Dorie Tucker's New Mexico SalsaMargarita Pie

This is a great recipe from "Tastes & Treasures A Storytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona." I purchased the whole book because it has some fascinating history of hospitality venues around the state that are 50 years or older. But then I found the recipes to be so good and easy to make. This one is so pretty to serve. The photos in the book are yummy. I got it at www.HistoricalLeague.org for $24.95 and free shipping. It is a non profit group so all funds raised go right to the Historical Society Museum for education. 

Pretzel Crust
1 1/2 cups finely crushed pretzels
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
 
Pie
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons gold Tequila
2 tablespoons Triple Sec
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
Green food coloring (optional)
 
For the crust, pulse the pretzels and sugar in a food processor several times to combine. Add the butter in a steady stream and process until well mixed. Press over the bottom and up the side of a 9 inch pie plate sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
 
For the pie, combine the lime juice, condensed milk, Tequila and Triple Sec in a bowl and mix well. Fold in the whipped cream. Tint with green food coloring, if you desire a deeper color. Spoon into the crust. Cover with plastic  wrap and freeze for 4 hours or up to 1 week. Garnish with additional whipped cream and lime slices.
Note: Do not use fat-free or low-fat pretzels in the crust or the crust will not hold together when cutting. You may substitute graham crackers for the pretzels.
 
Serves 6 to 8
