Easy Tuna Dip receipt by Betty Badd

All you need is a few simple things available at your nearest supermarket.


1 12oz can of crab meat

1/2 cup picked sliced jalapeño peppers (add more if you like spicy)

2 tablespoons of jalapeño juice (from the jar of pickled peppers)

1 bunch of fresh cilantro.

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

Tortilla Chips


Open your can of crab, drain water and place in the blender. Rinse and pat dry the cilantro and discard the stems. Then simply add your cilantro and your jalapeños to the blender with the mayo. To liquefy the dip, I like to add the jalapeño juice giving it a sour flavor. Once everything is in, start up the blender! Pulse your blender until everything is combined and you have reached the desired texture. Pour it in a bowl, break out the chips, and its ready to be served!

HOW EASY WAS THAT?! No mess, hardly any cleanup! Just the blender…

Hope you enjoy this recipe

Meyer Lemon Margarita

Meyer Lemon Margarita | Betty Badd.jpg

As everyone knows, my cocktail of choice is always a margarita! Though I'm perfectly happy sipping on one made with a mix, there really is no substitute for making them from scratch - especially when they are this easy! 

If you've never had a Meyer lemon, you're missing out. Reportedly the cross between a lemon and a tangerine, it tastes like the islands to me and goes perfectly with tequila. Speaking of tequila, let me get something out here... for those of you that say you  hate tequila (or it hates you), I can guess you've probably had a bad experience with cheap tequila. There is a huge difference between lower-end and high quality tequilas. Splurge for the good stuff, people! It makes a difference.


juice of two meyer lemons (if they are large, use one and add more juice if needed)

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

3 tablespoons good tequila (I prefer Patron but you can use my rose-infused tequila too!)

2 tablespoons orange liqueur 


Add the lemon juice and sugar to a cocktail shaker and stir before adding tequilla and orange liqueur. Add a few ice cubes and shake vigorously for about a minute. Pour into the glass and add additional ice if neccessary. Enjoy!
