    Thanks so much for this. I know very little about Mexican food so this is all very interesting and useful for me. I especially love the sound of those pork enchiladas!

    Wow what a varied fantastic selection of Mexican food. If I was at a restaurant, I would have a terrible time figuring out what to have. But I have been craving fish tacos lately, so that would probably be the bingo in this line up.
