Cooking with Tequila


Happy Cinco de Mayo! It’s the perfect day to share some of our favorite recipes that use tequila as an ingredient. Tequila adds a wonderful smoky flavor to a dish, marinade or drink. Be sure to use a good quality tequila when cooking. I use the rule of never cooking with something that I wouldn’t drink. Your dish is only as good as the ingredients you choose so be sure to use only 100% agave tequilas.
