Five Tequila Inspired Recipes

One thing I always really like to do in a series is to look for inspiration from around the internet. It gives me an opportunity to get in sync with the going ons of the thing I am covering AND we get to feature bloggers that I like and admire. We are just getting going in our Margarita series and I thought it would be fun to look further into one of the stars of the margarita… TEQUILA! So, today, we feature five tequila inspired recipes from my fellow food bloggers! Enjoy!

Grilled Mahi Mahi With Papaya-Tequila Sauce from Food Fidelity

Marwin at Food Fidelity mashes up a love of music and food on his blog. He definitely has the food to perfection with this Mahi Mahi dish. The sauce adds a vibrant pop to the fish and this is definitely a winner. I just got back from a fishing trip of my own, so I am on a bit of a fish kick, although our local fare is Walleye. Maybe I need get down to our fish market and pick up some Mahi Mahi to make this happen. Don’t worry, I already have the tequila. 🙂

La Noche Loca Cocktail From 2 Cookin Mamas

I would like to say that I live La Vide Loca, but I cannot lie. I am sitting here at 8:55 pm and contemplating bedtime. I can, however, pretend by having a La Noche Loca Cocktail that has been cooked up from Linda and Christina’s blog. This mother-daughter team have mixed up a storm with this drink. It is almost like a mash-up of a mojito and a margarita that crashed into a mango. This is a fruit-filled, tropical cocktail that is sure to delight your taste buds and give anybody a glimpse of the wild side.

Grilled Tequila and Lime Fish Tacos from My Kitchen Love 

Tequila and Tacos. Two words that soothe my soul. Samantha puts them together in this delicious Grilled Tequila and Lime Fish Taco recipe. Fish tacos always bring me back to San Diego (one of my happy places) and we do get them up here in the tundra of Fargo, ND… so I can get a taste here and there. OR, I can just make my own! Doesn’t the avocado sauce on top look divine? Check this recipe out!

Salted Margarita Cupcakes from 4 Sons R Us

Four sons? I would need these cupcakes and a side of tequila on top of that. HA! We are in the middle of our Margarita series and this dessert is a fun way to express margarita flavors. I included them, as I thought Meaghan did a fabulous job of incorporating the full margarita ingredient list into these cupcakes and they look so darn cute.

Mandarin Orange Tequila Smash from OMGfood

This is a pretty cocktail and it has plenty of great flavors. Besides the flavors from the title, it also uses a Ginger Liqueur. I love ginger and it probably ends up in something I eat or drink just about every day of the week. I haven’t done it yet, but I have a free keg in my keezer (freezer that holds kegs… usually of beer) right now and it would seem like an easy thing to get some ginger ale up in that mother. THIS DRINK, however, has lots of good tastes going. Marissa might call herself a loud Greek, but if she is mixing this up, she is invited over anytime.
