Last night we ate at my favorite Tex Mex restaurant in Houston – El Tiempo. I always love their tomatilla sauce, fajitas and margaritas. We were meeting up with friends from my grad school program – one couple who just moved to Houston, and one just visiting. So El Tiempo seemed like the perfect place to take everyone.
Pat and I got there a little early to try to get a table. They wouldn’t let us sit until more of our party came, so we decided to hang out at the bar and enjoy a margarita 🙂
We started out with chips. They serve them with salsa and tomatilla sauce. The tomatilla sauce is so good, I don’t even touch the salsa here. I could eat a whole basket of chips with it! And probably almost did…
This was the first time we visited since I became a vegetarian. In the past we have always ordered the steak fajitas. As amazing as they are, I decided to order the spinach enchiladas in verde cream instead.
They were so yummy, stuffed with spinach and cheese. I ate one and packed the other up for leftovers. These were just as good as the fajitas! I also love the green rice that is served with most of the meals. It is seriously my absolute favorite rice!
It was a fun night with great food and great friends! Me with Lauren and Andrew:
