The way to my Dad’s heart has always been through his stomach. My mami learned this early on in her marriage and has kept his belly happy ever since. After 43 years of enjoying delicious plates of my mami’s home cooking my dad expects, looks forward to a marvelous spread for Father’s Day.

Now that I am married I try to continue the tradition of serving the special men in our life delicious plates of home cooked food. And since its Father’s Day I plan to pamper them with an amazing grilled recipe that I know they will love.

When it comes to celebrating Father’s day fancy napkins or champagne are simply not needed. They could care less about brunch or festive cocktails all they want is grilled goodness, any icy cold beer and a few slices of cake. Father’s Day is all about firing up the grill and serving up a hearty meal for the men.

I decide to revamp my favorite chicken marinade using Cacique’s Crema Mexicana Agria. I always have a bottle of Cacique’s Crema in my fridge to drizzle over enchiladas, to make cilantro cream sauce or to use as a base for my creamy soups. I knew with its tangy bite the crema would gently tenderize my chicken while it infused with the spices. I added a touch of cumin and oregano since they are my dad’s favorite flavors and I decided to top my grilled chicken with a fresh salsa that melds perfectly with the spices.

Using Cacique’s Ranchero® Queso Fresco plus a splash of Cacique’s Crema Mexicana Agria I made a vibrant fresh topping to serve over my chicken. Crisp cumber and red onions are tossed with plenty of queso for a simple, but super delicious salsa. This salsa is amazing served over the tangy grilled chicken and works well over a bed of fresh spinach. My dad couldn’t get enough of it.
