Urban’s Best Fajita Marinade

I published this one back a few years, and hadn’t made it since – I did tonight, with some glorious tri tip and chicken, charro black beans, seasoned rice, and fresh corn tortillas from my fave carniceria, (the one where they speak Spanish, period, and if you’re a gringo, you’d best have your patos en linea. My family went nuts of the meal, and declared it superior to any restaurant in our area, and you know what? They’re right – try it, make it yours, and see if you don’t agree.
