Attention all. History has been made here at SpoonHQ. We took efficiency to the next level by taking salsa and infusing it with tequila, because why not eat your salsa and get tipsy at the same time? J-Kwon would agree.


No, this has never been done before, and we’re pretty pumped about the results. It leaves a tequila burn on your tongue, but it’s subtle enough that you’ll keep going back for more. Then you get drunk. Isn’t food cool?

#SpoonTip: Take shots of the leftover tequila-infused salsa juice like a boss.
