chipotle marinade

This recipe has totally got me dreaming of summer time and “cookouts” as they call it here in the South.  Out west we said BBQ but here that is the type of meat not the event.  It is so funny how different parts of the country have their own way of talking, huh?!  Let me tell you though, anyway you say it this marinade is the BEST for when you are ready to use the grill!  We used it for tacos and some quesidillas and salad a couple nights later.  I am going to be using this recipe a lot this summer, I am sure of it!   Tacos, Burrito Bowls, Salads, Quesidillas…mmmm.  Be sure to make some Pico de Gallo and guacamole to go with it!  Seriously YUM!

In other cooking news…last weekend I helped a couple of cute boys ask girls to prom using  giant cookies.  It was so fun! I shared how they did it here.   The finished product turned out so cute!

    Hi Sterzer girls….I use your recipes all the time – they are fantastic! Please give your mom a hug from me….we used to sing together many years ago back in Scottsdale 5th ward.

    For the Chipotle Marinade how many times do I double – triple – it for 6 lbs of chicken? Trying it for the first time tomorrow for our family dinner!

    Love, Janet
