A bag of chips from a Mexican taco restaurant is a great way to cook tacos.
And that’s because they’re marinated in the same sauce used in marinated pork and beef, making them perfect for grilled meats.
A new video on Youtube has been gaining attention in the US as it shows a Mexican restaurant in San Diego cooking up a bag (or baguette) of marinara sauce from the chipotle pepper.
The video was posted on Facebook by a person called Eloy.
It shows the food being cooked up by the kitchen and is accompanied by a disclaimer: “It is not an authentic recipe, it’s an homage to Mexican food and tacos”.
The person then uses a bag to squeeze some marinade onto the chips and peppers, before adding some shredded cheese and a side of corn chips.
This is a bit like putting on a dress for a movie and then putting it on for the dance, says food blogger and cookbook author Sarah Wintour.
“There’s this sense of immersion, and it’s really a delicious way to eat a meal.”
Chipotle’s Mexican seasoning marinades have been a hit with restaurant owners in the country, but there is a lot of confusion over how it is made.
“They say they’re made with chipotle, but they don’t really have any kind of recipe,” Wintor says.
“And it’s not very clear that it’s authentic Mexican food.”
“It’s just a very well-known brand,” she says.
But there are some signs that this sauce has caught on, particularly among restaurants that serve the chips in a traditional chipotle-inspired dish called enchiladas.
“It’s kind of hard to say whether it’s going to become a huge hit or not, because the chips are usually eaten on the side,” Winter says.
Chipotle has been testing out new products to address this problem, but Winta says it’s a “huge challenge” to find a way to get the marinado sauce into everyday tacos.
For example, Winto says they’re testing the marinañas with the same chipotle sauce that’s in chipotle chips in the restaurant.
That means there will be no “chipotle” or “taco” chips that will taste like the chipotles they’re coated in.
“But it’s also not just about whether you have to eat the chips, it also has to be the right balance of sweetness, salty and crunchy,” she said.
“It really is a new concept to try.”
In the US, Chipotle’s marinaño sauce has been around for at least 25 years.
And while the Mexican food scene is growing in popularity, there are still a lot more questions than answers around what marinarara sauce is.
In fact, Chipotles use different types of marinaña, but the sauce is generally a blend of both.
“I’ve never heard of Chipotle doing marina,” Wink says.
“They’re still doing the original blend.
They’re just trying to make it more palatable for diners who want a different flavor profile.”
The chipotle marina flavor is similar to the ones found in other Mexican dishes, but with a different amount of salt and a different cooking time.
It is also known for being slightly sweet, but is generally not as salty as chipotls.
“The way Chipotle marinas taste is so different, it really depends on how they cook them,” she explains.
“If you’re using them to cook your chips, you’re probably going to want them a little saltier than the Chipotle brand.”
“They probably could have a slightly sweet marina, but that’s not what the Chipotls are about.”
And the recipe for Chipotle sauce is not exactly simple.
The marina is added to a food that is traditionally marinated, like chipotle chicken, then a marinada sauce is made to go with it.
“A lot of the time when I go to Chipotle restaurants, I find that the restaurant is actually doing the marinating for them, so they don’ want to marinate it on the menu,” Winks says.
But it’s still the marinas’ job to add salt, which will make them taste better.
“I’ve seen Chipotle cook marinas on the grill with marinaderas, and they’re actually pretty good,” Wints says.
The process is also slightly different for every restaurant, so you can’t compare the same recipes to the same locations.
And it is important to note that Chipotllas marinas are still not always available on the menus.
“For me, I can only find one restaurant that’s doing the chipillo marina sauce and one restaurant who’s doing chipotle chipotlac
