While the rest of the world is celebrating Christmas Eve
with a traditional menu,
my family celebrates it
South Texas style.
Christmas Eve is not a time for these.
Instead it is a time for
Because if your menu is like mine,
nothing works better.
If it is cold outside, I will prepare my friend Celeste’s
Pozole, a wonderful soup with hominy.
Before eating it, it is delicious sprinkled with finely shredded
cabbage and white cheese.
I will serve it in my soup set that I bought on the side of the road (my favorite place to shop)
San Miguel de Allende.
I also use these plates which I bought in Dolores Hidalgo.
The rest of the menu includes
tamales from Delia’s in McAllen.
My favorite filling is cream cheese, jalapeno, and chicken.
(tamale purists would not approve…)
We will also have my husband’s
frijoles a la charra
We will also have salsitas, pico de gallo, guacamole,
and chili con queso.
Chocolate Sheet Cake- because
nothing is better with Mexican food than chocolate...
unless it’s my friend Anna’s pineapple empanaditas.
