Here's a quick fact about me... I Love Mexican food. I could eat it every meal for the rest of my life. So as you can see, I was really excited about this dish. Many times, I have tried (and failed) to make homemade Mexican food. Somehow this time was different... This food was absolutely amazing! I highly encourage you to try it out.
