Tex-Mex food sometimes gets a bad rap for being loaded with tons of calories and cheese. But this dish isn’t like that. It’s packed with wonderful fresh Mexican flavors in a light and tasty dish. TequilaLimeChckHnyDrz_hd
Tequila is probably the most well-known Mexican liquor, but most people don’t realize it’s great for cooking and making desserts. You can use it like you would any wine or liquor. 

A combination of tequila and lime works wonderfully as a marinade for chicken, fish, shrimp or beef. I start with those two basic ingredients and go from there. Adding fresh herbs and a little spice gives it a ton of flavor without any fat.

I give it a special twist at the end with my Honey Drizzle. This is perfect over salad greens or even rice. The sweet sauce complements the tart and spicy flavors of the marinade. 

I usually like to marinate the chicken for a few hours before grilling so that it soaks up all the flavors. 

If you have never tried cooking with tequila, give it a try. I think you’ll like it!
