How often have you wanted to invite some friends and have a good time, but you don’t know what to serve? It’s a big dilemma, even for food bloggers… I have spent many hours thinking what food they would all like that it is fun, different, tasty, and not very expensive of course …
Well, today I bring you an idea that meets all my food dreams for a party and doesn’t require much time from you in the kitchen.
You can get most things ready at the supermarket. Consider 1 hour to arrange and prepare everything, and you are ready for good company. So, back to the food, with today’s special diets and allergies, I think the smartest thing to have at a party is a bar or buffet where each guest chooses her food… I decided on a Tostada bar (crispy corn tortillas) because they are delicious.Print
- Tostadas (a bag of 20)
- Refried Beans
- Guacamole store-bought or homemade.
- Marinated meat for fajitas
- Sautéed mushrooms with ancho chile powder (vegetarian option)
- Lettuce into strips (use iceberg lettuce or romaine)
- Limes into quarters
- Chopped cilantro
- Crumbled fresh cheese
- Thinly sliced radishes
- Mexican cream (or sour cream)
- Sliced jalapeños or pickled jalapeños
I also made a salad mixing pico de gallo (store bought) with boiled corn and black beans (BUSH’S of course, rinsed and drained). Taste and adjust the seasoning.
To drink, I served an autumn sangria with apple juice, wine, apple slices, and grapes. It is better to prepare it a couple of hours before serving to allow flavors to blend.
Alfajores and coffee to end the party.
