  1. The recipe cards show 3 cups of Lawry’s Mesquite Marinade with Lime Juice (which I can’t seem to find anywhere). This doesn’t show that – what should I be using? Can I leave the marinade out, or is that a key ingredient in the flavor? If I need it, any ideas for a substitute or how to make it? Thanks!

    1. Angela – great question! I subbed the Italian dressing for the Lawry’s Marinade in the recipe post just for that reason. It was difficult to find in my area as well. The Italian dressing gives it a great flavor! Enjoy!

  2. I just finished making a double batch of this recipe this morning as I had to run out and purchase the garlic. My 17 year old daughter (picky eater) asked if she could have a bite when I finished and ended up eating a bowl of it at 8:30 am! LOL It was wonderful!! Don’t know how well it freezes yet but defineatly a keeper. Thanks for the great recipe.

    1. It freezes wonderfully. I added alittle cream so that it wouldn’t be dried out. Everyone loves it!!! There were arguments about who was going to take the left overs for lunch today!! My daughter asked me to add it to our recipe book.
