A bit spicy but not HOT. Very simple to make and a big hit. Great for when you have a bunch of friends coming for dinner.

Wow! The steak was awesome but the sauce is definately the star! I will keep it on hand for dipping taquitos and anything else i can think of! Will definately make again! You could even use the sauce for chicken. Thanks for a GREAT recipe!

This is an awesome recipe!!! I threw a "Fiesta" for my GF's BDay this past weekend. This dish was a hit, everyone loved it. The marinade was great, I did it over nite also using Merlot & 2 hefty TBL of the minced Chipotles in Adobo. The dipping sauce is Fantastic as well, super tastey with just a lil' bit of heat at the end. We served it Taco Bar style, with a large platter of taco "fixin's". Along with Spanish style rice, beans, and lots & lots of Mojito's! This is a definate keeper!

I did this for a birthday party for 20 that I did with a Southwestern theme--this was definitely my favorite. The marinate made the beef amazing. The sauce just made it so unbelievable. Love it!!! Everyone else did to!!! You must make this. I made it with a mixture of corn, potatoes, black beans etc from food network for a whole Southwestern theme. Thanks for this great recipe.
