Strawberry Margaritas

strawberry margaritas

Make yourself a Strawberry Margarita and we will talk about being stuck in a Dinner Rut.

Do you make the same thing over and over again? Monday is burgers, Tuesday is pasta, Wednesday is take out, Thursday is chicken etc. Does it sound familiar?  We love pasta and for us it is the first thing that comes to mind when we prepare dinner at the last minute.

Some of you may say that you are trying hard not to make the same things for dinner every week. Being creative in the kitchen could be a challenge at times.  It’s easy to fall in the trap of making the same meals, especially if you have picky eaters in the house. You may not be able to prepare a different dinner every night of the week for one month but if you have a well-stocked pantry including Old El Paso Dinner Kits that could save you some nights that you are running out of time.

When you hear the question: What’s for Dinner? You will be ready to prepare a meal in thirty minutes. I am excited to have been chosen for the Old El Paso Brand Ambassador campaign and in the two months coming up will be featuring yummy recipes that are quick to create for your dinner rush. 

For as long as I can remember we always loved Mexican food in my home. A favorite is fajitas. What I like about fajitas or tacos is that you put everything on the table and everyone makes his own version. Even when we travel we like to stop at a Mexican restaurant and I usually order fish tacos. I make a salmon taco at home that my son request often. For this recipe I like using the Stand ‘n Stuff Old El Paso Taco Shells. We always keep a box in the home.

Would you tell me what challenges your family face weekly at mealtime?


10 fresh ripe strawberries
2-4 ounces tequila
1 ounce fresh lime juice, or more to taste
1 ounce Triple Sec

Simple Syrup
2 parts sugar
1 part water

1- Fill a blender with 1 to 2 cups of ice. Depending how much ice you like. Blend until the ice is crush.
2- Add the strawberries, Tequila, lime juice, Triple Sec and simple syrup to taste. Blend until the consistency that you like.
3- Pour onto 2 glasses. You can put some salt or sugar on the rim on the glasses.
4- To prepare Simple Syrup: Bring water to boil. Add sugar and dissolve, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Allow to cool and then keep in the fridge until ready to use.
