Mango Margarita with Tajin
1 tablespoon of Tajin or chile powder
1 lime wedge
1 ½ large mango slices, peeled, jarred or fresh
Juice of one lime
2 - 3 ounces of Mango juice (if using jarred mangos)
3 ounces silver tequila
2 ounces orange liqueur
1 1/2 ounces agave nectar or honey
1 cup ice
Makes 2 drinks.
Spray the mango slices with butter flavored cooking spray and then grill over direct medium heat until all sides of the slices until grill marks are clearly visible. Remove from grill and cube. Should be enough for ½ cup.
Spread the chile powder in a dish. Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with the lime wedge; dip the rim in the chile powder to coat. In a blender, puree the mango with the lime and mango juice. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into the glasses and serve.
Tajin chile powder gets its tang from dehydrated lemon juice.
