Hi,

I'm having a dinner party in a few weeks and I've got my main course all worked out. It's a Spicy Beef Tenderloin recipe from the Food Network (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ty...). I've made it before and it is absolutely delicious and it holds well once cooked, so good for a dinner party. When I've made it before, it was for an afternoon/casual BBQ where the sides were potato salad, fruit, etc. I need to find something to elevate it to dinner party status -- this will be a fairly fancy event. The recipe was featured on an episode titled "Mexican Fiesta" so that is what is stumping me. I'm planning to grill some vegetables, but I'm totally at a loss on a starch -- things I've considered are Baked Cheese Grits, Potatoes Gratin and Risotto. My additional challenge is that two of my guests are vegetarian, so the Risotto seems like a good fit for them, but doesn't seem like it "goes" with jalapeno spiced beef. Any suggestions out there?

Thanks!
