This weekend we invited family and friends over for tacos, tequila, pan dulce and coffee.
My birthday is on Halloween. Instead of tie up everyone's Halloween plans, we hosted a late Sunday brunch.
On the menu:
Refried Black Beans
Refried Pinto Beans
Roasted Golden Potatoes
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Sauteed Nopales and Mushrooms
Sauteed bell pepper and onion
Pickled Red Onion
Cashew Lime Crema
Mexican Wedding Cookies
We used colorful plates & glasses found at West Elm and Anthropologie. We found weaved colorful tortilla warmers at a local Hispanic market.
You can prep everything the night before. The day of, I made fresh guacamole, salsa and potatoes and put everything out on the table for people to assemble their tacos. Chris made pitchers of fresh-squeezed margaritas and the alma blanca. Our friend came over early to make another pitcher of fruity sangria.
As everyone arrived, we served them drinks and I threw some tortillas on the comal before piling them in the tortilla warmers. We brewed a big pot of coffee and everyone devoured the empanadas and cookies.
Easy, stylish, colorful and simple to host - especially if you have amazing friends who will come over the night before and help you dice onions. I'm looking at you, Coffey's.
