Chipotle Pepper Marinade

Hi gang –

Quick and dirty video for a quick and dirty marinade.  I’ve used this on chicken and pork, in both the crockpot and in the oven (after an overnight marindae).  Pardon the random ourbursts, Marc Broussard will do that to a guy.

Recipe will marinate roughly 2 lbs of meat if not more.


  • 1 small can (7oz) of chilpotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 C tomato sauce
  • 1/2 C water
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • handful of fresh cilantro (not sure about dry)
  • 1 jalepeno, rougly chopped if at all.
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 TBSP lime juice

Grind it all in the food processor or blender.

For Stove:

Marinate the meat for 4 hours if you can handle it.  I like to sear the meat in a stainless steel pan or cast iron skillet (2 min each side) and then cover with remaining sauce and throw into a 425 degree oven to finish
For Crockpot:

Throw everything into the crockpot, I’ve cooked overnight for 6 hours or so. After removing the meats, I’ve put the remaining liquid into a skillet and reduced to make a sauce for my meals.  Kick ass.

Happy eating –
