By Pati’s Mexican Table 

Pati invites a few of her girlfriends over for a much needed “girls’ night in.” But these girls are here to grill! Grilling isn’t just a guy thing — Pati’s got a great outdoor grill, and she’s gonna put it to work by cooking up a mouth-watering menu of Mexican food with a BBQ twist. One of Pati’s sisters shows up to help her mix some drinks too!
