A Mexican Feast

food blog 029 I recently went over to a friend’s place for a Mexican dinner party…. and yes, we dressed in theme.

He made the most delicious food- everything was impeccable. These roasted almonds were to die for- smoky, a bit spicy, and hard to quit eating.  He roasted the corn for the calabacitas tacos, and the rajas were equally impressive (but I’m a wimp and apparently can’t do spicy!) My favorite, though, was his homemade guacamole, topped with crab meat and cheese- talk about decadent. Top it off with a couple of pitchers of sangria, and we had a blast!

I made Mexican brownies with chipotle and cinnamon, and like a bad blogger, didn’t take any pics. They were popular, though, so be on the lookout for a recipe!
