ideas for a Mexican menu?

Njchicaa | Mar 5, 2012 03:53 PM

My family has vacationed in Cozumel for many years and it is near and dear to our hearts. With my sister's upcoming wedding and $1200 round trip tickets in coach, we are all reluctantly skipping our usual spring break vacation. My birthday is coming up, though, so I invited a few of our nearest and dearest for dinner that night. I want to do a Mexican menu because I'm dying for it and I know that they will all appreciate it too.

Here are my thoughts so far:

Apps:

homemade guacamole, pico de gallo, and chips
shrimp ceviche

Dinner:

ground turkey and black bean burritos (Chipolte-style with cilantro lime rice inside)
fajitas (skirt steak marinated with garlic, seasonings, lime juice, and olive oil, sauteed peppers and onions, and leftover salsa and guacamole)
Mexican rice

Dessert:

not even touching this one. I don't bake but I imagine my mother will bring a cheesecake as a "birthday cake"

Do you guys have any other ideas to add to this? I'm not looking for a super-elaborate meal especially as the dinner is on a Friday night and I work all week. Love the fact that I can do the burritos in advance.
