Fajita Marinade

We love fajitas here, and since there was so much talk of them on a cooking group I'm in on Facebook, I decided I would make them, now. Good old allrecipes brought me to this recipe, and the rave reviews got me to make it. I used half amount of chicken tenders and half amount of tri tip steak, sliced. The marinade didn't smell like anything when I made it so I was worried I either forgot something in it, or hoped it would turn out. Boy did it turn out. 3 hours of marinating time was fine for this. I was too lazy to grill the meat so I just cooked it in a hot pan with a little oil. Next time I will grill it. Serve with some cooked up bell peppers and onions, sour cream and cilantro wrapped in a tortilla. These were awesome. Everyone ate it and didn't leave much for leftovers. I'm keeping this one.
