    1                    flank steak
    6                    ancho chiles -- seeded and deveined
    1      tablespoon    oregano
    1      tablespoon    garlic -- minced
    2                    chipotle peppers in adobe sauce -- minced
 
 Soak the ancho chiles in hot water to soften, then puree in a blender along with
the chipotle chiles adding soaking liquid as needed.  Strain and re turn to the
blender.  Add the oregano and garlic and puree.  
 Pour the marinade over the steak and marinde overnight.  Grill it as desired but
be careful, if you over-cook it, it will get like shoe-leather.  Let rest for
10-15 minutes then slice thinly downward at a 45-degree angle across the grain.
 Serve with taco shells or tortilla wrapers and any desired toppings.
 
 NOTE: You can use any dried chiles you like depending on your taste.  Chipotles
and be increased or decreased as desired.
