Mexican Food

It would be possible to live here and avoid Mexican food entirely. Everything a gringo could want is available in this town, at one store or another. There are 10 or 20 large grocery stores, including a Sam's Club and WalMart. There are specialized stores for natural foods and ethnic restaurants of many varieties.

But I never get tired of Mexican food. In the summer, when it was too hot to cook, we ate fajitas about five nights a week. Tamales are available at a nearby market, pork, chicken or chile with cheese. You can reheat them in the microwave. Taco stands are on every corner. Limes and juice oranges are plentiful year round, delicious and very cheap. Chiles rellenos, ceviche, guacomole, salsas, corn chips, fresh tortillas, fresh shrimp and tuna and red snapper - what a cuisine! Great tasting and most of it is easy to prepare. Yum!

Time for lunch...
