Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless

Acapulco "Jump Right In" (#310)

Vacationing in the opulent Las Brisas resort overlooking the Bay of Acapulco, Rick and his family decide to throw an impromptu party-right in their hotel room. At the colorful Acapulco market, they round up party props, flowers and everything they need to make Bruschetta Mexicana with Queso Fresco, Mint and Black Pepper; Guacamole with Tostadas and Sliced Radishes; Shrimp Salpicon on Crispy Chalupita Cups; Fruit Kebabs with Honey and Granola, Homemade Margaritas, and Limeade. Shot entirely on location, the preparations all come together without a kitchen-tasty proof that with a little improvisation, you can make a party out of anything. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
