If you’re looking to make something other than burgers and dogs at your holiday BBQ, go for a Mexican themed meal. Use this easy marinade on beef or chicken, whip up some fresh guac and pico de gallo and you’re all set!
- ½ cup olive oil
- ¼ cup vinegar
- 1/3 cup lime juice
- ½ chopped onion
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp oregano
- ½ tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- ¼ tsp cumin
- ½ tbsp paprika
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 large onion, sliced.
- 2 lbs skirt steak, chicken, pork tenderloin
- large plastic Ziploc bags
-Mix all ingredients together.
-Add beer to taste, you don’t need the whole can, just to dilute and increase amount of marinade.
-Put meat in Ziploc bags and add marinade.
-Put in refrigerator overnight.
-Cook on highest heat in pan, or even better on the grill.
Guacamole (yes, it’s this easy)
Avocadoes, Diced tomatoes, finely diced onions, salt, pepper, garlic powder, a little lime.
– Cut avocadoes in half, remove pit. While still in the skin, cut up and down across the top. Scoop from the skin with a spook and into a bowl.
– Add tomaotes and onions.
– Season to taste.
You’ll also need tortillas, chips, and beer (obviously). I really like shredded lettuce and grilled veggies with my fajitas too!
