OH YUM....

So, there i was, eating my chex cereal while reading Google Reader and I came upon this magnificent picture. This desire to throw a Cinco de Mayo BBQ came over me and then I came back to earth when I realized it falls on a Tuesday, not a good thing at all. But for our next bbq, I might just have to whip these little babies up!
Margarita Bites

I found this recipe on Let's Entertain. It's a great site that will give you endless ideas! She is now on my faves too!

2 cups boiling water
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) JELL-O Margarita Flavor Gelatin (or lime flavored)
1/2 cup tequila or cold water
Zest and juice from 1 lime
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

ADD boiling water to gelatin mixes in large bowl; stir with whisk 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in tequila and 2 Tbsp. lime juice. Add COOL WHIP and 1 tsp. lime zest; stir until COOL WHIP is completely melted and mixture is well blended.

POUR into 8-inch square pan.

REFRIGERATE 3 hours or until firm. Cut into 36 pieces to serve.
