Don’t be the only one that looks good at a BBQ – it’s all about the presentation when it comes to what you’re serving your guests. Make your home-parties instagram-worthy with these 2 recipes: Pineapple black bean tostadas with Spicy pineapple-coconut margaritas. Vegetarian-friendly and super refreshing for these hot summer months.
This is my 5th post with Olmeca Altos Tequila. I created a margarita that you could use either the Reposado or Plata (silver) tequilas. Both have that sweet agave + aged-citrus taste to them, which is why I used them in a pineapple-coconut based drink.
With this sweet + spicy cocktail and the tostadas, you have no excuse not to have people over this weekend.
PS – Don’t forget to invite me.
Spicy Pineapple Coconut Margarita
1/2 a pineapple blended
2 ounce Olmeca Altos Plata or Reposado tequila – Silver or Gold
2 ounce coconut water
1-inch ginger, minced, adjust according to preference
Mint Leaves, garnish
- Blend chopped pineapples to puree. While the pineapple is in the blender, add chopped/minced ginger and blend together also. Adjust amount of ginger according to your preference.
- Combine pineapple-ginger puree, coconut water, and Altos tequila together in a cocktail shaker and add ice. Shake.
- Finely strain into a glass with ice.
- Garnish with mint leaves.
Pineapple Black Bean Tostadas
Corn Tostada Shells
1 can of black beans, blended in a blender.
The other half of the pineapple, chopped
Chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon cumin
salt + pepper
- The hardest part of this recipe is just chopping up the pineapples, onions, and cilantro. You can do it, I promise.
- Blend up and/or mash black beans + add seasonings to that as you please. Cumin, salt and pepper will be good enough unless you want it to be spicy.
- Throw chopped pineapples, red onions, cilantro, and corn together in a bowl and mix around. Add lime juice to the mixture.
- Lay your tostada out, spread your black bean puree onto the bottom, add avocados as a bed for the pineapple salsa.
- Top with queso fresco and more cilantro.
