This Saturday was Margarita night at our house. Instead of the traditional lime I went all out by adding some ruby red grapefruit juice to the mix. And what are margaritas without NACHOS??? A damn shame, that’s what.

Grapefruit Margaritas Ingredients:

Juice from 7 -8 limes

2 1/2 cups of Ruby Red Grapefruit juice

2 cups Italian Grape Fruit Soda

2 oz Cointreau

8 oz Tequila


Squeeze the limes into a pitcher. Add the Cointreau, grapefruit juice and stir until mixed. Add the soda and gently stir. Pour over ice and add limes to garnish.

Black Bean Nachos Ingredients:

1 can black beans drained

1/2 bag of white corn tortilla chips

1/2 bag blue corn tortilla chips

1 cup shredded cheese

1 Jalapeno sliced

1/4 green onions

1/2 guacamole

1/2 low fat sour cream

1/2 pico de gallo

1 lime


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray foil with cooking spray. Lay chips out on foil.

Squeeze lime over chips. Spoon black beans over chips, add cheese and jalapenos.

Bake until cheese begins to melt. Remove from oven and add Pico de Gallo, sour cream and guacamole. Serve.
