I love entertaining guests. I just love it. Being able to bring together a group of people to brighten up their lives with fun, laughter, and human connection. What more beautiful gift could you provide people?
With my love for food and entertainment, it is only natural to create a hybrid of the 2 and host a party every once in awhile or simply celebrate something special with loved ones. Even though this food creation wasn’t spawned from a party per se, I did build it as a chance to celebrate a birthday surrounded by family.
Obviously from the title, this is not a typical cheese board, but it will be a wonderful surprise to anyone who is able to enjoy it. I am a sucker for tequila, and spicy foods just pair so well with it. With that in mind, I chose to pick a few ingredients that would pair beautifully with some great cocktails.
Spark some excitement in your taste buds as you enjoy this food pairing with some delicious drinks, and, to get the most out of it, light up your life with some fun people to share this with!
