Ingredients for a jalapeno mango margarita
- Frozen mango – Frozen mango chunks give this margarita a cold iced slushy texture.
- Mango juice – To add even more sweet, mango flavor!
- Lime juice – Lime juice helps add brightness and a fresh citrus flavor.
- Jalapeño pepper – This pepper will give us a fresh spicy kick!
Fresh or frozen mango?
For shopping ease, frozen mango chunks can be found at most major grocery stores in the freezer aisle.
However, if you have fresh mangoes on hand, those will work fine as well!
Use just as much fresh mango as is written here for frozen, and to achieve that frozen slushy texture, simply adds an extra cup of ice.
Spice level for this spicy mango margarita
All of the heat from a jalapeño pepper lives in the seeds and the ribs which are the white parts connected to the seeds.
Using the jalapeño whole will give you a full spicy blast!
If you’d like to tone down the level of spice, simply remove the seeds and the ribs before adding the jalapeño to the blender.
What is Tajin?
Tajin is a Mexican spice blend that’s made of chili peppers, lime, and salt.
You can usually find it in most major grocery stores in the international foods aisle.
No worries if you can’t find it feel free to use regular salt, or sugar to rim these margs!
Lastly, Trader Joe’s also makes a copycat chile lime seasoning if you have one nearby!
Different types of tequila
To keep it simple, there are two different kinds of tequila you can find in the store – gold and silver.
For this jalapeño mango margarita, I chose silver tequila, because it has a stronger fresher, cleaner taste.
When silver tequila is made, it is bottled immediately and is not aged at all.
Gold tequila has more of a unique taste, and golden color, from it having been aged in barrels.
In my opinion, the flavor nuances of gold tequila could be lost in this jalapeño mango margarita.
That’s why I really recommend silver tequila for this margarita.
