Fiesta Themed Baby Party - Menu

Friday, April 8, 2016


SO we've got the decor covered. Onto the food! We had a taco bar setup for the party and it was a lot of fun. It also made it easy to cover a variety of different dietary requirements (vegetarians, no-red meat, picky toddlers). Best of all, it wasn't too expensive, and most of the dishes could be made ahead so the day of the party wasn't too stressful.

Here's a Sample Menu

Taco fillings:
Grilled Shrimp
Ground Chicken Taco Filling

Salad:
Black Bean and Corn Salad (also doubles as a vegetarian filling)
Pico De Gallo
Garlic Cilantro Coleslaw

Toppings:
Re-fried beans
Lettuce
Shredded Cheese
Sour Cream
Grilled peppers
Pickled onions
Tortillas (3 per person)
Guacamole
Lime Wedges
Cilantro
Salsa verde
Hot Sauce

Sides:
Restaurant Style Mexican Rice
Cornbread

Snacks:
Chips
Puff Pastry Churros
Cantaloupe

Drink:
Virgin Margaritas (With a bottle of rum on the side)

Dessert:
Coconut Lime Cake



And yes, shooting photos of the food after people have dug into it isn't ideal, neither is the evening lighting, but eating hot, yummy, food comes before blogging, right? It's the taste that matters. If you're wondering what that square cut dish is in the first photo, it's my mother in law's baklava, a real labour of love. Speaking of baklava, I think there's more in the fridge so I'm going to go now...
