Mexican Marinade and Dressing

The meat will be so tender and have an intense flavor of lime and cilantro. It will be a tiny bit spicy.

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk together.
  3. Done.

Use as a marinade or pork or chicken or beef. Overnight is great to really soak the flavors in. If you want to use it with firm fish, use half the juice or you will “cook” the fish and create ceviche.

Use as a dressing for slaw or salad with tacos. Shown here with mixed slaw with broccoli and cabbage and kale.

Sassy Saucy WRAP It Up Buffet Bar

This recipe is designed for that perfect Super Bowl Football Party. All the prep can be done ahead of time and then just set it out and let your guests assemble their very own wrap. These are small size but when they are full, they will fill you up for sure. Lay out all the following ingredients on big cutting board or platter. Give your guests place to assemble.

  • 10-12 " flour tortillas or wraps (for gluten free, use rice flour tortillas found in any store's gluten free section or large iceberg lettuce leaves)
  • whipped cheesy spread (see recipe)
  • rotisserie chicken (sliced in chunks)
  • pastrami slices
  • salami slices
  • dill pickles
  • sliced black olives
  • lettuce
  • bacon chutney (see recipe)
  • avocado
  • sliced tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes
  • spicy mustard dip (see recipe)

  1. Make cheesy spread, bacon chutney and mustard dip ahead of time and store in fridge.
  2. Can cut up all other ingredients and store in fridge.
  3. Can heat tortillas if you prefer but not required.
  4. Put everything out in a buffet layout for people to make their own wraps.

This recipe is mostly prep. Your guests will create the wrap themselves.

Suggest your guests start by slathering the cheesy spread on half the tortilla. Place chicken on the half without the cheese, then add toppings laying things like salami or pastrami slices on the cheesy side. Start by rolling the chicken side because the cheese spread helps "glue" the wrap together and keep the contents from falling out.

Prep Time: 2 hours - Cook Time: 5 minutes ; Yield: 12
