Idiot Margaritas

I don’t know if they are called Idiot Margaritas because they are so easy to make, or because if you drink enough of them that is what you will become. These are good! Amy from the Motherload posted about these margaritas in her weekly notebook. Amy found the recipe on Jane’s Apron, and she tried them herself.

The other night Alex and I enjoyed a couple of these refreshing cocktails relaxing on our deck. A great way to cool down on a warm evening.

IDIOT MARGARITAS
1 can limeade concentrate
tequila
beer

Empty 1 can limeade into blender, fill can with tequila and add to blender, fill can with beer and add to blender. Mix briefly to get the beer fizzy. Pour into salt rimmed glasses and ENJOY!

If you don’t want to use that much tequila, fill your can with desired amount of tequila, then top off with club soda.

Remember: 1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila, FLOOR. Drink Responsibly.

Beer and Lime Marinated Chicken Fajitas

Tonight’s dinner was these delicious marinated chicken fajitas. To be honest I did not measure my ingredients for my marinade, this allows you to season according to your flavor preferences. A quick stir-fry for the meat and veggies allows these fajitas to be done in a matter of minutes. I served my fajitas without a tortilla (to save some calories), black beans and yellow rice. It was a very filling meal with less than 245 calories! As a bonus, this entire meal comes together in less than 30 minutes.
