  • 2 oz Patrón Citrónge
  • 2 limes for freshly squeezed lime juice 
  • 1 lime wedge for garnish 
  • 1 tbsp for salted rim

  2. Combine all ingredients, stir, and add ice. 
  3. Garnish with a lime wedge. 

Frito Pies:


  • 1 bag corn chips

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°.
  2. Warm the canned chili in a saucepan over medium heat on the stove.

  4. Second Layer: Add another layer of corn chips, and then sprinkle half of the shredded cheese evenly over them. Spoon the remainder of the chili evenly over everything.
  5. Third Layer: Add one final layer of corn chips, spread the second can of Rotel evenly over the corn chips, and sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly over everything.
