  1. Slice limes in half and scoop out the inside. (You toss them away or juice them before scooping for future use.)
  2. Line a baking sheet with rice and nestle the lime halves on the rice. The rice should keep the halves from flipping over.
  3. In a small pitcher, mix Jell-O mix, boiling water, tequila and whisk until combined.
  4. Fill lime cups with Jell-O mixture and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to chill.
  5. Once done chilling, top with black sesame seeds and serve.
