Instead of using wax paper to line your tortilla press, find the thinnest plastic bags you can get your hands on. I love the classic grocery store “thank you” bags, as they almost never stick.
Don’t over blend your tomatillo salsa—the key to a great salsa is leaving some texture. Speaking of great salsa, you will likely have plenty of extra salsa after making your tacos but it’s delicious on just about anything!
I love storing it in my refrigerator, ready to go for burgers, chips, or just having it on my table for just about any meal. If you're not a big fan of spice, remove and discard the jalapeños’ seeds. If you’re really not a fan of spice, you can leave out the jalapeños altogether!
If I had to name one thing that makes this recipe special (besides the fresh, local corn masa), it would have to be the marinade: it really gives these tacos a unique punch that can’t be skipped! Make sure to start marinating your chicken the night before so it has plenty of time to soak up all of the marinade’s complex flavors.
