looks good

"Very quick. I simplified and just dumped the salsa, juice, and chipotles in a processor. Poured on bone-in skin on thighs. I let it marinade for about 6 hours. With skin, delicious. Without skin, yummy but mild. Would agree that it might be too mild for tacos"

I made a steak and chicken at the same time. The steak took to the maranade a little better than the chicken. However, neither really took up enough flavor to stand up to tacos. The meat was better alone as a mildly marinated meat. It lead me to believe this might be good to try on fish or shrimp. I will keep trying with this one. It's fast and easy. The other thing to consider is they type of salsa used. I used a fresh salsa and that might have had an impact on the strength of the recipe.

Preparing the marinade takes some time but the final recipe is worth the effort.
