Coming from southern California, San Diego to be exact. I have a love for Mexican food like no other! Now that I am living in the Pacific Northwest I have my days when I just downright miss it sooo much!! I have tried and tried to find comparable food up here to no avail. It is really quite depressing. You know when you are just craving something so much that nothing else tastes good. Ya well, I get that quite often.
When I get that way I fight it a lot because we all know Mexican food can be quite calorie packed. But I do break down once and a while and make some shredded beef or chicken rolled taco’s or carne asada. It is just hard to stay away from the cheese and sour cream when I do that. But I tell myself all things in moderation and where I used to eat like that several days a week, once in a few months is excusable right?
Kevin doesn’t share my enthusiasm for this love of mine. Having grown up here his whole life it was not something he had very often, and when he did it wasn’t very good. I have tried to convert him to the Temple of Burrito but he still remains a non-believer.
So when my cravings kick in I will usually make this little tasty treat to give me a small taste of home.
