This recipe was inspired by team #1’s dinner from our family vacation dinner competition. With the kids at the team leaders and the Top Chef style knive-pull of “beef”, this team decided to do mexican night. They created a delicious, healthy, meal of taco salad, fajitas, margaritas, guacamole, and liquid brownie heaven (to come soon). The dressing on the salad was a hit. This is my attempt to remember and create my own version. Results=even better! (Sorry, Heath, creator of my inspiration:))
BTW…if you have never done family food competitions, you are totally missing out. It is terrific fun for all ages, you get to feast, its ways cheaper for a large group, and you get new and fun ideas to take home with you.
Oh…and I forgot to mention, this meal was made for my great friend, Julie’s’ birthday. Happy Birthday, Jules. Love you, dude!
