    Myself and two friends are entered in an “Iron Chef” competition at our school, and our theme is “Mexico”. We have to use 200grams of chicken, 2 vegetables, 1 fruit, and a native starch to Mexico. Not being Mexican myself, i was wondering what type of dishes that are unique, and that can WOW the judges.
    Any suggestion? Nothing overly hard, there are only 3, and we only have an hour, and we’re going to practice, but likely only once due to time constraints. Please and Thanks!

    I’ve been craving a good Mexican salad with pork barbecoa, rice, beans (not refried), a homemade soft tortilla, and that yummy creamy tomatilla dressing. Yummm!

    Does any one have a recipe for a mexican/taco salad that uses kidney beans, western dressing and doritos? I know this sounds pretty simple, but I’m the type of person who prefers something to go on. : )

    Also, do you have to cook canned kidney beans before serving them? This is for a cold salad to bring to a pot luck type of event.

    Thanks so very much!!
    ps: There are supposed to be 30-50 people attending.

    I’m doing a report on Mexican cusine, and I need to know how the Mexicans prepare their food.
    . What is the focus of meal planning? – size, number of courses; What types of specialized equipment does this culture use in preparation or presentation of foods?

    We just moved and they don’t carry that stuff around here and it’s something I just can’t live without.
    So is there a way I can make Mexican and Cajun seasonings myself here at home?
    Thank You!
    WOW I am really impressed by all the help everyone of you have given to me.
    Thank You so much for all your help and information on how to make my favorite spices.
    You guys are the greatest!

    What is a salad or a side dish that you have made that you think EVERYONE should try?!

    Im looking for something new that I’ve never tried!

    Please no fish or pork.

    I am going in a couple minutes and I just don’t know what to get, I don’t want to get something that is full of calories and fat. I can get a salad with cilantro dressing but I always get that when I go there, I would like to try something different.

    do you have a recipe for mexican potato salad? I want one that uses sour cream and butter. I prefer it to be a cold salad. thanks

    I’ve searched for the nutrional facts of “Acapulco’s mexican restaurant and cantina”, but I just can’t find it; does anybody know approximately how many calories are in the Mexican chicken caesar salad? the dressing is so creamy I’m thinking it’s high on calories.

    Or do you think the Mexican-flaired soup is too much of a repetition with the enchiladas? Thanks!

    Delicious! Went down really well. 5 out 5. Didn’t use the tortillas and served all together in a big dish instead of dividing.
