Mexican Gourmet Club

My good friend Kim & I hosted our Gourmet Club this month. It was tons of work, but all in all, it turned out really well. It was our first time hosting one, so we learned a lot in the process (like to not do Mexican food, where every dish requires tons of garnishing!). Anyway, we found some great recipes, so I thought I'd share the menu.

Appetizers:

Brie Quesadillas with Fresh Fruit Salsa (these have candied pecans in them! SOOO good!)

Avacado Salsa

Cumin-Dusted Tortilla Chips

Lola’s Horchata

Chipotle Hummus


Drink:

Kiwi Lime Margarita


Salad:

Mexican Chop Salad with Cream Tomatillo Salad Dressing


Soup:

Southwest Corn & Chicken Soup


Main Course:

Tomatillo Pork Fajitas

Lime-Cilantro Rice with toasted pine nuts

Mexican Fruit Medley drizzled with lime & honey


Dessert:

Faux Fried Ice Cream with Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce


Take home gift/dessert:

Dulce De Leche Bars

Here's a few pictures of the evening.








It was fun to see it all come together, but will say that I'm glad that we don't have to do it again until next May! It's much more fun to just sit and enjoy a fabulous dinner, while someone else is doing all the work! :)

So Fancy Schmancy! I don't know how you do it! But it looks absolutely fabulous. Maybe I'll try and be that fancy one day. Maybe I'll try for a Cinco de Mayo party next week. Yay! Thanks for sharing.
