    I have made this many times in the past for my family and my friends and they all loved it. and they all want me to make more and have asked me for the recipe and I still have to tell them it’s a secret.
    But this taste like it is authentic Mexican marinade for tacos or other stuff.
    Give it a try, I use parsley instead of cilantro because some of my family members don’t like it so it’s a great alternative to cilantro.
    So marinate and grill up be happy and stay healthy.
