With so many events to celebrate this weekend, from College Graduation to Cinco de Mayo we had to give you some great “adult beverage” recipes.
Ingredients: 7 oz of frozen Corona (pour a 7 oz frozen Corona into ice trays or popsicle molds)
1 1/2 oz tequila
Squeeze of lime juice
Start by pouring a 7 oz bottle of Corona into an ice tray or popsicle mold. Once frozen, dump the frozen blocks or cubes of Corona into the blender. Add 1 1/2 oz of tequila and a squeeze of lime juice. Blend together and garnish with a lime slice. This recipe is a fun refreshing twist on a normal margarita. If you use a 12 oz Corona, double the tequila to 3 oz.
Margarita Ice Pops Recipe
yields 2 cups (16 oz) of batter
1/2 cup lime juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup tequila
3 T. triple sec
3/4 cup water
1) Combine lemon juice and lime juice in a bowl. Add sugar and whisk until completely dissolved.
2) Add tequila, triple sec, and water. Stir until combined.
3) Pour into pop molds or dixie cups. If you are using dixie cups then cut a small square of tin foil for each cup. Secure foil over the top of each cup and puncture with a knife. Insert Popsicle stick into the hole. This will keep the stick from moving, falling, etc. while the pops set up in the freezer.
4) Freeze for at least 6 hours. Serve with a pinch of salt on top and a lime wedge… ¡Salud!
Man Dip – Husband Approved Cheese Dip
16oz block 2% Velveeta
2 – 12.5oz cans white chunk chicken, drained (or two cooked chicken breasts, chopped)
1 package taco seasoning
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 – 14 oz can original Rotel (don’t drain)
8 oz fat free sour cream
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 Tb diced jarred jalapenos
Turn crock pot on high. Cut the Velveeta in to small chunks and place in the crock pot to start melting. Add the rest of the ingredients, stirring to combine. It will take a little while for the cheese to melt and for everything to incorporate. Continue checking and stirring until desired thickness is achieved. *To speed things up, place cubed Velveeta in a microwave safe bowl and microwave before transferring to slow cooker and adding remaining ingredients.
