  • I used all the ingredients more or less my own way. This was a great foundation for one of my all time Mexican dishes. I will make this over and over and over again.

    Thank you!

  • I wound up mixing all of the ingredients for the marinade together and then baked it on 300 for about 3 hours. I let it cool and then pulled it apart with two forks for nachos! YUMMY! - 8/13/09

    Its optional I use it because it helps tenderize and gives a nice flavor but I have made it without and its just as good
