Description

Barbacoa is a way of cooking meat that originated in the Caribbean. Fun fact, it is actually the term from which the word barbecue is derived. This recipe for Chicken Barbacoa features a spicy tomato sauce in which the chicken is cooked after searing to soak up the rich and savory flavors. Seasoned with cumin, bay leaf, thyme, cloves, and oregano, the barbacoa sauce is full of zesty flavors. The combination of ancho and guajillo chile peppers brings a subtle heat to this dish.
