely optional, though. I just love it so much I find excuses to eat it.
