Today is the first post in a series called Party Ready Pantry. This series is all about great food products you can pick up anytime from your local grocery store that are great to have stocked away in your pantry for any last minute entertaining. It's always good to have a couple things on hand that are quick and easy to prepare for that unexpected dinner guest or even for a fancy party. Remember, there are great tasting products out there that can make your life as a hostess a breeze! Don't feel obligated to slave over a hot stove all day just because you're hosting a party. Take advantage of what is already available! Less time in the kitchen equals more time getting yourself ready for the party!
Our first Party Ready Pantry item is Gourmet Mexican Seasoning Sauce by Rick Bayless of Frontera Grill.
These rich sauces come in a variety of flavors from Chipotle Garlic to Cilantro Lime. They are all a bit spicy and add just the right amount of heat to your Mexican fiesta. Simply add the protein of your choice and some sliced veggies and you have yourself a restaurant worthy meal!
You can also try mixing the sauce with sour cream for a great party dip!
