A few weeks ago Drew and I hosted a taco party as we had two dear friends visiting town! We made some yummy Margaritas, bought our favorite salsas from Hugo’s Tacos and slow braised a nice quality pork shoulder from McCall’s Butcher. Our friends brought the sides like rice, beans, dessert and beer.

condiments for tacos: cilantro, scallions, honey-chipotle salsa, spicy crema, cheese and Anjali’s spicy pickled carrots as well as red cabbage salad
Elan’s horchata cupcakes (vegan and gluten free too!)
Everything was delicious and we had a blast with our pals. I hope this meal magically reappears on my table when I get home from work on Cinco de Mayo.
