This is a good marinade as written, but I took a few of the suggestions from prior reviewers and added a few of my own tweeks. First, I noticed that a few reviewers thought that the water took away from the flavor of the marinade. Basically 'watering' it down. So I added 1/3 cup of orange pop! I know...what the...? Well, I didn't feel like going to the store to find something else more appropriate, like orange juice or the like. I happened to have a bottle of orange pop, so I just added some of that in place of the water. The only other adjustments I made was to add a bit of cumin, I used vegetable oil instead of olive oil and just a couple dashes of liquid smoke instead of 1/2 teaspoon. Liquid smoke is very strong, and I noticed that a lot of people found that even 1/2 tsp was overpowering. Everything else in the recipe I followed exactly. I marinated 2 flank steaks for about 4 hours, and my fajita's came out PERFECT. Thank you for the recipe, as I needed a good starting point, and I think this recipe is it!
