Very good! The flavor was great and really present throughout the meat. I did let it marinate for a few hours. I will use this recipe again, thank you. :)

We loved this. I left out the cilantro (not a fan) and used cayenne instead of the pepper. I marinated for about two hours then cooked on the grill. Super!
