Cilantro Lime Marinade

This make a fantastic fajita marinade for chicken and steak. Cilantro Lime marinade is also amazing on grilled skewers. Try this marinade on roasted veggies and they will never be boring again. If you are like me and prefer a little more heat, you can add more red pepper flakes, but that is entirely optional.
