Tortillas, Tomatillos, and Refried Beans
I made a new discovery! I learned (sort of) how to make homemade flour tortillas! I am so excited! They don't turn out very round yet, but they taste sooo good and they don't have all those preservatives in them! Hubby made homemade refried beans. I don't know why they are called refried beans, tho. They're not fried at all! Anyway, they were soooo easy and taste good too. The tricky part is getting the right blend/balance of spices. Then, we tried tomatillos. Now folks, this is one of the most delicious veggies I have ever tried. Even the kid loved them. They taste like a blend of green apple, kiwi, cucumber? They are crisp and cool. I will be adding them to salads, salsas, and other veggie dishes. YUM. You've just got to try them. They are a great Mexican staple, so they will go great with all my Mexican dishes.
