Smile Late Christmas Eve Dinner Post

Sorry for the delayed posting. With all the Holiday festivities and me working between Christmas and NYE I’m just now getting around to posting this. I gave my niece the choice of what she wanted for Christmas Eve dinner as she is a new mother. She chose tamales which is a tradition around these parts.

Below is the menu that I put together for the dinner. (Links to recipes included where there is one)

Tamales (I cheated and bought them at Costco)
Verde Sauce

Mexican Rice – Link: https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/s...d.php?t=223944

Black Beans
3 15 oz. cans of Black Beans
1 onion – diced
½ poblano chile - diced
½ red bell pepper – diced
1 jalapeno chile - diced

Cheesy Corny Bread – Link: https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/s...ghlight=cheesy

Mexican Slaw – Link: https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/s...t=mexican+slaw

Pickled Red Onion – Link: https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/s...kled+red+onion

Lime Slices

Crema

Shredded 4 blend Mexican cheese.

Cotija Cheese

Pico de Gallo – Link: https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/s...highlight=pico

Guacamole – Recipe in this Link: https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/s...ight=Guacamole

A picture of Palomas (In lieu of margaritas)

And for dessert we had Churros & Ice Cream with Carmel sauce

The night before I cut up the veggies and made the dressing for the Mexican Slaw and put them in the fridge for the next day.





Christmas Eve morning I made up the guacamole

and put all the veggies in the serving bowl.

I made up a picture of Palomas.
2 ¾ cups Grapefruit juice
2 ¾ cups Blanco Tequila
1 cup lime juice
1 cup Squirt
5 tbsp. Agave Syrup
¼ tsp. salt
Directions: Fill a tall glass half way with ice. Fill with paloma mixture to 2/3 high and then top off with Squirt.

I then made up a batch of Cheesy Coney Bread.





While that was baking, I made up the Savory Black Beans

and steamed the Tamales.

I had already put the Mexican Slaw on the table and now put the dressing on it.

Corn bread is ready.

I cut it and put it on the table.

Here’s the table just before everyone was seated.

View of the table facing the opposite way.

Here is everyone seated and waiting to eat.

After giving Grace I plated up a delicious dinner.





As the family was leaving, we heard some chatter in the Cypress tree and went to investigate. We saw this Racoon trying to leave but not wanting to come down with us there. I was able snap this photo of him stepping on the Christmas light controller box for the Cypress tree.


Thank for looking.

I am very interested in that cornbread. I have had the corny cornbread, but it didn't have cheese in it and at my house we are very big on cheese.

Thank you Joedy. I've made this bread many times. You don't really see the cheese in it, but it does help the flavor and texture. Oh and just to correct the recipe in the link. I added 3/4 cup of white sugar. I found that 1/4 cup wasn't enough for the flavor profile I was looking for.

My brother said it was the best corn bread he's ever had. A lot of corn bread is nothing more than a syrup or honey delivery system. This bread doesn't need syrup or honey although if you want dessert, add it and it will give you that.

Man that looks like a fantastic meal! The raccoon got a glimpse of that and said he would rather have leftovers than scavenge through your garbage. Who could blame him. I have no doubt that everyone (slowly) left the table feeling happy and full! A totally awesome evening!
