raine, thanks for posting this recipe. I have most of the ingredients on hand, except for the chipotle seasoning. I might add a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce as a substitute. And obviously I will have to reduce the amount the recipe makes because that is too much sauce for one person!!

That would be an awesome dish for a night of watching movies and just relaxing, or cut into smaller pieces and used as a party appi. Thanks for sharing Raine

Sounds excellent. Here is one of my favorites. I am not sure how much flank steak I use but it is usually about as long as my forarm or longer.

4 Tablespoons Tequila
2 Tablespoons of Orange juice
1 Tablespoon Lime juice
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Pinch of oregano
Pinch of salt

Mix together and marinade over night if possible. Broil or grill. Let rest. Serve on Tortilla with roasted onion, roasted red pepper, possibly sour cream or guacamole. Enjoy.
