I make the pasta salad using the ingredients mentioned above only everything comes fresh from the fridge including the tomato sauce. I chill that the night before, but don't hesitate to use chilled bloody mary mix, gives it a nice kick. I boil my pasta at night also, drain and cool, the place in a large ziplock and add enough cold water to cover. Drain well for 15 minutes before assembling salad. I like everything to be very cold.
For the Marguaritas, I use lime sherbet instead of ice cubes and only add Tequila, I don't add the Triple Sec because it tends to water the drink down. I place the sherbet in the blender, add fresh squeezed lime juice from half a lime, and one or two shots of Tequila. Blend till smooth and poor into Margarita glasses that have been rimmed with sugar. Tip side of glass with a fresh orange wedge.
I make a standard recipe for guacamole, except I add lime juice instead of lemon juice for this meal.
For my chips, I take boughten corn tortillas, and cut in wide wedges(usually just four pieces out of one tortilla). Then I slip them through a pan of cold water that is laced with lime juice and salt(stir to mix until the salt is dissolved). Then place on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees F until nice and crispy. You can sprinkle with salt wihle still warm, but it is not necessary.
Hope this helps!
