    It's just around the corner.  What are you cooking up - your favorites?

    Admittedly, Mexican cuisine is not one of my favorites.  Inspire me.

    I made carnitas burritos for a special today, shredded jack, seasoned rice, Peruvian beans, tomatillo avocado salsa, cilantro & onion all wrapped up in a 14" flour tortilla.

    Sometimes I will also add finely diced cabbage.

    I made tacos. I used Mrs. Dash's taco blend rather than the usual Penzeys taco seasoning blend because I'm trying to cut down on sodium. It was really pretty good, and I added just a pinch of Kosher salt to it. My husband thought it was a bit zestier than our usual, but I thought it was more flavorful, not just salty. He was actually tasting the seasonings, not just salt. I loaded mine with cilantro. Yum.
