Let me show you what we ate!
We made 3 kinds of chicken: all in the crockpot.
|Cilantro Lime Chicken|
|Enchilada Chicken: Add Chicken to crockpot, pour sauce over, cook!|
|Add chicken to crockpot, add this SALT FREE herb mix from Kitchen Stories, and cook! This was the most popular!|
We made a batch of plain, cooked hamburger- some of our ladies have allergies! We also made this wonderful Taco Meat recipe from Mels Kitchen Cafe. Try it! You'll enjoy it!
For sides, I whipped up a batch of Balsamic Black Bean Salsa (my new favorite party recipe), Pioneer Women's Resturant Salsa, and a batch of Mom's Salsa for the mild folks.
What was really good though, was my Guacamole! I think I got more compliments on that then on anything else. I really wish I had a picture of this. Just imagine smooth, creamy guacamole. I didn't make my Perfect Guacamole because of the allergy issues. Plus, I figured I probably should make something a little less spicy. Costco has really great Hass avocados right now. Use those!
Mash the Avocados in a bowl to your desired consistency. I prefer this recipe nice and smooth. Add a large dollop of Sour Cream, and mix.
Then, sprinkle the rest of the ingredients over the top of the guacamole. Mix in. Taste, and adjust seasonings as needed!
Tip: Store guacamole in fridge. Place plastic wrap DIRECTLY on the surface of the guacamole to prevent it from turning brown too quickly!
That's it! I made this again last week, but didn't get a picture... again! Hmmm... I'll just have to make it again...
We had a great drink as well... recipe coming soon!
All in all, it was a terrific event! We had little party favors, and one of the ladies made a guitar pinata!
