Tequila Salsa (not for kids!)

Did you see the Fully Loaded Nacho Fries I posted on Sunday? It seems you guys just can’t get enough of them and I don’t blame you! I’ve been thinking about them ever since! This Tequila Salsa was piled high on top of them and I’m sharing the recipe with you today.

Tex-Mex

Tex-Mex food is high up on my list of things I couldn’t live without. Indian and Chinese food would be pretty high up there too, (the list may or may not be exclusively food and drink related…) but Tex-Mex / Mexican is one of my favourite cuisines. When done well, every mouthful feels like a fiesta full of loud music, raucous dancing and happiness!

Just looking at a big bowl of this salsa you’ll see bright yellows, greens, reds, oranges, even purple from the onion. The flavours are both sweet and spicy. But with this recipe, what you don’t see, is the smokey heat of tequila! You can’t think of Mexico without thinking of tequila – this is one salsa that is NOT for kids.

Getting tipsy

Tequila is distilled from roasted agave hearts. When they are roasted the starches in the plants are turned into sugars which become the distinctive alcohol. A good aged tequila sometimes called dark tequila or gold tequila has been barrel aged. Often in old American whisky barrels. This gives it a characteristic smokey flavour which is perfect for the tequila. If you can only get your hands on white or silver tequila, it’s not the end of the world but I’d hold back a splash or two or it might be too harsh.

Now the normal way in which I consume tequila is out of a tiny glass cup, with salt on my hand and a wedge of lime in the other. With that in mind there is a healthy pinch of salt in this recipe and a good squeeze or two of lime for good measure! Remember when I said that Tex-Mex food tasted like there was a party in my mouth! With this tequila salsa the party is just getting started!
