That is strange because Mojo is very Citrus based. Here is a homemade recipe for it (with some adjustments)
4 garlic cloves, minced ( I use minced from jar)
1 jalapeno, minced (Used crushed red peppers instead 1 ½ tsp)
1 large handful fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped (used 1 tblsp Parsley)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper)
2 limes, juiced (used one of the store bought lime juice limes, around ½ cup)
1 orange, juiced (used store bought OJ, around ½ cup)
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
¼ cup bitter orange
½ cup red onion chopped
Finely chop and mix together the garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Add the lime juice, orange juice, vinegar, and oil. Shake it up really well to combine. Use as a marinade for chicken or beef or as a table condiment.
Yield: approximately 1 1/4 cups
