I LOVE me some Mexican style food! Nachos, Enchiladas, Quesadillas, and who could forget TACOS!? Chips and Salsa are not just a snack, they have been my meal more than one occasion! I could eat Mexican food almost every day 🙂 However, I AM a WIMP. I can’t have salsa any hotter than mild, whether store bought or in restaurant.
The time I wasn’t paying attention when I ordered my enchiladas still haunts me. I normally get the Enchiladas Monterey with a nice red enchilada sauce or some sour cream from our local authentic restaurant. Well I wasn’t thinking and ordered the Enchiladas Verde. BIG DIFFERENCE! That verde sauce was HOT I was sweating and guzzling down my water trying to eat my meal. My Dad was very entertained by this. He had apparently been impressed I had ordered the verde, until he realized I had done it on accident. He smiled at me after my first bite and said, “Is that hot?” I ate the enchiladas though; they were good and I definitely drank my fair share of water that day! Since then I pay very close attention to what I am ordering 🙂
