"Mexican" menu -- Side dishes? Appetizers?

spyturtle008 | Dec 13, 2006 08:40 PM

One of my 'standard' menus when I have guests over is tex-mex / mexican themed. I generally make tofu-spinach enchiladas, corn bread muffins, and a big pot of mexican rice. It all ends up tasting pretty good, but it's so... orangey-yellow. I'm not exactly an ace in the kitchen, so those three things are probably about all I can handle prepping as the guests arrive. Any ideas (vegetarian) for other side dishes or appetizers that would fit this menu and that I can prepare ahead of schedule (beyond a chips & salsa kind of thing) that wouldn't be orangey-yellow, mushy, or ultra-cheesy? How about a dessert idea or two? TIA...
