Don’t know why, but I feel like whipping up a batch of Mexican food, or at least the Americanized stuff with which I’m familiar: tacos, burritos, enchiladas accompanied by lots of rice, black beans, salsa, sour cream and guacamole. We don’t usually eat Mexican, but I picked up a taco kit at the supermarket over the weekend and had to make do with ground beef and spices that had the taste of Taco Bell and the texture of glue. I served shredded lettuce, tomatoes and cheese but it didn’t really take away that fake-taco taste. So, now I want to make the real thing.
Anyone have any suggestions, or any good recipes to share? I’m trolling the web looking for something interesting. For some reason, enchiladas are catching my eye but that could just be the pictures.
Oh, another thing. I’m a spice wimp, so I won’t be downing anything with lots of chilis, no matter how authentic the dish. If you’ve got something tasty and mild, I’d love to try it!
