...and we've only deviated once, with Chinese (go figure).

Typical menu:

Carnitas (with all the fixin's)
Chile Verde (Sandra in NY's recipe rocks!)
Albondigas (using broth from carnitas... oy!)
Red Pozole (Rick Bayless)
Mexican Rice
Red Pork Tamales (Rick Bayless)
Green Chile Chicken/Cheese Tamales(hybrid recipe)
Plus tons of appetizers, dips, etc.
Margaritas, wine, beer, and other goodies.

Most of the 'mains' can be made ahead, and the meal can be served buffet style very easily. The trick is for your guests not to fill up on appetizers before the main meal. Left overs freeze really well, or you can eat like a champ for a few days.
