We'll begin with "Empanadas ", tasty little pastries filled with beef, tomatoes, potatoes and herbs. Flautas are next with chicken in a jalapeno/garlic paste and fried crisp in a corn tortilla. We'll then prepare authentic Mexican rice prepared with onions, garlic, tomatoes and fresh cilantro. They'll be Mexican style corn prepared with lime aoli, cayenne pepper and Cotija cheese. Fajitas follow with tender strips of marinated beef and chicken with fresh sauted bell peppers and onions wrapped in a warm tortilla shell. We'll finish with a crème brulee, rich, creamy custard with a crusty caramel glaze.
