Yum! I left out the water and bouillon paste and marinated my sirloin steak for about 4 hours. Much better than my local Tex-Mex place!

I used this on chicken and it was great! I had this in the marinade for about 5 hrs. and will shoot for longer next time and maybe add a touch of salt as well. Thanks Kitkat :)
