From One Plate at a Time we started with the Roasted Poblano Guacamole then moved onto the Guajillo Braised Pork and Potato Tacos. A trip to my favorite "mexicatesstan", La Palma, brought me to the perfect tortillas for those tacos-they are truly the very best in SF and make every supermarket tortilla pale in comparison. I made a quick Mexican style slaw with cabbage, radish, jalapeno, carrot, and pepitas to go with the tacos-we loved it right on top.
From Fiesta at Rick's, his latest book, we had unbelievable Watermelon Mojitos (sorry, drank 'em too fast-no photo) and these handmade gorgeous Tamal de Frijoles Negros con Queso de Cabra (Black Bean and Goat Cheese Tamales).
If you haven't started your own cookbook club yet, I can't recommend it enough. It's so much better than a regular old book club! And, if you're lucky enough to pick Rick Bayless as your inspiration for the night, I can only hope your meal is as delicious as this one.
