    I bought stuff to try to make empanadas, hope they taste like the ones I had growing up in the Canal Zone in Panama. Now I just need to make them Tacos sound good too, but there is just me, and they don't store well in the fridge.

    ummm... some Pico de gallo, and some fresh fried tortillas, and empanadas (I buy frozen goya discos.. they're really good).... oooh and burritos, and... Nachos! (I love nachos! with refried beans, hot salsa, pickled jalapeno slices, black olives, guacamole, and shredded extra sharp cheddar (or pepperjack))

    ooh... and some Tequila too.... and, the one time a year I'll drink it... a corona.

    yummu.(pronounced yum-moo... long story)

    I made Tamales and Chiles Rellenos. Of course, you HAVE to have Tecate with it!!!!

    What, no Dos Equis? :chuckle

    At work some of our staff brought in various Mexican dishes......there's just nothing like homemade Mexican food. We had arroz con pollo , enchiladas with mole sauce, empanadas, and of course, nachos. Of course, I let myself go a little and ate some of everything, for which I almost immediately paid a high price (worst gas and stomach cramps I've had since I changed my diet) but oh, was it ever tasty!

    That was the worst thing about leaving California all those years ago: for the longest time, you couldn't get good Mexican food in Oregon. Then we started getting more immigrants, and now you can't swing a cat without hitting a Mexican restaurant. Not all of them are good, and they do tend to make the food comparatively bland, but you can always spice it up with some habanero pepper sauce or some salsa to give it some authentic flavor. YUM!
