O.K. Annie, I tried your recipe and all I can say is ZOWIE!!! Great recipe and the marinade worked super. I used jalapenos because that's all I had and found that one jalapeno on each end and one in the middle is simply to hot four my tastes. Could be because I did't remove the seeds and membrane. I'll use a milder pepper next time and do it right. There will be a next time!

Hello, all! Thanks to all the great recipes and tips from the community here at Recipezaar, I think I'm finally getting this whole cooking thing down! FYI: When I review recipes, I take into account that I have to alter recipes so my BF will actually eat it - no mushrooms and no peppers! I realize this alters the taste slightly, but there's not much I can do about it if I don't want him to go on a hunger strike! I also try to use low fat and/or low cal alteratives. Gotta watch that waistline! :) I always try to give a kind, thoughtful review, even if the recipe didn't work out for me. <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/My-3-Chefs%20banners/my3chefs2008Small.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSCParticipationBanner.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
