Did we forget to mention that Quincoces also has a line of meat marinades? Skinny Latina Million Dollar Marinade is available at Fresh Market and tomorrow, September 21, at 11 a.m., you'll be able to meet the Latina beauty and sample her marinade with bites of skirt steak at the Coconut Grove location. If there's a chance in hell of her marinade holding the secret to her good looks and brains, we're buying a case of it!
