Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 c. vegetable oil
3 T. fresh lime juice
2 T. fresh orange juice
3 T. tequila
2 T. triple sec
1 large jalapeno, seeded and minced
1 1/2 t grated lime zest
1 T. brown sugar
1/2 t. coarse salt
Pinch of pepper


Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Let stand 15 minutes (can be made the day before) and refrigerate. Marinate poultry 1 - 3 hours. Place on grill.

Note: Recipe says that the reserved marinade can be brought to a boil, and boiled for 1 minute, to serve as a glaze over the meat. I think it is safer to make a second batch of the marinade just for the glaze.
