This was outstanding! I didn't have any jalepenos, but I do have pequins so I used those instead, but with the olive oil, it got rid of most of the heat but kept the flavor of the chilies. Even the most tender-tongued of my family loved this recipe. It was even better the next day.
this was so good, very nice change for the menu, a little too much all spice but we will definately make this one again
I wasn't really sure how this was going to turn out when I first mixed up the marinade. It smelled and tasted weird to me. I added in some additional olive oil and also some crushed red pepper to spice it up a bit. I was still pretty hesitant when I pulled the bowl out of the fridge to grill it, but it ended up being really good! It's definitely something I'll make again.
