I searched thru many marinades. They were either too sweet or not hot enough for my taste. I have not tried this with Beef as I do not eat red meat. It is a staple chicken dish and in the summer we grill pork.All measurements are approx. use little or morer of whatever to make it your own

I like this marinate and have made it four or five times with pork. I had to cut back by half on the jalapenos because it was too hot. And I like it really hot. Thanks for posting it.
