    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.

    Lime Chipotle Dipping Sauce


    1. 1
      Marinade flank steak for 4 hours or overnight.
    2. 2
      Remove from marinade and pat dry.
    3. 3
      Grill on BBQ until just medium rare.
    4. 4
      Grill time will depend on the size of flank steak (s) (DO NOT OVERCOOK THE FLANK STEAK).
    5. 5
      Cover loosely with aluminum foil for 7-10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Slice the meat against the grain in about 1/4 inch thick slices or as thin as you can reasonably get.
    7. 7
      (It is VERY important to slice the meat against the grain or it will be tough.) At last minute pour some of the dipping sauce over the cut up flank steak and serve.
    8. 8
      Put the left over dipping sauce on the table for everyone to enjoy.
    9. 9
      Goes great with grilled corn on the cob and white sticky rice.
    10. 10
      try pouring a little of the dipping sauce on the rice.

      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.
