Did you know you can add marinade to your meat before you freeze it or even to already frozen meat? Then as your meat thaws it will marinate and tenderize. I learned that from The Occasional Cook. Brilliant because I never remember to marinate it otherwise. I added chicken breasts that were already frozen and returned them to the freezer.
You are to remove 1/4 c. of the marinade to saute your veggies in. I had frozen lime juice in this container and used it for the recipe so I just returned the reserved marinade to this cup and froze it. Then when you are ready to eat simply thaw your meat and marinade and saute, then add peppers and onions and serve on tortillas.
The verdict? A hit! Mr. Steady raved about the flavor and even the boys loved the chicken (even though they picked out the onions and peppers). I happen to usually have these spices on hand (can't imagine life without cumin) so I will keep the recipe and measure out my own spices. But I would certainly recommend this particular packet if you are interested in trying it!
