2 T. achiote paste
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. salt
4 4-oz. chicken breasts, boneless, skinless and cut in half

Combine fruit juices with the achiote paste, garlic and salt, and mix well. Toss with the chicken pieces and marinate for 1 hour.

Place a chicken piece in the center of each banana leaf and drizzle with marinade. To close the leaf, fold in the sides, then the top and bottom. Wrap a strip around once and tie.

Summer BBQ Recipe - Southwest Heat

Here's a great dry rub recipe from the Jamison's' Book Smoke and Spice. It's hard to beat when you want some heat! Good on beef (from steak to burgers), on pork chops, and even on trout. Some people like to add a few tablespoons of onion powder or onion salt to this blend.

1/2 cup ground New Mexican red chile (Chimayó Chile Powder)
1/2 cup ground ancho chile
3 tablespoons coarse salt, either kosher or sea salt
3 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican

Mix the spice thoroughly in a bowl. Store covered in a cool, dark pantry.
