Tres generaciones Tequila

  • 100 ml Tres Generaciones® Reposado Tequila
  • 800 g Beef tenderloin
  • 2 slices of smoked bacon
  • 1 Tsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mexican pesto:



  • 1/4 red bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1/4 Green bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1/4 yellow bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1/4 zucchini (diced)
  • 1/4 red onion (chopped)
  • 1 Tsp garlic (chopped)
  • 2 Tsp dried tomatoes (cut into strips)
  • 50 g butter



  • 150 g cooked black beans (just the beans, not the broth)
  • 3 Tsp olive oil



Clean the meat by removing the excess of fat and slice it into 200 g medallions. Wrap around each medallion with bacon and use wooden toothpicks to hold them. Season with salt and pepper to taste and sear it in a pan with olive oil. Set aside.

Mexican pesto

In a food processor or blender combine the basil, coriander, epazote, garlic (peeled), cotija cheese and olive oil. Add the walnuts and pine nuts at the end and then grind gently until they have a pesto consistency. Set aside.


Sauté the bell peppers and zucchini in a saucepan with olive oil. Add the purple onion and the garlic. Mix and season with salt and pepper to taste. Finally add the dried tomatoes and the Three Generations® Reposado tequila (being careful not to flame). Finally, emulsify with the butter.


Serve on a plate the black beans, the loin on top them and on each side, the peperonata. Top it all with the Mexican pesto and enjoy!
