We have had yet another successful supper club! This month Annie and Jeremy hosted. They picked Mexican Fiesta as our theme. It was fitting, considering it was Cinco de Mayo a few weeks ago!
Annie set the table beautifully! She is so crafty. She had a white table cloth with ribbons going across the center. She had big colorful vases in the center with bright flowers to match the ribbons. The CUTEST part was our M&M stuffed chili pepper name tags. She even had a festive chalkboard with an adorable paper wreath hanging from it.
The food was absolutely delicious! Kirsten was in charge of appetizers. She made spicy cream cheese stuffed phyllo cups with a sweet chili dipping sauce. Missy was on drinks. She definitely didn’t disappoint. The men had Modelo beer, while the ladies had Pomegranate Margaritas. Needless to say, we enjoyed our drinks thoroughly!
Annie was in charge of the main course. We started with a 7 layer mexican salad with a variety of dressings to choose from (our favorite being the creamy mexican). Then we moved on to pulled pork tacos with a variety of toppings and jalapeno cilantro cream sauce.
Last, but not least, was dessert! I made a Sopapilla Cheesecake (recipe below). Completely unhealthy (let’s just say the recipe is from Pillsbury) and not something I would normally make, but it was DELICIOUS!
We had an amazing night! There’s nothing like a night of good food, great friends, and strong drinks! Viva la fiesta!
- 2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls
- 2 packages (8 oz each) reduced fat cream cheese, softened
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups sugar (divided)
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 350F. Unroll 1 can of crescent rolls and place on the bottom of a 13x9 ungreased glass baking dish. Stretch the dough to cover the bottom and press together perforated lines to seal.
- In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat cream cheese and 1 cup sugar. Scrape the sides with a spatula and beat until completely smooth.
- Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Pour the mixture over the dough in the baking dish.
- Open the second can of crescent rolls and place on top of the cream cheese layer. Lightly press seams together.
- Pour the melted butter evenly over the top. Mix the remaining 1/2 cup sugar with the 1 tbsp cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top of the butter.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes until center is set. Cool slightly, about 20 minutes. Refrigerate for easy cutting. Cover and refrigerate any remaining bars.
