Let's Dish: What's Your Favorite Mexican Food?

All this margarita talk has got me craving Mexican food! While I love a delicious bowl of guacamole and an addictive queso, my all-time favorite Mexican dish is tacos. Salmon tacos, beef tacos, chicken tacos — I don't discriminate against certain proteins. Hard tacos, soft tacos: what's not to love about this versatile dish that can be filled and topped with an endless array of ingredients? On the eve of National Margarita Day, I want to know: what's your preferred order at a Mexican restaurant?

I can't pick just one or even 2! I love hard tacos made with beans (veggie), nachos, enchiladas, tamales... *drools all over keyboard*

While it used to be burritos, I have to go with enchiladas now. I very much prefer flour tortillas, but I have to eat gluten-free now.

Enchiladas! I'm gluten free, so Mexican food makes my heart sing for all the corn flour they use instead of white/wheat flour.

Chimichangas - but I think that's more Tex-Mex. Carnitas tacos are so good.

I love chimichangas. Not sure of their authenticity, but I sure do love them.

Black bean, corn and cheddar enchiladas. Worth the trouble! I love Mexican, so many great vegetarian options.

Tamales, but its probably because I only have them once a year. After that I think it would be carnitas or fajitas. Mexican is definitely my favorite food.

Carnitas would have to be my favorite, followed closely by Shrimp Fajitas.

Mexican food is my absolute favorite food. Seriously, I should have just been born in Mexico! The first meal I ever wanted to learn to cook was chorizo tostadas! Still one of my very favorites! I love tacos too. The only thing I've tried that I didn't like was menudo. I'm really not a tripe kinda gal. :)

Carnitas! The crispy, tender, flavorful kind, in soft corn tortillas. Yum.

Oh, dear. This is too hard. I don't know if I can answer it. I think I'd have to go for queso. I just can't ever say no.

Oh I totally forgot, I also have a thing for nachos, but let's classify those as my favorite Tex-Mex dish!
