  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder

  • 1/2 head butter lettuce gently torn into large pieces

Instructions

Kicked Up Tequila Orange Ham

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine apricot preserves, chopped garlic, orange juice, tequila, smoked paprika, and chipotle powder in a sauce pan over medium high heat. Simmer for 3- 5 minutes until starting to thicken. Remove from heat and let cool. Sauce will thicken even more when cooled.
  • Brush ham with about 1/4 cup of the sauce. Place in an oven safe pan, with a little water in bottom of pan, and cover. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes per pound, brushing on more sauce intermittently while baking. Serve remaining sauce with sliced ham.

Smoked Citrus Salad

  • Stir together lime juice, agave, smoked olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Combine butter lettuce and citrus segments. Drizzle with lime dressing. (Blood orange will stain the other fruit. Make sure to add this at the very end)
