These are so quick and tasty. You can use strips of boneless chicken breast instead of the beef. Feel free to double the marinade. The flavor is so great for such a short marination time. You can can do them up ahead of time and have the meat sit longer if you wish.

The family had that look like when you throw a handful of crumbs at a bunch of pigeons. They all swoop into a pile knocking each other over to get there first and fight for the best spot.

I made these for a girls night and they got rave reviews. I doubled the marinade for 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and left them in my fridge overnight. I also grilled the chicken instead of cooking it in a pan. So good, did not even need the tortillas. Will definitely make again.

We are wanna-be-Mexicans when it comes to food. We pick our vacation spots based on proximity to large migrant farmer populations and their authentic restaurants. We absolutely love this marrinade. Tonight we grilled the chicken breast whole on the charcoal grill until nearly done but not over cooked, then threw it in with the onions and peppers in the cast iron skillet to finish off the last 5-10 degrees and it was FANTASTIC! Cast iron goes to the table to keep everything warm while you eat!!!
