Fiesta Rapido in North America Challenge
Whew, don't you love it when you plan something quick and easy for dinner. We were looking forward to a quiet evening, sitting on the deck, sipping our beverages and enjoying a quick and easy meal. Margaritas for me and Ice tea for the hubby. Tonight's menu consisted of: coleslaw, hot dogs and burgers. My hubby was one happy man, as he loves hot dogs and burgers bbq on the grill.

I was placing the pitchers of Spicy Grand Margaritas and Auga de Jamaica Hibiscus Iced Tea on the table, when I heard the doorbell ring. I was surprised, the door bell seldom rings at dinner time. It was my friend and neighbor Donna and her two daughters, they were locked out of the house. We laughed, they were just in time to join us for dinner. Everyone sat down and I offered them a nice cold drink.
While we sipped our margaritas, the girls quickly polished off the rest of my husband's nachos and salsa that he had been snacking on as well as the pitcher of iced tea.
It has been so hot here for the last few days, that I had planned to grill some hotdogs and burgers, make a coleslaw, nothing fancy. My guests were pleased, they like hotdogs and burgers. It was perfect, I could sit and enjoy a drink or two with my husband and friends before I fired up the grill for dinner.
I left my husband and friends on the deck, while I went inside and proceeded to prepare all the vegetables and cheese that I would need for the dishes that I planned to serve. It went faster that way and it only took 15 minutes to chop up or grate everything that was required.
Next, I made the sauce for the burgers, it doesn't get any easier than this, mix together salsa and sour cream. Now I needed to mix the sauce for the hot dogs; because all the necessary ingredients were already chopped both sauces were ready in 5 minutes. I put the sauces for the hot dogs and the burgers in small bowls, because some of the guests were picky eaters, they were served on the side with the rest of the condiments.
Once I had all the vegetables, cheese and sauces ready, I put together Annacia's Chile Rellenos Burgers and got them on the grill right away, along with Linky's Texan Avo-Dogs ( beef hot dogs). I decided to grill them rather than pan fry them. The thin burgers and jumbo hot dogs were cooked in 10 minutes and on the table before we knew it.
I mixed Diana's lovely Texas Coleslaw, last, while I waited for the burgers and hotdogs to come off the grill. It only took 5 minutes to mix all the ingredients together, for a wonderful treat.
Dinner was enjoyed by everyone, the picky ones declared the sauces to be amazing and they left with all three recipes. What a wonderful end to a hot hot day.
Thank you all for sharing your wonderful recipes.
