Fried Onion Rings
Who doesn't like a hot stack of perfectly fried crunchy onion rings? From an entree, to a side or piled high on your favourite burger, these gems top our list of fun foods to serve during get togethers.
Refried Black Beans
Description: Refried black beans, also know as frijoles negro, is a traditional staple of Mexican and Tex-Mex cooking. This dish is usually prepared from pinto beans but we prefer the rich earthiness of black beans. Smooth in texture and deep in flavour, this is a perfect dish to accompany eggs, enchiladas, burritos, tacos and more.
So simple yet so good. Guacamole is one of our favourite entertaining dips and is at the heart of the table for tacos, enchiladas, migas, burritos, and more. Healthy with good fat and bright.
Looking for a little something different? Also know as 'Cowboy Caviar,' this side dish is about as Texas as it comes. The colour, texture and flavour combine to make this a standout appetiser. Serve with your favourite corn chips or along side your proteins.
Elote Corn Ribs
A spin off of Elote (grilled Mexican street corn), these little two to three bite wonders are packed full of flavour and fun to eat. Creamy, tangy, salty, and smokey, get ready to up level your side dish at any upcoming barbecue or fiesta.
Cucumber Pico de Gallo
Living in Austin, you’d get a side of Pico de Gallo with all your Mexican meals. Fresh tomatoes, onion, jalapeños and coriander mixed together to form a fresh accompaniment to any spicy dish. To change it up, we decided to make a more Mediterranean version using cucumber and red Spanish onion and suddenly, a lamb taco has its new best friend.
Smoked Deviled Eggs
Growing up in Texas, deviled eggs were a staple for our family holiday gatherings and backyard BBQ's. Soft, succulent and savoury, these little nuggets of goodness are aways a crowd pleaser but we decided to take them to the next level with some added smoke!
Ancient Grain Salad
A unique salad that pairs beautifully with lamb, chicken or other Mediterranean inspired meals. Full of flavour and texture, this dish appears complex but is really just a clever mix of fairly simple ingredients.
Roasted Tomato Soup
Grilled cheese and tomato soup was a childhood favourite and now, you will never have to open a can again! Fresh oven roasted tomatoes and onion combine with the sweetness of roasted garlic give this soup it's traditional flavour whilst Black Angus provides depth and character.
