Servings: 8 to 12
This is my new favorite margarita to teach and to drink. Tajín powder, a mixture of chile, salt, and citric acid, makes an interesting change from a salt rim.

My friends and I love this recipe! Some things to note: the taste of tamarind is not for everybody. However, if you grew up eating Mexican candy, you probably know and like its taste very much. This margarita captures the salty, tangy, sweetness of tamarindo very well. The "muddy" color of the margaritas that the other reviewer describes is to be expected, because tamarind paste is reddish brown. This recipe goes wonderfully with Cazadores Reposado. With a kick of lime and Tajín on the rim, this margarita is a tasty way to add a little bit of chamoy to your cocktails.
Hmm. Didn't love this recipe. The color is a little muddy which wasn't a great start. The tamirind paste is odd. I wanted to like this more but between that and the chili rim just a little too savory for my taste. Too bad because the tamarind paste was expensive and I have no idea what to do with the rest of it. Sorry Fine cooking. You usually knock it out of the park.
