|Mexican Smoked Chili Marinade|
Combine the orange juice and lime juice in a small saucepan and boil until reduced to 1/2 cup.
Place reduced juice and remaining ingredients in a blender and puree to a smooth paste. I strongly recommend that you DO NOT take a whiff of this stuff. It is POWERFUL!
Spread paste on the meat to be marinated. Marinate seafood for 2 hours, poultry for 4 to 6 hours, and meat overnight, turning once or twice.
Makes 1 cup, enough to marinade 1.5 to 2 lbs seafood, poultry or meat. I used turkey legs (very Mexican) and it was great.
He recommends using canned chipotle chilies which usually come canned with tomato paste. [Actually, it's adobo sauce, which is more of a vinegar and tomato based pickling treatment - mb]. You can use dried chilies but you'll have to soften them in hot water and use 2 Tbl of tomato paste.
