Citrus habanero salsa

Citrus habanero  salsa

This citrus habanero salsa is made with a variety of citrus fruits: oranges, grapefruit, blood orange, mandarins or tangerines, and kumquats. This chunky citrus salsa also has habanero peppers, diced red onion, ground cumin and chopped cilantro. This is a great salsa to make during the colder months when all these yummy citrus fruits are in season. Also, don’t let the idea of using habaneros scare you, most of their heat is in the veins (and the seeds since they’re attached to the veins). If you remove the seeds and veins, and use gloves to do so, the habanero will still be spicy, but significantly less. Habaneros have a delicious flavor that goes great with citrus. I used about 2-3 peppers for this citrus salsa, but you can adjust based on your comfort level with spice. You can also use different chili peppers if you can’t find habaneros. (more…)

Strawberry margarita

Homemade strawberry margaritas made with fresh strawberries, lime juice, sugar or honey, orange liqueur, and tequila.

En Español

This homemade strawberry margarita recipe is made with fresh strawberries, lime juice, sugar or honey, orange liqueur, and tequila. I love a good refreshing margarita, and while a classic simple margarita with fresh lime juice is a great drink, sometimes I feel more like a fruity variation of this delicious cocktail. This strawberry margarita can be prepared and served on the rocks. Or if you prefer frozen strawberry margaritas, simply add additional ice and blend until you have a smooth frozen drink. You can use sugar to sweeten this drink, but sometimes I also like to use honey – it goes so well with strawberries and lime juice. (more…)
