Last weekend I got to try 3 of the following dishes from La Paloma: Sopa de Fideo, beef tostada Combination plate, and Machaca con huevos. Sopa de Fideo is a popular Mexican soup that is simple yet flavorful. It’s a creamy tomato soup with thin noodles and vegetables like carrots, celery, tomatoes. The Beef tostada is a fried corn tortilla topped with refried beans, meat, tomato, lettuce,
There were plain tamales, tamales with red, green, yellow, black chile, and tamales with chocolate. There’s a lot of varieties and inventive ways of preparing and making tamales. Everything depends on the persona and how they want to make them, the size, colors and shapes carried almost as much as fillings. The wrappings are made of corn husks, banana
I just want to figure out what is so great about these two places, and figure out how they are the same, and how they are different. There are many people in the world that are in love with Chipotle. They even have there own chipotle rewards card because they go there so much. So, lately I visited Chipotle, and I tried out all of their signature food that people are always raving about. First off I tried their signature guacamole, which I have to say was very appealing to my
Growing up in a Mexican household, the food we ate always had a spice to it. Whether the spice was on the side or already prepared in the food, my food always had a spice to it. My grandma’s favorite signature spice was her Pico De Gallo. Pico de Gallo also called salsa Fresca, is made from chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, fresh Serrano’s (jalapeños or habaneros are used as alternatives), salt, and key lime juice. At first I did not like Pico de Gallo because I couldn’t bear how spicy it was.
Starting the New Year in January of 2001, a lawsuit that involved several people sued Taco Bell, stating that Taco bell chain adds extra meat fillers in their “seasoned beef” instead of real ground beef. To be exact the accusation said taco bell’s meat was “taco meat filling”. They stated it consists of extenders and other non-meat grains and the “seasoned beef” in its tacos and burritos was made up of 35 percent beef. Another problem was that taco bell also betrayed customers but it violated federal requirements by advertising “taco meat filing” as beef. Taco Bell serves an estimated amount of customers of over 35 million a week.
Making Tamales The tamale, also known as the tamalii, is popular throughout parts of the world. The tamale gets its meaning “wrapped food” from the corn husks, which surrounds the outside of the tamale. Though nobody knows when or who invented the tamale it is said to have been traced as far back as 5000 BC and were served as battle food for the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas soldiers. Today, tamales are often served on special occasions such as Day of the Dead, New Years, Christmas and other holidays. The three main components of the tamale are: the carnita, masa, and hoja de maiz.
Another difference on Taco and Burrito is wrapping ingredient. Both Taco and Burrito were wrapped by Tortillas. The Tortillas of Taco is small and made by corn so it can be called "corn Tortillas". Burrito is wrapped by flour Tortillas instead of cord Tortillas because corn Tortillas is easy to crack and it should be bigger that the Taco's Tortillas.
Who wins the battle between Mexican or American tacos? Some may argue that Mexican Tacos have more variety of meats to choose from and more healthier because they are fresh since they are not frozen like the ground beef. Other may think that Appropriated tacos are better because they are cheaper and easy to cook or get and might not see a difference between Mexican Tacos. In my opinion both tacos are good, but if I had to choose between Mexican tacos or American tacos I would choose Mexican tacos there is just more variety to choose from they are always fresh and they have an overall better taste . I also have to stay loyal to Mexican tacos because I am Mexican, but it all depends on who you are are and what you
