Sunday Suppers: Fiesta Time

We never get tired of tacos! So welcome to our Sunday Supper taco bar.

Pick a meat:

Mezcal and Lime Chicken

For those folks with a more gentile constitution, there are brands of mezcal without a scorpion in the bottle.

Carne Asada

That’s a lot of beef

Blackened Shrimp

The secret layer is made of avocado

Pick a side:

Spicy Black Beans

Yes that taco is garnished with extra slices of avocado

Mexican Slaw

Just whip, whip it good

Saffron Rice

Who put veggies in the starch?

Refried Beans

That is how I check to see if they are done

Pick your poison:


Taco night is alright with me

Blood Orange Margaritas

It can also be blended

Mezcal Mules

Yes Virginia that is a scorpion in the bottle

And don’t forget the guac!

Really, it’s healthy, I mean they are fruit.

    We have one of those bottles of tequila with a worm! Don’t think I’ll try it though!
    We had Mexican at our favourite Mexicsn place on Friday night…yum! But it wouldn’t stand a chance against this dish and the wonderful colourful cocktails. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you!

  11. Wow.. all of these great recipes in one spot. Which to choose!! I’d better start with a drink;)

    This really is a feast! I’ve never tried to cook carne asada but that looks like one great dish. And any post that includes a DEVO reference is all right in my book.

  13. The color of your blackened shrimp is simply outstanding.

    Love your idea of a taco bar! Honestly, I didn’t realize Mezcal had a scorpion in it. (!) (I get enough of those in my house without it, ha!) But, I’d be glad to take some of that blackened shrimp and saffron rice and guacamole off your hands… πŸ™‚
