Munchie Mondays: Party Food!

You don't get just one, but THREE recipies today! These were all items that I served up during my kick ass 30th birthday party (post forth coming).

First up we've got the Cindy Kiss. Yes, I made up the recipe some time ago. The joke being that it's red, kinda sweet, complex, easy to manage, but has a little bit of a bite to it.

Cindy Kiss Cocktail
serves 1 or 2 depending

1 shot of gin
1 shot of bourbon
1/2 shot of dark Jamaican rum
1/2 shot of Grenadine
1 shot of peach nectar

Combine above ingredients in a shaker with a couple of ice cubes until well encorporated. Pour over ice into tumbler and top off with sparkling water.

Serves 8

3 large ripened hass avacados
1 medium tomato
1 small red onion
1 bunch of cilantro chopped
juice of 2 limes
juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves of garlic crushed
1 tbs of garlic salt (or more for taste)
1 tsp of black pepper (or more for taste)
1/4 of tomatillo salsa
1 jalapeno pepper finely chopped (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash with fork or potato masher. Cover and chill for at least 30 mintues to let ingredients to combine. Serve with corn chips.

This is a SUPER EASY recipe that tastes great, packs well for pot lucks and makes a nutritious meal served atop rice.

Bean and Corn Salad
Serves 6

1 can of black beans rinsed and drained.
2 can of corn drained
1 can of diced tomatoes drained
1 poblano pepper finely chopped
1/2 small onion finely chopped
1/2 cup of cilantro finely chopped
1/2 cup of sour cream
black pepper for taste

Comine all ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let flavours combine.

I loved the bean & corn salad, and your guacamole was excellent - of course Blake had to tell me that mine was better, but I think he's just trying to be nice 'cause yours was fab!!!

My guac could have used more lime, actually. It wasn't the best that night, but thanks! JBro, it tasted okay right? As long as you didn't KNOW there's sour cream it should be okay. :) Sandy, I'm glad you had a blast!
