(Spiced Black Bean, Grilled Veggies, Jalapeño Chimichurri, and Queso Fresco Cheese)
There are very fews things that make me as happy as when I’m in the kitchen, whipping up a meal to feed a crowd. I make lists with detailed schedules, prepping to my hearts content. The radio cranked up in the background, dancing around the kitchen: it’s pure bliss.
M and I decided it was finally time to have a small housewarming party with a few of his coworkers. I opted to do a build-your-own taco bar and as always, I made far too much food but you can never go wrong with leftovers.
Below is the list of everything I whipped up. Almost everything can be made in advance, leaving time to mingle and have a low-stress party!
For the tacos:
Corn and Pepper Relish (I added a touch of Smoked Paprika this time)
Grilled Vegetables: Zucchini, Onion, and Baby Sweet Peppers
Cheeses: Queso Freso and Goat Cheese
(for the meat eaters: )
Spiced Shredded Chicken (same seasoning as this recipe then grilled the chicken)
Lime Cheesecake (Subbed lime zest in for lemon zest, topped with whipped cream and extra lime zest)
Strawberry Cheesecake (Made as is and added a strawberry topping)
