Molasses adds a rich character to this tropical marinade. Try it with chicken, pork or shrimp.

  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup frozen pineapple juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Preparation

  • Ready In

  1. Combine vinegar, pineapple juice concentrate, molasses, chipotles, oil and salt in a small bowl. Use 1/2 cup to marinate chicken, pork or shrimp. Reserve remaining marinade for basting.
  • Note: Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful sauce. Look for the small cans with the Mexican foods in large supermarkets. Once opened, they'll keep up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer. You can also find them dried with other chiles or at melissas.com and ground in the spice section of many supermarkets.

This was a great marinade! I made it for some friends and everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I like things a little spicier so next time I will add more chipotle peppers a less pineapple concentrate. I will definitely use this often.
