Simple Desserts to compliment Tex-Mex dinner?

ideabaker | Feb 7, 2009 08:06 AM

Hello, all; I am in the process of putting together a Tex-Mex dinner party menu. Please let me preface this with the fact that I lived in TX for twenty years, however, due to dietary restrictions, I was not raised a dessert eater.

Now I am living in colder climes (outside of Texas) my guests will expect some kind of dessert. Normally (in hotter weather) I would compose a fruit dish with sorbet or home-made whipped cream. The super-cold winter we are having demands something with a bit more substance, and preferably warmth. I would like to present a dessert that will be hearty, yet elegant, tasty, and simple-to-assemble which will follow up a rustic chicken enchilada (with homemade corn tortillas) main meal.

Does anyone have any thoughts? I am drawing a complete blank as I don't have much experience with desserts in general.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
