Beth Kennedy: Tacos and Margaritas

Meet Beth Kennedy! Yet another mover and shaker that we've had the privilege of befriending via social media! 

Beth has a varied and cultured taste having grown up in Florida (like us!), lived in Spain, and most recently moved to Washington D.C.

I'll leave the rest of the food talk to the one who's actually credible! Check out more of Beth's work at The Spice Girl Blog



I have a confession. I don’t know how to cook anything for less than 6 people. Seriously.

I am not sure if it’s because I am the youngest of 7 children, and I always had to make food for the 5000, or if it’s because I lived in a house with 4 of my best friends in college and cooked for them. Perhaps it’s from learning bulk recipes in restaurants, or always cooking for a crowd during my time in Spain. Or maybe, it’s just an excuse to be in the kitchen for a longer amount of time, you know, for my own personal enjoyment.

Whatever the case, I only know how to make things in bulk. And, I do know for sure that a dish (or beverage) always tastes better when shared. Why am I telling you all this? To give you a heads up, this isn’t just a margarita recipe and a taco recipe. No no, it’s a recipe for a party. Gather your friends, and get to partying.
