Margarita Jell-O is not an easy find, so we improvised by using two boxes of lime Jell-o and 1 cup of boiling margarita mix in place of 1/2 the boiling water called for in the recipe. We loved the way it turned out - the perfect light bite for your next adult party. Be sure to garnish with salt... It really makes the dish!

Directions

1
STIR boiling water into dry gelatin mixes with wire whisk in a large bowl at least 2 mins. Stir in tequila and 2 tbs of lime juice. Add whipped topping and 1 tsp of the lime peel; stir until whipped topping is completely melted and well blended.
2
Pour into an 8 inch square pan.
3
Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm. Cut into 36 pieces to serve. Garnish with additional lime peel and coarse salt, if desired. For non-alcoholic substitute cold water for tequila.

I don't know, I just found the recipe at the store one day and I think they did have Margarita flavored Jello next to it; I'll have to check the store next time I go, because I'd really like to try this recipe.
