Default Favorite Fajita Marinade?

I'm not in Texas anymore and have the hankering for GOOD chicken fajitas. What are some good homemade marinade recipes that y'all have? No time to order Ragin Blaze, that will be my next move. Thanks, BigFoot.

You can order the Fiesta fajita seasoning on their website. I Season chicken, beef, or pork with Fiesta & Tonys Charcher's.

By far my favorite. It's great with both beef and chicken. I add extra lime juice and a little extra salt.

I must add: we use the heb homemade 1/2 flour 1/2 corn tortillas. Not all HEBs may carry these but all the ones around me do. They are life changing.

Fiesta beef fajita spice and a little extra garlic powder is all I use. I season the meat and let it sit in a gallon baggie for as long as possible. Preferably 24hrs before cooking. I also trim off the excess sinew and fat.

I soak in pineapple juice overnight and then coat heavily with El Vanado red fajita seasoning.

I mostly use this on beef but have used on chicken also. This recipe is my favorite. I also sometimes will add mango in place of one of the oranges. Another tip would be to make sure your meat is thin. Butterflying the chicken helps a lot in absorbing the flavor through the meat...

4 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1 Jalapeno, Minced
1 Handful Cilantro Leaves, Finely Chopped
tsp Kosher Salt
tsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
tsp Cumin
2 Limes, Juiced
2 Oranges, Juiced
2 tbsp White Vinegar
cup Olive Oil

Mix all ingredients and marinade for 8-24 hours.

I ended up going with the "Killer Fajita Marinade" it smells great, I'll let y'all know how it turns out! I'll end up trying every Marinade posted up before long. I finally found some mesquite chips to cook with since mesquite charcoal or mesquite trees aren't a thing out here. I guess I should put an order in to Cajun Blake as well!

Squeeze a bunch of limes all over the meat.
Pour hot Pace picante sauce over meat.
Let sit for a few hours.
Grill.
