Yield: Yields about 2-1/2 cups, enough to marinate 2-1/2 lb. food
Mayonnaise is the perfect base for a marinade. Here, it takes the place of oil and keeps the marinade ingredients suspended. The lime juice cuts through the richness of the smoky chipotle marinade, and the beer adds depth of flavor. Use for steak, pork, chicken, or fish (especially tuna or halibut steaks).
Make Ahead Tips
The marinade will keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
For a complete south-of-the-border meal, serve with our Mexican Grilled Corn on the Cob.

LOVE this recipe! It is definitely spicy, but we love spicy so perfect for us.
I used boneless skinless chicken breasts, marinated for ~9-10 hours (from breakfast until I cooked dinner), and baked in the oven in a glass Pyrex dish for ~30-ish minutes - since another reviewer said the flavor disappeared/burned otherwise - and it turned out delicious! Served with rice and elotes (grilled Mexican street corn). Spoon some extra sauce on your plate to mix with the rice :)
This has become a regular staple for summer dinners at our lakehouse, since it is so easy to throw in the marinade in the morning and then just stick in the oven - the easier dinner prep is, the better! My teenage niece and nephew have specifically requested for me to make this for our Labor Day weekend at the lake, and if they request it, that means it's pretty darn good!
Good flavor, but I really couldn't tasted it on the cooked chicken. Don't recommend BBQ because the marinade burns. Leftover mayo is good as a sandwich spread.
This is easy and outstanding and has so many uses. I love spicy but I know some don't. Make sure you know, this is spicy! Leftovers would be great in tacos so make extras!
The recipe was fast and easy. Just the right amount of kick to this recipe. We used boneless skinless chicken breast. We finished the beer while the chicken marinated! Served it with black beans, corn and rice.
