I love authentic French, Cuban, and Spanish (from Spain) food.

1. AMERICAN FOOD (more Amish/Heartland Style)
2. Caribbean Cuisine (Puerto Rican, Cuban, West Indian)
3. Middle Eastern Cuisine ( NY Jewish, Israeli, Arabic, Greek)
4. Indian Cuisine

All else comes next.

I could live without Mexican Food.

i wish there was an "all of the above". i love all of those types of food, and cannot pick one over the other. every time i try, i think of some other dish in another ethnicity that i love equally.

I grew up in Santa Barbara,which is at least 50% latino...thus, amazing Mexican food. Every August, is the Fiest Days, which is a 4 day celebration of latino heritage. There are parades, parties, etc..., down to drunk people with sarapes and sombreros on the rooftops (I kid you not). Anyway, I don't indulge in that part, but I do love how they have little food booths set up in different parks with great authentic food. You see little Mexican grandmas patting out the fresh tortillas, and the avocado skins piled high from all the guacamole - aaahhhhh! I will always adore this food!!
However, I now love Italian just as much. We are priviliged enough to have many Italian restaurants around here. My fav is a tiny family owned spot that for $11.95 you get a great entree, pasta fagioli, huge salad and tons of italian bread. For another buck-fifty, you get a second entree. That's what I do

I love Middle Eastern and Greek food. Italian and French and German, etc. are also great. Guess I'll eat anything that is not moving on the plate.

:D It's mexican food for me... I always make my own home-made enchaladas.

1 pkg corn tortillas
1 large onion, diced
cheddar cheese, grated
1 to 2 cans of enchalada sauce
cooking oil

In skillet heat oil. In another skillet heat enchalada sauce. Take corn tortillas 1 at a time and place in heated cooking oil just to soften, then dip corn tortilla into enchalada sauce. Put corn tortilla on a plate and fill center with desired amount of diced onion and grated cheese and fold both sides over and lay flat in baking pan, seam side down. When you have finished getting all of the corn tortillas filled and layed out (side be side) in the baking pan, pour a little extra enchalada sauce over all and then sprinkle extra grated cheese over top of enchaladas. When this has all been completed cover baking pan as to not let the enchaladas dry out while bakeing. Bake enchaladas in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove enchaladas from oven and let set for about 10 to 15 minutes then serve.

Tweedee - I'm an enchilada fan, myself! Cheese and Onion rock! But I really, really, really want to encourage you to make your enchilada sauce from scratch. It makes all the difference in the world. Those canned sauces are so full of preservatives and fillers and taste like the tin they are stored in. Fresh enchilada sauce will make you fall in love with enchiladas all over again!
