Happy Fall, Y’All!!!
I absolutely love fall for so many reasons, but the main reason: I love to entertain! I love football pre-games, post soccer games, holiday events or maybe just celebrating a Tuesday! No matter the occasion, I absolutely love to eat, drink and be merry with my family and friends! It is because of this, that I snatched up the opportunity to collaborate with 5 incredible women on a Sip and Share post event!
You have probably seen some of the amazing collaborations I have done this year with Tiffany Blackmon on her podcast: My So Called Fabulous! She and I discuss in an episode from March 23rd, 2021, how we met, our passion for health, fitness, food and so much more! If you haven’t, you must check it out. Then we collaborated again for the September issue of Austin Fit Magazine. We did 5 Healthy Game Day recipes that are all sure to please! This brings us to today!! With the incredible invitation, I have put together 2 great recipes, one to SIP and one to SHARE!
Spicy Tequila Soda
I love every thing spicy. So when I came across this cocktail in Hawaii a few years ago, I had to make it mine. I prefer bright and crisp when it comes to cocktails and I would rather not drink my calories, so this is a perfect drink to keep my lifestyle clean, while enjoying a perfect flavor profile!
2 Lime Wedges
1 Fresh Jalapeno
1 Lemon Lime Soda Water (I used Waterloo, a local company in Austin!)
1.5 oz Silver Tequila (Use your favorite!)
In a shaker, squeeze 2 lime wedges. Slice jalapeno and add to the shaker bottle. Use a mortor to muddle the jalapeno into the lime juice. Add ice, tequila, and soda. Shake. Pour unstrained into a short glass. Garnish with fresh jalapeno slices and a lime wedge! Cheers!!
Baby Bell Pepper Tacos
Being in Texas, it is automatic that tacos are a part of life! When trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially when trying to incorporate more veggies, tacos don’t always fit the bill. I wanted to have a perfect bite size finger food, with all the taco good
ness, plus some extra veggies!
Baby Bell Peppers
96% Lean Ground Beef
No Salt Taco Seasoning
Whole Black Beans
Fresh Jalapeno Slices
Optional: Cilantro, Salsa, Guacamole, and Queso for dipping
Wash and cut baby bell peppers top to tip. Remove membranes and seeds. Set on Airfryer baking sheet. Fry and crumble ground beef, season with taco seasoning. Drain and rinse black beans. Fill bell pepper halves with beans, meat, cheese, and place the jalapeno on top. Preheat Airfryer to 350. Bake 3-5 minutes, until cheese melts and peppers soften. Serve hot with your favorite dip!!
I hope you enjoy and try each of these recipes! If you do I would love for you to share it on Instagram @mybodygx!!
