What Mexican Food Should I Order Next?
My neighbor cooks to order from her home kitchen. She hails recently from Mexico and speaks about ten English words total, which means I struggle to communicate with her. So far I've ordered whatever another neighbor from Mexico has suggested but the well's run dry. I've eaten her enchiladas, empanadas, taquitos, and tamales. Everything comes with tomato rice and refried beans. She appears to make mostly working class or home cookin' types of meals. I don't want to ask her to cook something she's unfamiliar with but I'm no expert on Mexican food. There is NO menu. So, any suggestions? What should I order next?
