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.
