Made without alcohol. Marinated for two hours. This was pretty good, thanks!

I got an authenic recipe in Mexico and misplaced it and decided to use this one. It was pretty much the same except I remember mine had onions in the marinade with no tequila. So I used this recipe and left off the tequila and added the onion slices or rings and the meat tasted like I remember in Mexico. So I will be using this again with my changes.

What a very delicious dish. I made as posted but cut it in half. We just loved it. It had a burst of heat with the first bite and after that your taste buds get used to the heat. DH added a touch of shredded romaine lettuce and sliced cherry tomatoes to his. I broke my grill out for the year with this recipe. Thanks for getting me back in the mood. And thanks for posting this. :)
