Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Mango and lime will want a light, acidic white like Soave.

Beer Pairings

Hopped with complex malt character and caramelization of malts, a Mäzen Octoberfest complements spicy Mexican dishes.

TK Table Talk:

Jicama (hee-kuh-muh) has two aliases: Mexican Turnip and Mexican Yam Bean. What would your alias be?

What To Do:

1. Chicken may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Poach Chicken: Massage chickenwith 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Add to a medium saucepan. Cover with cold water by 1-inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Immediately reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat and cover. Let stand until the chicken is cooked through (about 12 minutes). Reserve 2 tablespoons of cooking liquid and remove chicken to a cutting board to cool slightly.

3. Make Jicama-Mango Salad: Chop mango and cilantro (set aside a few leaves for garnish). In a medium bowl, stir together mango, jicama, cilantro, lime juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.

4. Chop the chipotle peppers.

5. Shred Chicken: Using two forks, shred the chicken. Combine the chicken, garlic, chipotle peppers, reserved cooking liquid and 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. (If anyone is sensitive to spice, set aside some chicken before stirring in the chipotle peppers.)

6. Char Tortillas: Heat tortillas by placing directly over a gas burner or under a broiler until blackened in places on both sides. PLEASE don’t skip this step, you’ll be missing out on big flavor.

To Serve: Divide chicken evenly between tortillas. Top with jicama-mango salad.

Pro Tip:

Coarsely chop the jicama-mango salad for a sweet and crunchy salsa to serve with chips.
Spice it Up!: Make the chicken even spicier with a few splashes of your favorite hot sauce.
