Chipotle Margarita Steak Taco Marinade
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 1 cup of marinade
  • 1 Tbsp. avocado or olive oil
  • 3 chipotle peppers in adobo from can
  • 2 oz. silver tequila
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp. honey or agave
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-2 lbs. steak, thinly sliced, for tacos
  1. Place all the ingredients, except for the steak, into a food processor or blender.
  2. Purée the ingredients until a well-combined marinade forms.
  3. Place the sliced steak in a dish or gallon-sized ziplock bag, then pour the marinade over the steak. Work the marinade into the steak, covering all the pieces, then seal the bag or cover the dish.
  4. Marinade at least an hour in the fridge, or up to a day. 30 minutes before you're ready to cook, take the steak out to set at room temperature.
  5. We grilled the strips of steak over high, direct heat for 1-2 minutes per side.
  6. Use for tacos, quesadillas, burrito bowls, and more!
  7. Cooked steak will stay good covered tightly in the fridge for 2-3 days.
