Here in Southern California a Mexican or Southwestern Fiesta is a time of celebration. Cinco de Mayo ushers in the summer season with cocktails, avocados, corn, black beans and more wonderful fresh ingredients. Join us Thursday, May 12, 6:00 – 9:00 at the Holy Nativity Community Hall for a Southwestern Fiesta and learn some new ideas for your summer parties.
I’ve created a fabulous menu from some of my favorite Southwestern books. Last year I met two food bloggers, Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack and Vianney Rodriguez when they were introducing their new book, “Latin Twist” filled with a cocktail for every occasion. We are going to celebrate with a Spanish red wine cocktail from Latin Twist called Zurracapote. Yvette’s previous book, “Muy Bueno“ is filled with amazing authentic Mexican recipes and we will make her Mexican Rice, Black Bean Salad and a beautiful Mango Upside Down Cake with a Cajeta-Rum Glaze.
We will make these fabulous recipes for our Southwestern Fiesta on May 12.

- Lime-Grilled Chicken with an Easy Mole Sauce from McCall’s Food Editor, Barbara Chernetz’ Healthy Chicken
