2 to 3 canned chipotle chiles or to taste
3 cloves garlic (1 tablespoon)
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin seed
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
This spicy marinade owes its unusual flavor to the chipotle, a smoked jalapeno
chile. Chipotles are usually sold canned in tomato paste. Look for them at
Mexican and Latin American markets. Adobo marinade goes particularly well with
Juice the oranges and lime. Finely chop chiles and garlic. Place citrus juices,
chilies, garlic, oregano, cumin, black pepper, vinegar and salt in blender and
puree until smooth.
Makes enough marinade for 1 1/2 to 2 pounds meat or chicken.
