My hubby and 3.5-year old little girl loved this! So made it great, since I did not have to make a 2nd dinner for them, since most of the time, they don't wont to eat what I am eating, since I am trying to wotch what I eat. Did not use as much of the lime. Used left overs on a salad. Yummy! - 8/25/08

Sorry, I just noticed your question. Feel free to leave out the tequilla. It just adds a slightly different flavor, but you would be fine without it.
