7 Ways to Cook with Tequila

Here, seven tequila-infused recipes.

Our favorite thing to make with tequila is, of course, a margarita (preferably made using Jim Meehan’s expert technique). But cooking with the spirit is also a delicious (if not quite as intoxicating) experience. Here, seven tequila-infused recipes.

1. Guacamole with Tequila and Lime
Don’t be afraid to use high-end tequila in this creamy dip.

2. Tequila-Mustard-Glazed Chicken Skewers
Tequila is used both in the marinade and in the mustard for these skewers.

3. Tequila-Flamed Shrimp Tostadas
Tequila adds a fantastic smokiness to the shrimp.

4. Tequila–Spiked Caramel Corn
This adult riff on Cracker Jack is more suited to a cocktail party than a baseball game.

5. Queso Fundido al Tequila
Rick Bayless’s simple 20-minute dip is just the thing to satisfy a sudden craving for something warm, salty and gooey.

6. Grilled Oysters with Spiced Tequila Butter
These oysters are grilled just until they open, and then topped with a spoonful of the boozy butter.

7. Tequila Chicken Fajitas
A splash of tequila in these easy chicken fajitas adds a nice burst of flavor.
