Fiesta de Julio



This particular fiesta was marked by the surprise entrance of the Mexican sombrero. I don't want to know where these people got them in Britain at the last minute, but they were well in keeping with the mood of the night and made for interesting "Mexican hat dances" as the night wore on.

Menu:

Pork Tamales
Shrimp Salsa
Black Bean & Hominy Salad
Smoky Stuffed Jalapeno Chilies
Avocado Dip
Chilaquiles
Courgettes with Chilies and Cheese
Cream Cheese and Pecan Stuffed Berries

And, of course, the staples of Mexican beer, pseudo-margaritas (shamefully, from a premixed bottle), and mojitos (which aren't technically Mexican, but at least from a Spanish-speaking country).
