Dry spice rubs are quick and easy flavor enhancers, but marinades have the power to also tenderize your meats adding an unmatched level of flavor and texture. While Baja Seasonings Street Taco and Chili Limón take your basic marinade to new heights, there are a couple of other important ingredients that make a marinade the true workhorse of the meat world. Fats and acids come together to break down the proteins making your meat tender while also coating and marrying all the epic flavors from your seasonings. The fats generally used in marinades are oils while acids can be citrus juices, vinegars, milk, or even beer! Bust open your pantry and fridge and mix together approximately 3 parts oil to 1 part acid, then toss in a couple of tablespoons of Baja Seasonings Street Taco or Chili Limón, and you’re ready to roll! Toss in your favorite cuts of steak or chicken and let it marinate for 6-24 hours for ultimate pitmaster status!

Feeling like this marinade business is too complicated? Baja Seasonings are highly adaptable and are already ready to be added to whatever oil and acid you choose, so get crafty! Are you a seasoning newbie? Then add a little. Crazy for flavor? Then add a lot! You got this!
