Chile Pineapple Margarita Recipe

When you need a margarita in your hand, try this Chile Pineapple Margarita recipe!

Hatch Chile Pineapple Margarita

Margaritas are a favorite, but if you want to liven things up, this easy to make hatch chile pineapple margarita is just the ticket.

I first saw this recipe on a suggested recipe card as I was walking through my favorite store, The Fresh Market, and thought that I should try it especially since I had a fresh bag of hatch chiles with no real plans for them.

Sliced pineapple

What is the Silver Tequila?

This margarita uses silver Tequila, which can be substituted for gold Tequila if you prefer. Silver Tequila is clear, and barely aged if at all. It can be a harsh choice if simply using a mixer, and I highly recommend purchasing the best quality you can afford. It is not the type of Tequila that you’d want to sip straight but it really works well in this margarita recipe. I’m partial to Patron Silver Tequila, but whichever Tequila you choose, you won’t be disappointed with this recipe.

Here’s a list of the best Tequila brands that I came across from Esquire.
