Just in time for Cinco De Mayo this weekend I am excited to share this Margarita Pie Recipe!
I am a fan of margaritas so I figured why not try it in a pie!
Recipe adapted from 200 Easy Mexican Recipes: Authentic Recipes From Burritos to Enchiladas. This cookbook is filled with fantastic recipes that I can not wait to try. I have tons of post it notes in the cookbook right now marking all of the recipes I want to try. On the top of the list are Cactus Coladas and Grilled Shrimp.
