I'm hosting an Easter dinner this coming weekend with a Mexican theme. I'm working half of the day on the day of the dinner so I need some fresh ideas for Mexican food where a lot of the prep can be done ahead of time. Ideally, the entire menu would stick to the theme, from appetizers to dessert. Any suggestions?

Lynne, this is an easy kind of dinner to prep ahead! I'd suggest making a big pot of carnitas
or goat meat
and a big bowl of slaw
and other sliced vegetables. These things will hold well (as will pitchers of aguas frescas and margaritas).
Readers, what else would you suggest?
