I didn't have any tequila - so I did without. I also didn't do the jalapenos becasuse my kids don't like hot. Still a great dish. Topped with some monterrey jack cheese. Great flavor!

This was very tasty but it lacked a real kick that I was hoping for in the end.

We marinated this 24 hrs, grilled it last night and it was fabulous. We also topped with some crispy chopped bacon and cheese. Excellent and everyone loved it! Thanks for a keeper!
