Mexican Food

#1 Postby JW » Mon Jun 08, 2009 3:26 pm

Since every thread I post in seems to have burritos mentioned in it, I though I should start a new thread. One which encompasses MORE than burritos!!!

Just had quesadillas last night!!! mmmm
Mexican food is such a staple in our household.
Oddly enough, I find it tough to eat when in Mexico.... so much meat and cheese in everything. I usually tip the cook to make me dishes vegan style.
The salsa is absolutely amazing there! so fresh!

anyone else crazy about mex food?

I am! I am!

I adore enchiladas, here is how I make them..not authentic AT ALL, but delicious nonetheless.

I also make baked chimichangas.

Nachos are another fave and I will make them occasionally with baked tortilla chips.

This recipe for smoky refried bean soup is delicious.

I freaking LOVE Mexican food! I used to work at a tex-mex place (when I was veg.) I think that is when the obsession started.

There is a great place near where I live, I have gone there so many times the server knows my husband and me by name :lol:

it's just so addicting!!!

tried a fabulous dish last summer (which I still need th recipe for)
tortilla pie

layers of tortillas, beans, salsa, corn, onion, tomato, avocado
baked in the oven
yum

I used to be addicted to the spice. Now I'm a little more sane and use the spice to complement the flavours rather than just blow my head off :wink:

I love Mexican food, but I don't prepare it at home. I used to make homemade burittos. I used black and red beans mashed up together.

went to a local mexican restaurant for dinner last night.
and yes.... you guessed it.... I had a buritto!!!
very good but I have to say the service was quite poor. I think it really takes quite a bit away from the enjoyment of a meal.
I'll be contacting the manager today (I'm somewhat of a consumer advocate in that way)
just not good!

I never used to enjoy avacado but inside the buritto.... mmmmm

Mexican food is so easy to veganise and its tastes so great fresh. I love, love, love pico de gallo. I can eat it all day long. Burritos with beans, or what I did the other day was cut up yellow squash and cook it with green pepper, onion, garlic and cilantro. A little salt and pepper and your done. Soooo good.
If you are what you eat and you don't know what you're eating, do you know who you are?
