  • 1 cup of cilantro packed
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 3 limes zested and juiced
  • 1 large orange zested and peeled
  • 1-2 jalapenos seeded
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp honey


  • Throw all of these ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. The recipe will yield about 2 cups. Use a ½ cup to marinate protein, and use the rest as a sauce to drizzle on burrito bowls, tacos, and pretty much everything. 
  • Marinate the meat for at least 30 minutes before cooking. 
  • Food safety warning: never use a marinade or sauce that touched raw meat. Separate your marinade first and reserve the rest as a sauce.
