    Chef #459270's Note:

    I developed this marinade for fajitas when the local grocery store quite carrying my favorite marinade. The longer you marinade, the better they are! I have never measured my ingredients, I just dump and taste. Ingredient measurements may be changed to suite taste.

      Great marinade! I used a flank steak. Instead of using the foil method for the vegies, I put them in a zip-lock bag with the reserved marinade for about an hour, and then grilled them in a vegie basket. Served in flour tortillas with sour cream and salsa.
