Here’s a great idea for your year-round entertaining…pop up some festive corn with a punch. The heat of the jalapeño, the coolness of lime, and the pop! of tequila come together nicely in this adults-only treat. It’s a great snack for munching on the patio with a pitcher of margaritas close at hand—sophisticated, unique, and quite possibly responsible for folks jumping on tables and dancing like Pee Wee Herman. Tequila!
