Social Friday - Fiesta with the Best-a Food Challenge

Hey Social Friday Freaks -

So first you need to RSVP for the event this Friday starting after the 5:30 WOD.   Second, bring some friends and introduce them to our magical Crossfit Family.   Third, challenge your creativity in the kitchen with the "Fiesta with the Best-a" Whole 30 Food Challenge!    Can you take that Layered Dip and make it Whole 30 friendly?   Probably not.....so think of something else that will pair up with a "TACO BAR" theme and bring enough to share!

Chef Paul is going to bring a pile of Whole 30 Taco Filling and Guacamole, but we need some sides and accompaniments!   Sign up to bring some fresh salsa, pico, lettuce leaves (taco shell substitute)....the skys the limit!   Right now Im dreaming about some Fiesta Sweet Potatoes laced with those interior Mexican spices oregano and cumin.    Cilantro - you are my friend-o!     Cilantro Cauliflower Rice (Shelby....calling your name)?     Mylien - bring on the coconut milk ice cream please!

Ummm....and for those of us who actually get to enjoy life with a little Cerveza.....well those lime wedges are like little slices of heaven on earth.  

Get out those recipe books - take the fat out and put the flavor in - and lets EAT!

    Paul, thank you!  Just let me know when I need to bring baba ghanoush or lamb skewers (Whole9-approved, of course)!
  • PaulF 04/15/2011 12:17:19

    Linds- I vote for tasty beverages.
    Adrienne: just bring yourself; I've got you covered.....there will be plenty to go around!

    It pains me not to bring a complimentary dish...but I really cannot think of anything taco-y to bring.  I make all kinds of healthy dishes, but they tend to be Middle Eastern or Mediterranean--or just meaty.  

    Cat, any suggestions?  Looks like everyone else has the usual suspects covered--guac, salsa, pico, etc.

    Made some home made Lara bars this morning to bring, Cherry and Blueberry ... tastes great and Whole30 approved !

    I will MAYBE attempt the cilantro cauliflower rice but will definitely bring some fruit for an ice cream topper!

    OK Cat - you have inspired me to try a Whole 30 Fiesta recipe.

  • BeccaR 04/13/2011 22:22:09

  • DeveneyW 04/13/2011 21:04:15

    Sounds amazin!  Cat-would some organic, no salt added black beans work and some avacados????

    What are our thoughts on coca?  http://whole9life.com/2010/09/the-great-cocoa-debate/ W30 or not?  This might influence what I make!
  • RyanC 04/13/2011 12:50:18

    I'm thinking I might try some fajita skewers...with jicama and mango...but I reserve the right to change my mind...maybe some other sweet potato dish...sounds good!
