Default Tequila in food

Was watching a cooking show yesterday and they were using tequila in a steak marinade. Does anyone use tequila in food? Or any alcohol in their food? I just use cheap red wine, in my soups, and sauces.

I use beer on occasion and sometimes wine. Never tried that south of the border stuff. Have a few recipes I want to try kicking around that call for bourbon and such. Mmm... May be tasty.

Beer in the crockpot/slowcooker. White wine and marsala in a lot of dishes, tilapia, chicken...
Stout in cakes, lighter beer in breads.
We've used booze on occasion but I can't think off hand in what, more savory dishes.

I havent lately. Ive been meaning too though, I have a couple recipes cut out and/or bookmarked that call for tequila as a marinade type thing.

Years ago I was out in Colorado visiting my sister. Her roommate and I wanted to make chicken shish-ke-bobs. We just threw together some spices in a bowl with tequila and marinated overnight (I think). Man it was incredible. Wish I knew what we did!

Here is one I have saved. Gonna try it soon.

http://allrecipes.com/Search/Recipes...thTerm=tequila

Dig around this site. I've never made anything that has turned out bad. Check the top 20 link. It's amazing. The pot pie, apple pie, carrot cake, lasagna, soup, zucchini bread and others have all been fantastic. Lots of good recipes on there. You'll likely find everything you will need on there to get yourself drunk on tequila goodness.

Nope, but it sounds like it could be good. Like others I will use beer with foods and white wine for some sauces.

I don't have time anymore for real cooking. I put together quick and easy stuff that tastes like crap, that stinks. I like cooking.
About the only time I really get into cooking anymore is on my grill in the summer, and the only alcohol I use then(besides the bottle in hand) is beer on brats or chicken on a beer can.

I just bought some dry white wine for something I am making in the next day or two. Today I am making a mushroom risotto with some pork chops. Mmmm.

I cook with moonshine, if that counts! Unfortunately my supply is running low,so am savoring the use of it. My source hasn't come back from Portugal for awhile so I need to find another supplier - any takers?
