      This may be worth moving south the border for... Hey, where's my margarita?

      This is fabulous on chicken. I cut the recipe in half since I'm only cooking for two. I only used 2 chipotle chilis as I was concerned with how spicy they were out of the can. I was quite suprised by how much they mellowed out after cooking. The dish could actually have been spicier. If I cut this in half again, I'll use 2.5-3 chipotles instead of only two. Thank you for posting.

      I used this marinade for just under 2 pounds of boneless chicken breast - had to marinade it for 24 hours because I work nights and DH is hopeless in the kitchen. I grilled the chicken on my indoor grill this morning, and it came out so juicy and flavorful! I basted the chicken with a kosher salt brine halfway through cooking because I tend to like my grilled meats a bit saltier than the marinade made it, but that's just my personal preference. The sweetness of the citrus juices offset the heat of the chipotles nicely so the finished product had a decent kick to it, but wasn't unbearably spicy (which I was quite impressed with, since 5 chipotles plus 1 tbs of adobo seemed like a lot to me). Served it with some Mexican rice, smashed pintos, corn niblets, and fresh corn tortillas. Nice one, Mean Chef!
