This recipe looked scrumptious to a chile-loving gal like me. However, it as just way too HOT for my taste (and I love really hot and spicy foods). My husband and I both felt like the marinade was so hot that we could barely taste the steaks underneath. However, I will try it next time with milder diced green chiles because I still think this recipe has real potential. Perhaps it was just taste preference on our parts, but I can usually eat VERY spicy foods...this dish is definitely not for the faint of heart! :-)
just to give everyone a heads up .. chipotles are smoked jalapenos and there are very hot ! i make my own salsa and use different kinds of chilies for various things .. but i would never consider using an entire can for 2#s of meat .. thats too much heat !!! im going to use the recipie tonight for steaks and i promise with one MAYBE two chipotles in the marinade ! the idea for the marinade sounds wonderful tho. will get back with a full report !
