recipe one: bust.

not pleased with this recipe.  what was Emeril thinking?  

OK, so I won't be too harsh BUT i hate it when i spend a good hour preparing for a meal with high hopes and then it turns out to be nothing close to my expectations.

it has tequila. how could it be that bad? 

i came to the solution that maybe if i marinated it more then 45 minutes it would of been delish.  that's what emeril said to do, only 45 minutes. i should of known better.  Marinading it OVERNIGHT would of made a world of difference.  

the chipotle adobe sauce was wonderful.  i put more chipotle peppers in then it called for.  that was the only flavaful part of this meal. unfortunately.

yes i will try it again. maybe for company. and maybe overnight the marinade.  it's a ton of prep work for a meal during the weak, which defeats the purpose of my challenge.

so the hunt continues for a new recipe.

That's too bad, I know how you feel though, you get excited and then, ehhh. :( Hopefully the next will be better.

Isn't that meat a little pink? ;)
