Arizona Cardinals Adobo Sirloin

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Iowahorse

Yes. It's hot. A good steak deserves a good bite! Jalapenos peeps,..smoked..yes some will think it's hot, to me and fellow pepper heads this is just a starter course. If you can't handle the milder sets of peppers, I'd advise you not to try this. I don't want to hear any "It's too hot! Shenanigans) It's not like there is Habaneros, Ghost Peppers or Scotch Bonnets lurking in there. Cook times approx depending on personal taste.

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! :-)
