ISO extras for Sunday menu

I have company coming Sunday. They are coming kind of unexpectedly, so I'm trying to rework what I was making anyway and fill in the missing parts. I have the makings for a Mexican layered salad that's pretty hearty (it has cornbread in it.) I thought maybe some grilled chicken-apple sausages and then a marion berry crisp for dessert. Somehow I feel like I'm missing something....but I don't know what it is. I'm looking for stuff that can be made ahead or is hardly any work.

Maybe continue the Mexican theme with some tortilla chips and salsa. If you want to perk it up, stir in some black beans and/or fresh corn. Perhaps some guacamole dip.

I'd go with some raw veggies and salsa, okay, add chips, and add some fresh fruit for dessert as well.

I agree with Dawgluver and CWS..a nice pico de gallo and/or guacamole dip with chips.
For a beverage, horchata might be a nice refreshing drink.
