my must-haves for tequila and tacos recipes
For my taco recipes, you’ll notice that many of them are made with an Instant Pot (like the Instant Pot Ultra or Instant Pot Duo) or a slow cooker! That’s because I’m all about EASY recipes. So if I had to add one must-have to your list, it would be any of these.
For tequila cocktails, you’ll mostly need the same basic barware tools. This would include a jigger, cocktail shaker (my personal favorite is a Boston shaker), and cocktail strainer. Also make sure you have plenty of ice on hand!
just one more thing…
For those of you who are hoping to throw a party, you’ll probably need some appetizers as well, right? To keep in the theme of tequila and tacos, I recommend this savory grilled mexican street corn crostini or mexican arancini! Both are oh-so tasty, as well as unique enough to really wow your friends and family when you serve them up.
