Moroccan Spiced Soft Tacos

This recipe comes from my husband Jim who was sweet enough to 
make lunch for us all today.  He made up this recipe after looking at 
a few similar rubs and I have to say that it's packed with delicious 
Moroccan flavor! 

Jim is fantastic on the grill and loves experimenting with spices as
much as I do.  I'll have a lot more grilling recipes from him in the future. 

Moroccan Spice Rub

(printable copy)

1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons ginger, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
8 garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
Mix first 8 ingredients in a bowl and rub on chicken that has been
pounded flat.  Marinate overnight.
Grill until done and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing.

I made my tomatillo-avocado dip to accompany Jim's tacos.
It was fun to cook together....thanks for a great lunch honey!

  9. We visited our kids in Germany about a 10 years ago and went to the Spanish beach for a week near Gibratar. We ended up making a day tour over to Morocco, which included lunch. I was so distracted by the belly dancer who performed the entire meal, I can't remember the food at all. Your tacos look and sound delicious so I'll have to try them to see what Moroccan food taste like. :-)

  10. This is a beautiful spice rub for grilled meat. I think the tacos are a perfect idea. Awesome.
