We will start with Appetizers including Salsas and conclude with Rice, Empanadas and Lemonade.

Salsa Cruda – incorporates diced fresh Tomatoes, Jalapenos or Serranos, Cilantro, Lime Juice and a little Salt.







Beef Empanadas are more traditionally an Argentine Dish but they can also be found in Mexican Cooking.  The Empanada can be filled with whatever you please – diced Steak or Chicken or Ground Beef along with Tomatoes, Onions, Cheese and maybe some Chilies.

Sparkling Lemonade – we first had this in Acapulco and I have been making Lemonade this way every since.  It is delicious, refreshing and a great accompaniment to any meal.
