Recipe Description

This is the BEST marinade ever for grilling steaks and chicken with!
The 2 optional ingredients I have listed I would not put together so if you decide to use the hot sauce, I would not add the cheese, and vice versa. My honest opinion? It tastes much better with the cheese! ;)
I admit I have made this recipe without the cumin before since I didn’t have any in the house and it still came out great so if you don’t have any , it’s OK.
I also make extra and freeze in mason jars this way we can use for later that week. We literally use this marinade 3-4 times a week in the summer it is THAT good!
You HAVE to try this!
