I LOVE Mexican food. I don't know if very many people know that about me, but it's true. I am not a fan of greasy, nasty fast-food-type tacos, but authentic Mexican cuisine is just magical to my taste buds. Here in Juneau we are seriously lacking in this area (and in the restaurant area period). There is no authentic Mexican food that (in my opinion) lives up to the divine cuisine of the Lower 48. Sad =(
To cure this craving my girlfriends and I had a Mexican Fiesta! And, to make matters more amazing they were all totally on board with a vegetarian fiesta. Pardon our classy (and not-so-classy) beverage choices ;)
Above is a shot of our overall spread. We had both crispy and soft corn tortillas with your choice of beans, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, corn, peppers, onions, guacamole, and rice. It was seriously amazing. My taste buds were lovin' it.
One of my favorite parts of this meal was the corn. This is a recipe that Cody invented (I am sure other people make it) a few months ago. It is just butter (EB Vegan Spread), fresh corn (best if cooked on the cob and then cut off), and chopped cilantro. Heat all ingredients on low, in a medium dish and cook until warm and melty. Add it to a taco or eat it as a side dish…heaven!
So, here is my meal suggestions for the weekend. Try having a Mexican Fiesta!
