In the Bowling Lane and guide to Mexican Food

We went bowling yesterday , This was a informal meet up the company had arranged for all the folks . I must say it was fun . I am bowling after a long time and One thing I realized is I am so much out of shape . My arm is practically gone . So plan is to get back in shape . So soon I guess I will be joining the weight watchers squad is a YMCA nearby , They have a nice pool . Swimming was one of my favorite.. past time /exercise .
After that we had some nice Mexican food at Gracias , Some Fajitas and enchiladas.. If you are quite New to Mexican food . Here is a handy guide

A great entrée, guacamole is an avocado-based dip that is green, fairly rich and is made with some onions, lemon, lime juice, and chopped garlic. Complementary dips are salsa and sour cream.

A taco is a large, crisp, edible corn tortilla shell that usually contains minced beef, shredded lettuce, grated cheese, and is commonly topped off with salsa, sour cream or guacamole.

Tacos comes in different types

Original Taco -- a crisp corn tortilla filled with seasoned beef, shredded lettuce and shredded cheddar cheese. This is also called Hard Shell

Soft Taco -- a warm soft flour tortilla filled with seasoned shredded lettuce and shredded cheddar cheese.

You can choose roasted chicken, steak or beef as your filling.

Chicken/Beef/Veg FAJITAS

Fajitas are a grilled marinated chicken/Beef/Vegetables, roasted onions and peppers, tomatoes, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses with seasoned rice and fajita sauce, in a warm soft flour tortilla.

Fajitas : Spanish word for Beef Strips!!

Bean/Chicken/Beef BURRITO

A burrito consists of an edible soft flour tortilla "envelope," wrapped around and stuffed with minced beef, lettuce, cheese, refried beans, sauce, sour cream? you get the idea.


A chimichanga is basically a burrito that is deep-fried and very, very succulent -- if you don't mind greasy food that is


Enchiladas are quite similar to burritos, yet differ in content and flavor.

While a tortilla is folded in order to make an envelope that completely encloses its contents, an enchilada has the tortilla wrapped around the substance, so as to make a cylinder with much the same shape as cannelloni, uncut maki, or sushi rolls.

That ends the Mexican food tutorial and I am off to bed..
