People who think Taco Bell is Mexican food don't know that real Mexican food is as different as the cooks who make it. Your abuelita's pot of beans is not my abuelita's pot of beans because everyone's recipe is different.

A family friend thought it was weird that we heat tortillas over the gas flame on the stove - the only proper way to heat a tortilla. That led to Mike telling us what "miga" means in the Rio Grande Valley and what he thinks of chilaquiles. I don't think I'll ever eat those things again!
