This is a good fajita marinade for about 1/2 pound of meat. I did add a couple tablespoons of olive oil to tenderize the meat along with a teaspoon of liquid smoke (personal preference). I let this marinate for 8 hours and grilled it over charcoal. I cut up some onion and pepper and sauteed that while the meat was grilling. This was so good with warm flour tortillas and all the fixin's: fresh salsa, guacamole, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, and a dollup of sour cream.

i was in a pinch and had to hurry up because it was so late! i didn't have cumin or cilantro (don't like it much anyway) but had everything else. i bought a sirloin steak - about 3/4" thick, trimmed it well and sliced it thin. sliced up 1/2 a onion and dumped it along with the sliced beef into a plastic storage bag, massaged it well and just let it sit on the counter for about 10 miinutes while i prepared tomatoes, lettuce and tortillas (put on paper plate, covered with very lightly damp paper towel and nuked for 25 seconds.) then i flash fried the beef and onions in very lightly greased non-stick well heated pan and it was done! very good taste! everything from start to finish took maybe 20 minutes! now that's the kind of dinners i like! i didn't have salsa but i put some sliced jalapenos from the jar and a dollop of sour cream in mine. the kids just had lettuce, tomato and bagged mexican blend shredded cheese. thank you very much for sharing this recipe! mucho appreciado!


This was good but needed some tweaking. It didn't make nearly enough for 1 1/2 pounds of meat so I added a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and about a teaspoon of worcestershire and also threw in a little extra tequila and lime juice.
