      I had a little bit of trouble with this recipe, although everything worked out well in the end. I had no idea what kind or size red chiles to use. I had some dried ancho chiles here, so I used those. They are really fairly large. When I added them to the blender to puree with the lime juice, they really were not a consistency to adhere to the steak, so I had to add more lime juice. I did halve the recipe as well. We grilled these outdoors (first time since fall!) and really enjoyed them. Made for Rookie Tag Game.

      Very good. I tagged this recipe to used some dried chilies and I am glad I did! It was delicious and not as spicy as I expected. We used flank steak and served with salad and tortillas. Thanks for sharing!

      So good! I could not find flank or skirt steak, so I used a New York Strip steak and let it marinate for two days, but t turned out great!
