I hosted a Mexican-themed dinner just last night!
-pulled chicken - based on this recipe
but using skinless chicken marylands which I shredded once cooked, and adding several smoked whole chipotles
-red cabbage 'pickled' in lime juice
-coriander sauce (coriander, garlic, ground cumin and a slice of jalapeno blended together with a couple of tablespoons of water)
-pico de gallo
(These dishes were served with white corn tortillas for people to put together themselves.)
-guacamole topped with pico de gallo which I served with lightly toasted white corn torillas strips (I just bought the Misson branded ones from the supermarket)
-a salad of roasted corn, red kidney beans, diced red and green capsicum, halved red and yellow cherry tomatoes, spring onion, loads of chopped coriander, fire-roasted and deskinned jalapenos with a dressing of lime juice, garlic and olive oil
-a beef, 'jack' style cheese, and chili tortilla bake, topped with sour cream
-a dark chocolate brownie for dessert
I also popped our selection of hot sauces on the table for people to help themselves.
I love Mexican food, and this menu went down a treat. I have also made fish tacos before which were delicious.
ETA: There are some great, authentic recipes here
