hmm well there was this kit thing that I just got and made but you can probably make it without buying the box of stuff so ya do you like turkey?I used ground turkey(I've been buying that lately instead of ground hamburger because it's cheaper and healthier.It tastes good too.)But ya what you do is brown about a pound of ground turkey then add a cup of water and a half a cup of milk and about 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine and a packet of taco seasoning.And add some pasta you can basically use any kind you want I used these thicker flater noodles but really whatever you want.You can also add a package of frozen corn or a can of corn and a can of black beans,bell peppers or really any other veggie that suits your fancy.You cook that on medium heat for about 8 mins or so until the pasta is tender then mix in about a cup of salsa a cup of crushed tortilla chips and put some cheese on top and let it sit for a couple minutes until the salsa warms up and there ya go um...mexican pasta stuff.....lol.I don't really know what to call it but it was good.
oh and if you wanted to you could use ground chicken instead of the ground turkey

cooked rice only has three days! three! count 'em!
my medicine student housemate is fond of telling me that you catch some gastro bug related to anthrax from old rice.

seriously? oh lovely...
lol really there goes my jumbalya leftovers.haha.But ya If I remember correctly from this dumb movie they showed us in my PLS class(home ec)then ya all the things TheBon said and you shouldn't leave cooked food out for more then a couple hours especially meats like chicken because you can get samonila and wash your hands after handling raw meat and never put cooked meat back on a plate or cutting board that raw meat was on.There are lots of bacteria and stuff that can spread and make you sick.But that video also might have been going overboard cause there was like this guy that was supposed to be like food poisoning and the girl in the movie got sick from eating food that was left out for a few hours...lol.But anyways enough of my rambling I hope you got something educational out of all that.haha.

There are a lot of interpretations of "mexican" cuisine in the u.s. For example, in California, burritos and tacos are seen as the pinnacle of mexican food, but from what i understand burritos (at least the way we make them) are not too common in mexico. Burritos are usually made with flour tortillas and are filled with rice, beans (usually pinto, black, or refried), and a variety of meats--carne asada (roasted meat), chicken, beef, or carnitas (a yummy pork concoction), and sometimes shredded cheese (cheddar, monterey jack, or mozzarella work well), sour cream, and guacamole (mashed avocadoes with lime juice, hot peppers, garlic, onion, and sometimes tomato). Tacos are usually made with smaller corn tortillas (and yes, you should heat them up so they get soft enough to bend without cracking), and feature many of the above fillings minus the rice and beans, which tend to be on the side.
A fabulous book on the diverse cuisines of mexico is diana kennedy's cuisines of mexico. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0060915617/sr=8-5/qid=1147398146/ref=pd_bbs_5/103-1740631-3961412?%5Fencoding=UTF8.   Kennedy's book shows that the different regions of mexico have wildly diverse flavors.
Some ingredients that you will likely need to cook mexican food: cilantro, avocado, limes, garlic, onions, beans, corn, hot peppers (such as jalapenos, habaneros and chipotles), hominy, various meats, for coastal cuisine you will likely need fish, scallops, or shrimp.
Sorry I don't have recipes exactly, but i hope this gets your imagination going at least!
Oh, and refried beans are traditionally cooked with lard.
Ya I don't really agree with the California thing I tinhk if you live close enough to the border you get a pretty good taste of what real mexican food tastes like.I live in the San Diego area and there are lots of real mexican food places that serve food just like what you mentioned before!

I wish blueberry's wern't so expensive!hehe but as soon as I can I'm gunna try to make these. Grin

I know! sometimes there are decent sales on them here but the price should come down some in summer/spring when they come in season.

Ya and my cousins up north have some bushes so when I go up to visit this summer I am gunna have to steal some!
