This month was my turn to host my Cause A Stir Kitchen Club. Because it fell on Cinco De Mayo, I took the advise of Linda and had a Mexican theme. I can't believe I didn't make the connection of May 5th!
I started off with dips for regular corn and blue corn tortilla chips. The first one looks ugly because
it bubbled over the side in the oven. Thankfully I had a foil covered sheet pan under it for just such accidents. It tasted mighty good tho'.
I made a mango salsa, and with hess avocados 10 for ten bucks,
I made guacamole. Next was a soup course and I made tomatillo gazpacho but don't have a picture.
The main course was beef enchiladas with salsa verde. It was very good.
Dessert consisted of two different sweets. These adorable looking things are dulce de leche half-moons. They have caramel inside of a wafer that was folded over and roasted pumpkin seeds were placed around the opening where the caramel tried to eek out.
My very first try at making churros was a big hit too. Some were cinnamon and sugar dipped and the other ones were waiting to be dipped in chocolate ganache. It was a fun time. Everyone went home with recipes.
