Last week we had the delight of hosting "A True Fiesta with Guest Chef and Author Lucinda Hutson."
Everyone who attended had an absolutely amazing time - which seems to be Lucinda's specialty! We worked hard in the kitchen to prepare her delicious recipes ahead of time, so by the time class started, we had a beautiful spread of amazing fiesta foods we could enjoy with uninterrupted story-telling and tequila fun! The majority of the recipes in Viva Tequila come together quickly and are best made in advance - so the host can enjoy the party too! All of the recipes had Lucinda's unique spin but one very important ingredient in common - Tequila!
Highlights of our fiesta menu included:
Queso Sabroso (Snookered Goat Cheese)
Queso Flameado (Melted Cheese Flambeed in Tequila)
Corn Salsa Prontisimo (with Avocado, lots of fresh lime juice, and Tequila!)
Negros y Pina a la Criztina (Black Beans and Pineapple Spiked with Mezcal)
A delightful spin on a pot of nourishing beans!
And my personal favorite:
