We'll have a couple of friends over Sunday late afternoon. When asked what they wanted to eat, I was told to come up with something American. Hm... Apple pie? Should I feed them a burger and fries or what? So I decided to go with something I've been hungry for and just haven't had the time/energy/reason to put it all together. Tex-Mex. Hey, that's pretty American isn't it?
Tomorrow's menu: Burritos, (from scratch meat mix is stewing on the stove right now) oven-made nachos, and the ingredient I'm most excited about... homemade guacamole! I perused the stalls at Winterfeld Markt Saturday morning for the perfect avocados, picked out some plump tomatoes, found some WONDERFUL hot chilis, a bit of green onion, fresh lemon juice as a preservative, ground sea salt... oh my, this is going to be great stuff.
This time I decided not to go for the REALLY FRESH tortillas from the local Mexican guy who delivers all kinds of food. Nah, I'll give the Fuego brand one more try. Also I found SALTED tortilla chips at Kaiser's. OK, this is an event! No silly curry-flavored nacho chips for us! Hell, I even sprung for the 2.89 EUR can of Fuego refried beans to see if they're any good. Now all I need is an ice bucket full of Corona and I'm all set!
Anyone want to join us?
