Enchiladas Suizas

Enchiladas Suizas

Mexican food. I crave it.

But so many of the Mexican restaurants around here just don’t cut it. There’s one in particular, well-known by college students for their Margarita specials, that I dread going to with friends because it means a $12 plate of sub-par enchiladas suizas (my favorite) next to a sad pile of rice and brown blob of refried beans.

Give me better Mexican food! For $7 in California, I can get amazing enchiladas suizas with the best rice and beans you’ve ever had.

Don’t tolerate bad Mexican food!

Make your own.

Sweet Potato Burritos with Avocado Salsa Verde

When I get sick, I have the strangest appetite. I can remember being sick with an awful flu for over a week when I was in 5th grade. I hardly ate anything but saltines, but when my health was on the uptick towards the end of it, the only thing I wanted was chocolate cupcakes. Nothing but chocolate cupcakes. Not vanilla cupcakes, not even regular chocolate cake. Nothing else sounded good! My mom made a special trip to the grocery store and bought me a 12-pack of cupcakes because she was happy I was feeling up to eating anything at all.

Last week I came down with the flu again. The only thing I wanted to eat? Thai food. I ordered my favorite pad ke mao and basil fried rice, and rode out the illness with the comfort of my leftovers. The doctor asked what I’d been eating, and she looked at me like I was crazy, but commended that I was getting the salt that my body needed. When you’re sick, you’ve just got to give the body what it wants.

When you’re healthy, you still should give your body what it wants. And trust me, it wants these sweet potato burritos covered in a tangy, slightly spicy avocado salsa verde.
