Best Ever Marinade for any chicken or beef tacos; meat enchilada, etc.

Catching up on some blogging.

I assure you: the title says it all. It really is the best Mexican marinade for your chicken or beef tacos or simply just a marinade for your lunch or dinner meats!

Marinated grilled doves.


2 lbs meat of your choice (pork, bird/fowl, beef, etc...) 
½ onion – chopped
½ bunch cilantro – chopped
4 cloves garlic – crushed and minced
1 lime zested and juiced
¼ cup vinegar
½ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
½ cup olive oil
1 T liquid smoke (optional)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp cayenne pepper

Throw everything (except the meat) in a medium glass or metal bowl/container. Mix thoroughly until well combined. Pour over meat resting in another large bowl. Marinate for 3 to 6 hours or more.

Turn on the left or right and center burner of your grill. Either way, make sure one side is not turned on. Let it preheat until it reaches 500° F. Place the marinated meats on the side NOT turned on. Cover your grill and cook your meats. Ready to eat when meat reaches 160-165° F.
