For decades Houstonians have been begging for this recipe and until now it has remained a guarded family secret. It’s guaranteed not to disappoint you or your guests. The drink is not available anywhere in Houston- only in Latin Women’s Initiative cookbook! September 15 – October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month with Latin Women’s Initiative.
This nonprofit organization is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of Latin women and their families through service and support to organizations that provide community resources, education and health services.
They have created a beautiful cookbook, Latin Flavors, that is not just your mama’s Tex-Mex….it’s traditional Hispanic fare that the women grew up eating before staking roots in Texas. In fact, Latin Flavors actually won an International Gourmand Award, taking home first place for Latin Cuisine. This is one of their great recipes.
Cut top of tomato off carefully. Scoop out inside until only outside walls of tomato are left. Rim tomato with salt (if desired). Pour lime juice, Maggi, Worcestershire, tequila and Tabasco into tomato.
Slice Serrano pepper down middle lengthwise. Use to stir cocktail and as garnish.
For a less spicy drink, do not slice the Serrano.
