With refreshing lime flavor and a festive look, these cool margaritas are perfect for parties. To make a no-alcohol version, simply replace the tequila with an equal amount of water.—Barbara Gersitz, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
My grandma loved these so much, she would hide them from my grandpa! I think of her every time I make a batch. Like Mexican spice? Try stirring in a little chili powder. —Michele Lovio, Thousand Oaks, CA
The unlikely combination of ingredients (including jalapeno peppers and strawberry ice cream) in this cool dessert creates a wonderfully grown-up version of a classic ice cream sandwich. —Melissa Hansen, Rochester, MN
Bizcochitos, with their wonderful citrus and spice flavors, are special cookies we look forward to each year. It just isn't Christmas Eve at our house if we don't have these cookies with mugs of Mexican hot chocolate.
Infused with a sweet silky mixture using a trio of milks, these little cakes are three times as good. Because they soak overnight, they're an ideal make-ahead dessert for an upcoming fiesta. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
