I know you know my friend Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, right? Of course you know her! Ree one of my fav bloggers – she’s just as genuine, funny and gracious in person as she is on the blog. I’ve even spooned with her.
I can’t believe that I haven’t mentioned Ree’s latest adventure to you before, it’s simply addictive, fun and delicious…a site called Tasty Kitchen. And this is where you can find one of my must-try recipes, a Kickin’ Tequila Shrimp.
I recently made this dish on the Daytime Show and not only was it a massive hit with the host of the show (and me too), practically the entire camera crew came and hovered over the dish after we finished our segment.
What makes the Tequila Shrimp “kickin'” is the additional Tabasco Tequila – WOWZA!! Take a swig and that baby will kick you in ass! But when you cook with the Tabasco Tequila, it’s smooth and the spiciness mellows out.
Now, let me back up and say that I *don’t* drink tequila. Oh no, I learned my tequila shot lesson…oh…let’s say…in 1995 at a bar…errr…at the back of the bar. Enough said.
But, I lovelovelove to cook with tequila, and this Tequila Shrimp recipe is spot-on. So I’m excited to share the recipe with you – come view the video and then head over to Ree’s Tasty Kitchen site to get the recipe.
