    I do a teaspoon each of granulated garlic and ancho chili powder, a half
    teaspoon of cumin, the juice of a lime, and a half teaspoon of salt.

    I like this, nice and simple. When do you put this rub on the chicken?
    Immediately before cooking or let it sit a little bit? Thanks

    The first recipe I ever used for fajitas said something like "marinate
    for up to 30 minutes", and so that's generally what I do. I toss the
    chicken strips (or steak strips) and spices together, let it sit in the
    fridge for a half hour while I do other things, then fry it up on a
    pretty high heat.

    I'll be grilling everything. That is I will be grilling whole chicken
    breasts. Slice after cooking I've never mastered chasing slices of meat
    around the grill. I have a cast iron insert for the grill that is sort of
    like a large cake pan. I'll do a hot stir fry on the onions and peppers so
    that they get toasty brown around the edges. Keeps the heat out of the
    kitchen. Not that I am complaining about the heat. It is the first heat
    and sunshine we have had this year. All of my garden plants are stunted and
    yellowed from cold weather and lack of sun. Thanks for the input.

    Thanks, this was perfect. I didn't have ancho chili powder, but did have
    Hatch green chili powder. I did slice the breasts into 4 strips and tossed
    them in the rub and let sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes and then
    threaded them on skewers. The strips turned out very tender, juicy and
    tasty. Thanks again. It's a keeper.

    Oh, cool, I'm glad.

    Ooh. Did you make that, or get it at Penzey's, or...?

    Sure, and sounds delicious.

    My daughter was in NM for over a year and supplied me with it. (apparently
    a regular grocery store item -- sigh) I have Hatch green and red chili
    powder as well as jalapeņo. I will miss it when it is gone.
