In The Kitchen: Ultimate Strawberry Margaritas + Spicy Black Bean Salsa

My favorite part of watching sports is consuming insane amounts of chips and salsa, and washing them down with bottomless ice cold, slushy, Strawberry Margaritas. - I prepared this Margarita recipe in about 10 minutes tops, and it was so good I didn't need to make any modifications the second time around. 

This tasty Spicy Black Bean Salsa recipe is another winner I found on All Recipes.Com. It is super easy to make, and the payoff is absolutely delicious! - I did make quite a few modifications to this recipe: I used fresh tomatoes, fresh garlic, added cilantro, omitted the black eyed peas, subbed green onion for regular onion, and subbed fresh lime juice for the zesty Italian Dressing. I think these mods gave the dish more of an authentic Southwestern feel.

8 Ounces Frozen Sliced Strawberries in Syrup
4 Fluid Ounces Frozen Limeaide Concentrate 

Fill a blender with ice and crush. Pour in the tequila and triple sec. Add the strawberries and limeade. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth. Serve in margarita glasses.
