I really liked this marinade but it was screaming to be revised in order to deliver authentic Mexican flavor!
So, here's what I did. I added a few tablespoons of tequila and doubled the lime (4 limes instead of two). I also used a mild/medium Mexican chili spice blend instead of regular chili and this seemed to make a big difference. Extra dried oregano as well. And a few dashes of liquid smoke (optional).
Post-alternations, it worked really well and the beef that we marinated this in was tender and had a wonderful flavor with a hint of tequila. Because it was not too spicy, our three year old enjoyed it as well but if you like heat, add more chili. Chipotle would give it a nice smoky flavor but it is a very very hot chili so be take it easy.
Next time, I will cut the soy sauce in half and see how it goes.
