Altered ingredient amounts. I have been looking for a good fajita marinade for years. My search has stopped here. I only used 1 1/2 limes, my family is not a big fan of the flavour. They were excellent :-) - 08 Oct 2008


Used different ingredients. Okay, don't ask me why, but -- I added a dash (a DASH) of cinnamon for complexity, and one tablespoon of red wine vinegar to bring it all "up and together." Wow. Thanks! - 08 Oct 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. This is a wonderful marinade. I tried several others before I settled on this one. My family loves my chicken and beef marinated in this. I have not used any of the Anise seed. The recipe is good as is. - 08 Oct 2008
