We're visiting Mexico this month at my Around The World Potluck club!
Course ya gotta start things off with a margarita and a yummy appetizer:
(Those are Mexican Egg rolls, prepared by Betsy. YUMMY! Recipe HERE if you want to give them a try.
Shelly prepared a wonderful Mexican Caesar salad. With Cilantro Pepita dressing, pepitas and tortilla chips as garnish. Oh and I think there was lettuce in there too. (HERE is a similar recipe)
Our most delicious main dish was Robin's chicken and cheese enchiladas -- Muy Bien!
Here is her recipe in case you want to try these:
