I've been surrounded by Mexican food for 6 years but I don't know what to do with it. I tried the restaurant around the corner but it was like eating pure salt. Louie (American/Mexican) tells me I chose the worst of the lot.

I think I'll just learn to make my own taco dough and stick with my Americanized taco recipe. Why would anyone "refry" anything?

My wife is a "southerner" She loves those chicken & dumpling. I found it to be bland, mushy, and yuck! I used to dump salsa all over my eggs. And mac & cheese that everybody is so goofy over . . .I gotta hit it with catsup. This egg stuff I eat now, "egg beaters" is good slopped together with pinto beans or turky sausage with Santa Cruz's chorizo mix in it.

Try getting a corn tortilla, (not a taco shell) warm it up on the stove top. Fill it with baked Tilapia (pescado/fish) put some 2% Mexican blend graded cheese, some PicoPica and lots of shredded cabbage. it's a healthier way of tacos pescados (fish tacos) Each tortilla is approx 80-100 cals so all together maybe 170/200 cals per taco is a stretch.

dumpling's attraction eludes me too. Just another excuse to add empty carbs IMO.

Thanks for the recipe. I priced tilapia just recently. what a rip. That fist is farmed because it's cheap & easy to grow tons of them but now you'd think it was brook trout from high mountain streams.

I'll shop around because I'd like fresh water fish in my diet. I just need to be careful fish aren't salt water because the iodine & I don't mix well.

Wheat Tortillas

2 cups wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup Crisco
about 1 & 1/4 cups WARM water


Mix together crisco, flours and salt

Slowly add water to dough consistancy (may or may not take all wtr)

knead and make into 10 to 12 balls
coat hands in veggie oil and lightly coat balls
roll out (may need a little flour to keep from sticking)

Skillet, Gridle needs to be HOT at start.
cook about a minute or two on each side.
I'm done buying them.

if you couldn't get past the "coat" part, it means you were PLAYING with them and you've ruined your tortillas.

Funny, that's the part I was done with before I started.
