    I found this recipe from Roy Choi of LA and it looked really good...I changed a few things here and there to suit my family's tastes. They're not too fond of really spicy/hot stuff, so I put the jalapenos and cilantro on the side so they could add them if they wanted. I decided to make guac instead of pico de gallo and made a medley of red/yellow/green peppers, red and yellow onions and some garlic as well.


    Let's get started on the marinade, shall we? I used brown sugar instead of white and also added some honey to sweeten the marinade up a bit.

    Juice of 1 orange and 2 limes.

    Screw Bud...I had this in the fridge.

    Used the blender to puree nice and smooth.

    Covered it up and put in the fridge over night.

    I dunno man, I find it best to let mexican people make the carne asada, they really know what they're doing.

    And I don't ever see Sam Adams beers in mexican places.

    Once you get all the ingredients in the bowl, squeeze the juice of half a lime all over it...it adds great flavor AND stops the avocado from turning brown. @Bro

    put limes in the microwave for 20 seconds. softens the membranes so it squeezes as easy as a lemon. :grad:

    I used a hand masher to pound that shit into delicious submission. :c

    [​IMG]

    One mashed up, juice the other half of the lime over the top and let sit at room temp for 1 hr to let those flavors make sweet, sweet love. :yes:
