Homecoming's Mexican Appetizer
Mexican appetizers are so good they were gone within minutes at my homecoming years ago, these appetizers are meant to made in large amounts since everyone eats them right away. Try them and see what you think of richness in flavor and texture.
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 jar thick and chunky picante sauce
1/2 jar dried beef, chopped
8-10 flour tortilla shells
1 C cheese, grated
Mix cream cheese, picante sauce and dried beef until creamy. (You may chop the dried beef in a food processor, then add the other two ingredients and mix.) Place one tortilla shell on serving dish and spread with a layer of the mixture. Repeat this process until you have a stack of 8 to 10 tortilla shells with cream cheese layers between. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Cut into wedges to serve. Sprinkle with grated cheese and paprika. If desired, serve with sour cream, guacamole, or extra picante sauce on the side.
The grated cheese can also be added to the cream cheese mixture rather than sprinkled on top.
These Mexican appetizer are just one of the many recipes that I have for Mexican food try these though they are the best in my opinion. I have been making them for years since its a classical recipe in my family. Try and see what you think.

Homecoming is a yearly ritual held at every university across the country. Typically it is held the weekend of the second to last football game of the season. This is a terrific weekend to get together and tailgate with old college buddies before, during and after the game.
Throw an excellent homecoming tailgate party by serving a school themed menu: Co-ed Cake, Frat Boy Brats, Mascot Mashed Potatoes and of course iced cold beer should be readily available at any tailgating situation.
Mascot Mashed Potatoes are simple to make for homecoming. Start with 1 1/2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered length-wise, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 4 Tbsp heavy cream, 2 Tbsp butter 1 Tbsp milk, and Salt and Pepper. Make sure to have a potato masher on hand to smash the potatoes. Put potatoes into a saucepan. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add water until potatoes are covered. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes, or until done - a fork can easily be poked through them. Warm cream and melt butter, together, either in microwave or in a pan on the stove. Drain water from potatoes. Put hot potatoes into a bowl. Add cream and melted butter. Use potato masher to mash potatoes until well mashed. Use a strong spoon to beat further, adding milk to achieve the consistency you desire. (Do not over-beat or your potatoes will get gluey.) Salt and pepper to taste.
Adding this menu to a homecoming with good friends and good beer will make for an extraordinary game, even if your team doesn’t come home with the victory. By just adding even one simple food item to the menu will help create a complete Homecoming event mood.
