First Communion a Mexican Fiesta with Emma Pearl Wine

A lot of you know that Saturday was a very special day in my family. Miss J had her first Holy Communion and after the ceremony at the church; we celebrated this special Day with a Mexican Fiesta. What a fabulous way to celebrate with Family and Friends.

A Mexican Fiesta is the way to go when it comes to cooking for a Large crowd, we had 40 for lunch. We had a taco bar with all of the fixings.

plus we served 7 Layer bean dip.

Margarita's both Grapefruit and Traditional

 and Emma Pearl wine which is a fabulous light and refreshing chardonay wine with a bouquet of poached pears, caramel, butter-cream and brown baking spices this debut vintage of Emma Pearl Chardonnay features the preferred characteristics of its Central Coast origin. It has a delicious flavor with a full creamy body and crisp finish with lingering notes of Meyer lemons, toasted cinnamon and sweet cloves.

TIP of The Day : The easiest way to do a Taco Bar for a large crowd is let your Market do the work for you with a rotisserie Chicken Remove all Skin and bones. Next chop into bite size pieces.

Next Cook ground beef in large pan adding Taco Seasoning when almost completely cooked.

Serve as the base for Tacos

Serve as Tostadas

Salud and Have a glass of Emma Pearl wine with me and OneFabulousMom
