Ancho Chile Marinade for Meat Ala Chipotle

READY IN: 1hr 8mins
Recipe by Miss Erin C.

This is a recipe from a great "gourmet" taco joint called Chipotle. They have 2 things, Tacos and Burritos. This place it totally crave-worthy! If you ever get a chance, try their Carnitas soft tacos. So good!

I love the Chipolte restaurant so I can't wait to try this recipe. I think adding some garlic would be great too! Thanks for this one!
