Growing local

Wrapped in a corn tortilla of course!
So easy.
Chopped up prickly pear paddles with diced spring onion greens...
Then add and scramble the eggs.
Everything -- 'cept the (corn) masa -- from outback.
Herein my tummy gets things it loves heaps: tacos, nopales...and spring onions.
And yes, I grated some cheese on top.

We also embrace Many Cuisine Styles. Mexican also being one of our favourites, up there with Indian, Moroccan, Chinese & Vietnamese (true Chinese (with lots of spice) & Vietnamese), Summer Salads (just love fruit and vegetables), French Peasant Food & Italian (making & using our own homemade pasta).

Let's face it I love to cook and love to try different flavours and spices, so am always keen for new ideas to trial.

I do jump about from cuisine to cuisine, but of those I've embraced I'm (for now) settling on Mexican because it lends itself to low carbohydrate eating. Also it is easily consumed  wheat and gluten free.

I still eat other favs -- Turkish, Korean or Sri Lankan -- but Mexican is becoming a  bit of a passion and I've hardly ventured much beyond tortillas.

It also suits our growing climate and Masa-- nixtamalized  corn flour  -- keeps well.

So easy to make a quick, nutritious and tasty dish with ingredients to hand.

Heaven for me would be eating tacos every night. I'd live on them -- them and umami soups.

We had Yucatan steamed chicken with tortillas last night. You steam the chicken pieces in wrapped banana leaves. I loved Asian style steamed chicken -- but Yucatan style has a great taste hit.

And so soft and moist.

As I've said before, when we eat Sri Lankan the tacos pass the test as 'corn' roti.
