Three recipes for a Mexican fiesta

Tired of the winter monotony already? Why not throw a little Mexican fiesta to add a little spice to your winter.

Now that January has set in and there is very little to do in the way of parties, why not have your friends over and have a little party of your own. The best food to have at a party is the type that encourages sharing. It gets everybody going and you end up sharing not just food but plenty of stories.

Mexican food is perfect for sharing – think nachos for starters and tacos for mains and you have the perfect fiesta. Add a margerita to the mix (or some Mexican beers) and you’ve set the mood for some January parties that will take the monotony out of the winter until the sun starts to shine.
