We tried several different mojo recipes and decided to give this one a try. I used it to marinate chicken that we grilled. DH said to was good but liked the others we tried much better. DD didn't like it at all.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the mojo, you will need a large bowl. In a large bowl, pour the sour orange juice or lime juice, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic and sliced onion into the bowl and stir.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium-high for 2 minutes, then when hot, pour olive oil into bowl. Be careful not to get burned, since some of it might splatter out.
  3. Mix the mojo ingredients, then let sit for 30 minutes.
