I absolutely LOVE Mexican food....so much so that whenever I am in a fight with New York City, I think of packing up, moving to a random mid-Western city and opening a hole-in-the wall Mexican Joint (this fantasy has never been divulged before). I love experiementing with the many peppers used in Mexican cooking, as well as adding spices and playing with different meats in each dish. Using various tortillas/Nachos/Taco Shells as a vehicle to eat these delicious foods just makes it even better.....I'm not sure there's anything better than a Nacho....I mean really.....
So the other day when I posted my Chicken Pot Pie Recipe, a good friend of mine, JP, told me I should make a Mexican Pot Pie. Uhhhh Why Didn't I think of this?!?! So instead of using a Pot Pie Crust, I used my all incredible Burrito Tortillas....I made a layered pie filled with meat, beans, peppers and onions in a tomato based sauce and topped it with melty Cheddar Cheese, Scallions Tomatoes and Sour Cream.
This isn't exactly on the list of foods you should eat everyday if you're trying to stick to that New Years Resolution....but I don't care....I will suffer through a 2 hour work out at the gym just to eat Mexican food everyday.
