¡El Grande Fiesta Royale!

Another year has passed by… Time for my sister-in-law’s favorite: Cheese Enchiladas. As per usual, we put on a big spread. I bought some Chicharrón, Taqueria Mix Pickles, Salsa Verde, Guacamole and Tortilla Clips. I made Elotes, Cheese Enchiladas, Grilled Jalapeños, Rhubarb Salsa, Beer-Marinated Flank Steak. For desert, my wife made Flan.

I had been saving these two beers for just this occasion: Bottleworks 15th Anniversary Ale – a Belgian Strong aged in Tequila barrels – from The Lost Abbey. And with dessert, I had a bottle of the Xocoveza Charred – a stout brewed with cocoa, coffee and spices to mimic Mexican hot chocolate that was aged in Bourbon Barrels – from Stone.
