Great marinade on chicken. I used Balsamic vinegar for a little extra flavor. We have steak very rarely, so I am looking forward to trying this on a steak.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak ancho chiles in warm water for 30 minutes or until soft; remove from water saving 1/2 cup of liquid; remove stems and seeds and discard; then chop anchos into small pieces.
  2. Combine all remaining ingredients (including chopped anchos) and the reserved 1/2 cup of liquid (from soaking anchos).
  3. Place marinade over steaks (a resealable ziplock bag works nicely) for up to 12 hours (refrigerated).
  4. After marinating, bring steaks to room temperature, remove from marinade, pat dry with paper toweling, and prepare as desired.
  5. Makes about 1 cup of marinade, enough for several steaks.
