2 ts Dried oregano
1/2 ts Cumin seed
2 canned chipotle chilies
1/2 ts Black pepper-or to taste
2 tb Wine vinegar
3 Cloves garlic (1 T)
1/2 ts Salt
This spicy marinade owes its unusual flavor to the chipotle, a smoked
jalapeno chili. Chipotles are usually sold canned in tomato paste. Look
for them at Mexican and Latin American markets. Adobo marinade goes
particularly well with pork.
Juice the oranges and lime. Finely chop chilies 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.
