Article Excerpt:

Tonight I had a rare and unusual craving for Mexican food.  I've never really been the hugest fan of Mexican food, probably only because my exposure to it has been limited to the overly greasy, processed American version.  It always left me feeling awful, probably also because I'm allergic and intolerant to most of the staples of Mexican cuisine.

Either way, I wanted nothing more tonight than to sit down to a Mexican feast. I don't know if it was the random heat wave or what, but I wanted a spicy south-of-the-border meal.  But I hadn't soaked rice. I hadn't soaked beans. I didn't have tortillas, avocado or salsa-like substances. It was 9 pm. I was hungry.
