Peach Pumpkin Grilled Chicken Tacos

Picked up some of this awesome salsa made by my pal, Amy Roloff.  Personally, the only thing better than Asian food, or Latino food, is a fusion of both.

I’m telling you, these are some next-level tacos!

Pound the chicken thighs lightly with a meat tenderizer just to flatten the chicken so that it cooks evenly.
