Wonderful flavor! So easy to put the marinade together. I didn't have enought lime juice and substituted some orange juice. About 1/2 lime and 1/2 orange juices. Fantastic! I put this together in the morning and let it marinate all day. We served with black bean and corn salad, warm tortillas and mexican rice. Wonderful meal - thanks for a great, easy recipe!

Delicious! I read the other reviews and decided to cut the marinade by half. I only had a 1 1/4 pound flank steak. The sauce was great! It was my first time cooking with the chipotle pepper. When I first made the marinade, it didn't seem too spicy (so I added the full amt of chipotle in the marinade). It was sweet and right after the sweetness, the spiciness kicked in (I think I was too generous with the smoked jalapeno). All in all, I liked the taste of it, makes me think of spicy bbq sauce, but better. I will definitely be making it again. Since there is lime juice in here, I think it "cooked" the steak a bit, so when I pan fried the flank steak I overcooked it a bit, but the sauce was still wonderful. Next time I will cook less time. Thanks for a great marinade. I can't wait to try this on chicken.

Absolutely delicious! I had large chipotles and added 2 tsp of the adobe sauce. Whewheee!!! Spicy!! This is one of those "great" recipes that will be handed down. Loved the slightly blackened, sweet but spicy crust. We absolutely adored this. It's spicy, but has a kick and sweetness that is just delicious. We'll definitely make this one again, thanks for sharing!
