Had to work 8 to 7 today and wanted something good for dinner that didn't take too long. This fit the bill perfectly and was delicious. The only think I might change next time is to grill the shrimp instead of sauteing. I picked the shrimp up on my lunch break, so it was nice and fresh. It really did taste like a margarita! Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game.
