2 great marinades

Ive used both of these marinades a few times over the past couple of weeks. They are really flavorful and most likely you have the ingredients in your pantry already (well, maybe except the cilantro).

Both of these are perfect to keep in your back pocket for those nights when you want to throw something together fast and easy.

Lime marinade for chicken

Juice of 1 lime
1 tbs honey
2 tbs olive oil
1 small can diced green chili's
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp salt & black pepper

* I like to add extra lime but thats just me

Zesty marinade for beef or chicken

1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tbs chopped cilantro
1-2 tbs chipotle chili sauce (from can)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder

* If you want more spice add a little extra chipotle

Whisk all ingredients together and pour in a Ziploc bag then add your meat. Let marinate in refrigerator for 20-30 min.

I know you wont be disappointed!


  1. Hi Sarah,

    I'm just curious- How much would one batch of the lime marinade serve? I am trying to feed a 4 22-year olds

  2. How many grams does this serve?
