"This awesome marinade for chicken, chicken wings or flank steak has a taste of Mexico with a hint of Texas. It's definitely a must for the grill!"

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and cayenne pepper into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the liquid smoke, lime juice, tequila, vegetable oil, and cilantro until evenly blended.
  2. To use the marinade, pour into a resealable plastic bag, and add 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of meat. Squeeze out the excess air, seal, and marinate in the refrigerator 4 to 6 hours before cooking as desired. Grilling over charcoal is best, but a gas grill will do fine as well.

All we could taste was the smoke. Next time I think I will add real garlic and real onion and leave the smoke out.

I wasn't going to be grilling my chicken, so I didn't use the liquid smoke, but other than that followed exactly; I marinaded the chicken overnight then used it to make jalapeno chicken. Awesome!

I didn't have any onion powder and used less garlic powder, cayenne pepper and no liquid smoke. I marinated the chicken breasts overnight and they turned out really well! We could taste all of ...

I made this minus the liquid smoke as I did not have any and used fresh garlic vs. the powder. I used it on a pork tenderloin and it was very good. Thank you for the recipe!

What a great marinade! I used a Mesquite flavored liquid smoke, and cut the lime down a little, as I'm not a huge fan. Also omitted the cilantro for the same reason. We used it for both beef ...
