Chipotle beef/chicken marinade

My family liked but didn't love Mexican food until I brought this marinade into their world. Now they beg me for it. Give it a try. I toned down the heat of the marinade with cocoa powder since sour cream, tomato, and lime juice etc simply did not work. I'm sure there are better ways but this is all I know for now. A little goes a long way with this so use sparingly.
