    Not quite spicey enough for my tastes. I will try it again with more spice and maybe marinate it longer. - 6/19/08

    This was awesome. That said, the Aye Caramba moniker is a bit misleading. For those that like heat, the marinade needs some playing with. I added twice as much red pepper flake and it was tasty but not hot at all. Maybe some chopped habanero or even a couple squirts of sriracha? - 5/13/14

    Very Good
    This was very good. I cut the cyanne back to a teaspoon and it was still a little spicy but I like it that way. I am always looking for rubs and marinade without salt. Thanks - 1/9/09

    We grilled our chicken using this marinade. It came out super juicy, spicy and lots of flavor. I marinated mine for a few hours, cut back on the cilantro, and added about twice as much honey to even out the spices. - 4/24/08
