Kids are invited to this Cocktail Party. Pressure Cooker Margarita Cocktail Boiled Peanuts are Salty & Sweet with a juicy Lime Flavor.
Here’s a crazy idea. Pressure Cooker Margarita Cocktail Boiled Peanuts. I had a hankering for Boiled Peanuts tonight and was thinking, maybe Cajun or Barbecue. I asked my husband which flavor he preferred or did he have something else in mind.
He said, I don’t know, what about Lime. Lime, really? I already had the peanuts in the Pressure Cooker with a bunch of Sea Salt when it hit me. Sweet & Salty Lime, Margarita! That’s it. Pressure Cooker Margarita Cocktail Boiled Peanuts were born.
Making Pressure Cooker Margarita Cocktail Boiled Peanuts in an Pressure Cooker, takes a fraction of the time it takes to make them on the stove or in a slow cooker.
Rinse the raw peanuts well and remove any twigs or anything that is not a peanut.
Add some sea salt boiled peanuts, sugar and True Lime Crystalized Citrus. Alternatively, you can squeeze in 10 or so Fresh Limes, or add a carton of Limeade. Do whatever makes your comfortable. I used the True Lime Crystalized Citrus because I wanted an intense Lime taste.
If you want something more traditional, try my Pressure Cooker Southern Style Boiled Peanuts and dream of the South. I’m from Miami, which is South, but not actually considered the “South.”
I did live in Charleston for a while, so, I do know my peanuts. Plus, driving across Florida on Alligator Alley, you run into a lot of Boiled Peanut Stands.
To keep the peanuts immersed in water, place a plate or trivet on the peanuts to hold them down.
