     Margarita Recipes, Bet You’ve Never Tried!!

     Skin Care Mother’s Day Specials and Skin Care Update

     Breast Augmentation Special with Free Juvederm filler or Botox, LAST MONTH!

     EXTRA! Tom Cruise and Comedian James Corden in Lion King, REALLY:


      Mused after pulling together margarita recipes you’ve never had:

    Yuzu Margarita: 2 parts tequila, 1 part yuzu (Asian citrus), 1-part fresh lime and 1 part agave nectar.

    Tajin Margarita: 1 part tequila, 1-part fresh lime, ½ part orange liquor, ½ part agave, and 1/8 tsp Tijain seasoning (chilis, lime and salt)

    Kroger Margarita: (both sold at Kroger) 2 parts cucumber/jalapeno tequila and 2 parts Tres Agaves Margarita mix (only 68 calories in this mix)



    Mexican food dates back 2,000 years with roots in the Aztec and Mayan cultures.  Maize (corn), beans, squash, and chilis were grown.  These nutrient dense foods provided their food including maize and beans for all the protein they needed.

    Choosing nutrient, plant-forward ingredients such as vegetables beans, and whole grains.

    Veggies:  To the more common corn, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, onion, avocado, and squash add tomatillo, jicama, chayote, cactus and poblano chilis.

    Beans:  Black and pinto provide dietary fiber and protein.  Refried beans not prepared in lard also can be nutritious.

    Whole Grains:  Select corn tortillas over flour or use whole grain (I use them for sandwiches).  Brown rice over white.

    Top with Flavor:  Kick up the flavor with salsa, guacamole, lime juice, onions and hot sauce.


    (Did You Know?   Mexican food is the most popular ethnic cuisine in the U.S.)

     Try something new:

    Pozole: Previously I gave you a recipe for this soup with hominy, chicken or pork vegetables and chilis.

    Mole:  A flavorful sauce containing chilis, spices, fruits, nuts and even chocolate.

    Tamales:  Mexican sandwich consisting of corn meal dough filled with sweet or savory wrapped in banana leaves or corn husks and steamed.

    Ceviche:  Another recipe I’ve shared where seafood is “cooked” by marinating in lime juice.  Chilies, cilantro, tomatoes, and avocado added makes it delicious.
