RECIPE: Django Western Taco's guacamole & margarita

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Django Western Taco in Northside will celebrate Cinco de Mayo with $5 margaritas, $20 margarita pitchers, $5 guacamole, tequila and lime cheesecake.

Executive Chef Andrew Mersmann made the restaurant's delicious guacamole and Strawberry & Basil Margarita Sunday morning on FOX19. Check out the recipe below.

Guacamole:

10 avocados

2/3 cup chopped red onion

5 oz shredded or julienned radish

2/3 cup salsa verde (home made, store bought or purchase from Django)

2 Tbsp chopped cilantro

1/3 cup lime juice

1-2 Tbsp small diced jalapeno

Scoop and seed avocados. Put all ingredients in a bowl and mash to desired consistency (we like ours a little chunky).

Strawberry & Basil Margarita Recipe (1 pitcher):

22 oz margarita mix (11 oz strawberry puree, 5.5 oz simple syrup, 5.5 oz lime juice)

8 oz tequila

4-6 large basil leaves (chiffonade or rough chop)

ice

Take a small amount of ice in a cocktail shaker and shake basil with ice  thoroughly to release basil flavor into the ice.  Place basil infused ice into pitcher.  Add 8 oz. tequila (more or less depending on your mood).  Add margarita mix and stir thoroughly until all flavors are incorporated. Rim glasses with salt/sugar mix, pour over ice, serve with slice of lime.
