Chipotle & Dark Chocolate Grilling Marinade

Chocolate isn’t just for dessert any longer. This sweet, spicy and tangy marinade recipe taps into the flavors of chocolate, chipotle and balsamic to create layers of dreamy flavor. Marinades are the easiest way to add great flavor to your meats. 



1 cup Coronado Taste of Oils Chipotle Olive Oil
1 1/2 cups Coronado Taste of Oils Dark Chocolate Balsamic
3 cloves garlic
1 small shallot
2 tsp Kosher Salt


Dry Rub
1 Rack of pork ribs
2 tbsp Seasons Chipotle Powder
2 tbsp Seasons Smoked Paprika
1 tbsp Cumin
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp salt (to taste)
2 tsp pepper (to taste)



Combine all marinade ingredients together and emulsify using a food processor.

Save half of the marinade in a separate container for a basting liquid.

Place ribs in an airtight container and pour remaining marinade over, letting it soak the meat for 24 hours in the refrigerator.

In the meantime, mix all dry rub ingredients together.

When meat has finished marinating, remove it from the marinade and blot off any extra liquid, discarding used marinade.

Cover pork with the dry rub, and get ready to grill!
While grilling the pork, use the marinade (what you put to the side initially) by brushing the pork in order to infuse the sweet flavor of the balsamic marinade.
*This recipe can be easily modified to accommodate chicken or steak.
