Notes

I tried this with frozen (then thawed) strawberries and Trevor and I thought the margarita turned out too syrupy. Fresh is best for this recipe.
**Start with a little slice (about 1/2 inch thick) and add more until your desired spice level has been reached. If you don't like spice at all, I'd recommend taking the seeds out of the jalapeno.
 
If you're gluten free, make sure your tequila is, too!
