    • Seared Scallop Tequila Shooters

      Tequila factor: 4 tablespoons

      This fiesta-starting appetizer puts tequila in its rightful place: the shot glass. Together with a mango puree, the liquor infuses mango and scallop skewers with its trademark tang.

    • Pounded Almond Chicken with Mushroom-Tequila Sauce

      Tequila factor: 1/3 cup

      Meaty mushrooms and tequila combine with onion and thyme for a savory sauce you’ll want to use again and again. To take this tequila recipe over the top, we added a rich almond crust, creating an irresistible combination of texture and flavor.

    • Queso Fundido Mexican Pizza

      Tequila factor: 2 tablespoons

      Don't bother choosing between pizza and Mexican -- in our world, you can have the best of both. Our fresh fundido pizza features crumbly Chihuahua cheese and creamy avocados sprinkled on tequila-zested chorizo.

    • Grilled Drunken Shrimp and Scallop Skewers

      Tequila Factor: 1/4 cup

      A double-dose of tequila is just what you need to perk up your summer BBQ. We created a tequila-lime marinade that doubles as a salad dressing by blending tequila with olive oil and herbs. Drizzle it over crunchy jicama slaw, and brush it on shrimp for a crisp, flavorful finish.

    • Fish Tacos with Peppers

      Tequila factor: 1/4 cup

      For tacos that pack a punch, look no further. A 30-minute lime-tequila marinade is enough to infuse flaky halibut with a powerhouse of tangy flavor. Top off these fresh fish tacos with cilantro and mango slices.

    • Chile-Garlic Mushrooms (Champinones al Ajillo)

      Tequila factor: 1/3 cup

      If garlic is your go-to flavor, you'll fall head over heels for this flavor-packed dish. Simmered in chicken broth and gold tequila, cremini mushrooms, Serrano chiles, and 12 (count 'em) cloves of garlic become a melt-in-your mouth blend that's spicy, tangy, and a little sweet.

    • Tequila-Marinated Chicken Thighs

      Tequila factor: 1/4 cup

      Tequila adds as much flavor to your chicken dinner as it does to your margarita. The bold agave flavor brings together a blend of citrus juices, chipotle peppers, and garlic. It’s just the zesty marinade your grilled chicken deserves.

    • Tequila Shrimp Nachos

      Tequila Factor: 4 tablespoons

      We've never met a plate of nachos we didn't like. Start yours with tortilla chips, and pile on cumin-spiced shrimp, queso fresco, and colorful heirloom tomatoes. A luscious OJ-tequila marinade gives the shrimp their zing.

    • Pan-Seared Halibut with Chile-Garlic Butter

      Tequila factor: 1 teaspoon

      A little tequila goes a long way in this light fish recipe. The flavorful liquor adds bold taste to a decadent butter mixture, perfect for spreading on seared halibut. We used store-bought butter and added a swirl of tequila and lime. Chile peppers create a perfect balance of acidic and spicy flavors.

      Tequila-Honey-Lime Marinated Drumsticks

      Tequila Factor: 1/2 cup

      Warning: Sharing these chicken drumsticks might be impossible. The citrus notes in tequila fit right in alongside honey and lime for a classic tequila-lime marinade that gets even better on the grill.

      Pibil-Style Pork Ribs

      Tequila factor: 2 tablespoons

      From start to finish, the authentic preparation of this tequila recipe makes all the difference. A blend of nine home-ground spices starts things off with a bang. Then, you'll slow-cook the seasoned pork ribs in banana leaves for subtly sweet flavor and fall-off-the-bone texture.

    • 12 of 13

      Honey-Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

      Tequila factor: 1/4 cup

      Try this homemade barbecue sauce the next time you make ribs. A slow simmer of bold flavors like oaky anejo tequila and chipotle chile peppers give the barbecue sauce a south-of-the-border kick, while honey and onions bring out the sweet side.
