Inexpensive yet interesting 4th of July for 10 people.

escondido123 | Jun 22, 2012 08:30 AM

It looks like I will be hosting dinner for 10 on the 4th. I don't want to go with burgers/hot dogs and potato salad. (My preference would be more along the lines of grilled lamb and gratin potatoes but don't have the budget for that.) Only concern is one person does not eat onions but there is no need for a vegetarian option. Thinking maybe carnitas done on the grill somehow and enchiladas done in the oven. Any thoughts on an impressive feast--apps through dessert--on the cheap?
