Because I have announced that we will be hosting a Mexican themed Christmas supper for my family, my mind has been racing with ideas.
I was believing chalupas and tostadas when I came up with these chicken mexican cups. This is the ideal mix of flavors baked into a crispy baked shell. If you wish to substitute it with beef or shrimp go on. I just wished to keep it easy given that Olivia will be enjoying this appetizer. (She enjoys chicken.) I was also going to top with fresh avocado pieces however it wasn’t ripe sufficient today. Does it need avocado? No, but everything is better when you add avocado or guacamole.
Next week I am thinking of tackling my very first batch of homemade empanadas. I just require to determine what I am going to pack them with so if you have any concepts that would be great.
What would you add to your mexican themed supper and what beverages would you serve?
