CNN once conducted a survey asking Americans which foods they missed the most while living abroad. #1 on the list was “Mexican food.” This did not surprise me. When was the last time that you enjoyed salsa or tortillas?

I was lucky. While I lived abroad, I had my fill of quesadillas, enchiladas, and tostadas. Not to mention access to a rich diversity of street food! Fresh squeezed mandarin orange juice, warm corn with chili powder and cheese, late night tamales, and gorditas. 

Because I value each and every one of my readers, I shared the wealth by posting some of my favorite recipes here and on my sister blog, Beyond Vitamin T. Enjoy, and ¡buen provecho!
