Mexican BBQ

May 28, 2011

Whenever my friends and I get together for a barbecue, we always go Mexican.  Maybe it is the smell of the carne asada charring on the grill or digging into the flavor explosion that is the 7 layer bean dip.  These barbecues are a time when we can reconnect, relax, and have a good time.  We are officially in grilling season so try these recipes for your next backyard bash.

7 Layer Dip
All your favorite dips in one package.

Pico de Gallo
A salsa that can be served on top of your tacos or with tortilla chips.

Salsa Verde
Made with tomatillos and has a spicy kick.

Carne Asada
A inexpensive choice that is delicious and can feed a lot of people.  Serve with lime wedges, chopped cilantro and onions, and corn tortillas.

A perfect drink for any Mexican fiesta.
