Basic Chipotle Chicken Tacos
Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag; add chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and 1/2 of the beer. Squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, at least 1 hour.Advertisement
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; pour chicken and marinade into the hot oil. Cook and stir, adding the remaining beer, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
Shred chicken in the skillet using 2 forks and serve in corn tortillas.
For a milder taco, cook only the marinated chicken breast, do not cook with chipotles. Dos Equis(R) is my favorite beer to do this with, but I'll use whatever we have at hand without losing too much of the flavor.
