Let's get our SALSA on...

Does any body in this whole world love 
SALSA or PICO DE GALLO
as much as moi ?
and BLUE CORN CHIPS.....
YUMMM
This amazing SALSA recipe belongs to
BETH at Food Is Art
and you can go HERE for her great instructions on making the BEST salsa.
If you like this kind of food,
I PROMISE you won't be sorry you tried this one.
Out here in WEST TEXAS,
we call this generous chunks
PICO DE GALLO
OOO......and for dessert....
Ever tried a
MARGARITA CAKE ?
My daughter made this one and may I just say.....
OOO HONEY !!
♥♥♥
MARGARITA CAKE
1  BOX LEMON CAKE MIX
1 (3/4 oz) Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup tequila
2 Tbs. triple sec liqueur
GLAZE
1 CUP Powdered Sugar
1 TBS. tequila
2 TBS. triple sec liqueur
2 TBS. lime juice
♥♥♥
 350 oven
Grease 10 inch Bundt pan
Mix all cake ingredients together and beat for about 2 minutes.
Pour into pan and bake about 35 minutes, depending on your oven.
Just check it and if a toothpick comes out clean,
that baby is ready to take out of the oven.

Mix the GLAZE ingredients together until smooth..
Pour over cake when cake has cooled.

This is a really good cake but be sure not to cook it too long or it will be dry.
Stacy poked holes in the cake with a fork before adding her glaze and it was
DELICIOUS.
I am playing with:

TIME TRAVEL THURSDAY
OPEN HOUSE THURSDAY

What a delicious post! And I was trying to skip lunch today, or maybe just a protein shake, but I want chips and salsa and a margarita! xo,

I'm not much into salsa. But that cake looks delishhhhhhhhhhhhh...

Guess it's another version of the Whiskey Cake. Which I have made.

Even make one with a Gluten Free Cake Mix and we both enjoyed it!!!! But hey, anything with Jack (Daniels) in it, has to be good. ,-)

Actually, I have never had a Margarita! Imagine that! :-)

What great food ideas!!! Oh, and I love the table you are going to paint...I can hardly wait to see the finished product!

We've had a terrible stormy day.....spent part of it in the basement while sirens were going off. We got lucky and didn't have any tornados on the ground, but sadly a nearby town did...fortunately, no one was seriously hurt.
