Easy antojito or Tex-Mex appetizer suggestions
Not looking for a dip, but something a little more substantial that won't get soggy if made an hour or two before being served to a group ~20 people. I need something made from relatively easy to find ingredients as well.
Thank you for your suggestions!
One appetizer that I have had in Patzcuaro, Michoacan that I have not seen elsewhere entails splitting dried ancho chilis, remocing the seeds, and dipping for just a few seconds into hot oil until they get a slight puff.
The were served in managable pieces with Mexican crema drizzled on one side. and topped with cilantro.
Spicy ground pork meatballs just nicely browned and kept warm on a hot tray or even in something like a wide mouthed fondue pot or a chafing dish and served with a bowl of cool creamy guacamole for dunking them in is very good. You could also just make some cubed pork carnitas and serve the sam way, but I really like making up the meatballs and getting a bunch of good spices into them.
