This fajita marinade rocks. I just came up with this yesterday. I whipped it up last night, let the skirt steak marinade overnight and I'm still savoring the flavor. I used Roasted Garlic Oil for the oil and the garlic. I also tossed the peppers and onions in the oil. **Note** Well I finally tried this recipe with chicken and it turned out great. I recommend that if you use chicken over beef. Make sure you leave the chicken breast whole, marinade it overnight and grill it whole, then slice it into strips. Enjoy.

This does rock, ROV. I used chicken as I am not a big meat eater. My boyfriend enjoyed this very very much. Thanks for a keeper. All the best for the new year!
Over-the-top delicious! Absolutely loved the flavors and will be making again and again. Thank you ROV!
