Caitlin has perfected the guacamole and margarita recipe. We just had to try these out and weren't disappointed! This is a great treat and provides the avocados provide the good fats that we all need to keep our energy up. Try these tonight or next week and let us know what you think!
Taco Tuesday at Home
One of my favorite traditions since moving to LA has been to meet friends for Taco Tuesdays, where many restaurants offer cheap tacos and margaritas - two of my favorite things. Recently I decided to try to take the tradition to my apartment - saving both money and calories, since I'm not tempted by endless baskets of tortilla chips at home! Two of the most important parts of the meal: guacamole and margaritas!
Classic Spicy Guacamole
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 tomato, diced
1/2 jalapeno, diced (I keep the seeds, but discard them if you don't like things too spicy!)
1 lime, juiced
Scoop avocados into a bowl and mash with a fork until mostly smooth. Add onion, tomato, jalapeno and lime juice and mix well. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper and a few shakes of Chipotle Tabasco and mix again. Test for preferred spiciness and adjust if needed.
Spicy Pineapple Coconut Margaritas
1 shot white tequila
1/3 cup pure pineapple coconut juice
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 jalapeno, chopped (again, I like it spicy so I keep the seeds)
Add all ingredients to a shaker or a cocktail glass and mix well. If not using a shaker, muddle jalapeno in the glass before adding other ingredients. Enjoy!
