Some good recipes for a Mexican fiesta include chicken tostadas, fish or pork tacos and chiles rellenos. A traditional fiesta also typically offers a pitcher of margaritas and some fresh-baked churros.
To make a Baja-style fish taco, make the beer batter by mixing flour, salt and pepper in a bowl and then gradually whisk in 1 cup of Mexican dark beer. While letting that rest, heat oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit in a large skillet on medium heat. Season fresh halibut fillets with salt, pepper and flour and then coat the fish on both sides in the beer batter. Fry the fish in batches for about five minutes each, or until crispy and brown. After draining, add the fish to a fresh tortilla with shredded cabbage, tomatillo salsa and cream sauce.
MyRecipes.com has a simple recipe for fresh oven-baked churros that does not involve frying. While the oven is preheating to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, unfold and cut puff pastry sheets into 1-inch wide strips. Place the strips on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. While the churros are baking, mix sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. After removing the churros from the baking sheet, dip them in butter and coat them in sugar and cinnamon.
