    I’ m in Canada as well and I used “just add juice” Weber bbq marinade in Mexican Fiesta with 1/2 cup lime juice.

    That’s funny, I am in Brazil. We’re all looking at this recipe, today. There are a ton of fresh marinade recipes online as well as dry.

    I think I might try this dry one from the Betty Crocker website:

    2 teaspoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
    2 teaspoons grated lime peel
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

    I tried the followed from a Lime Chicken recipe on Food Network’s site, though I haven’t cooked it yet so not sure how it turned out!

    Garlic powder 1 tsp
    Onion powder 1/2 tsp
    Cumin 1/8 tsp
    Oregano 1/2 tsp
    Salt 1 tsp
    Pepper 1/2 tsp
    Paprika 1/4 tsp
    Juice of 1 lime

    just a question and not for this recipe specifically but has anyone put the other ingredients like sides or in this situation the base, in the same bag in the freezer and put them in another bag just to make sure its all together? one grab and go. .
