There are a lot of great Mexican dishes that we know how to make, but a lot that were still left to try. I think we could do this a dozen more times, just from the ideas we still have in mind.
And, in the end, I was just looking for an excuse to eat churros.
Food Fact from Jenny:
The Spanish colonies brought new cooking methods, ideas and ingredients to the traditional Mexican food. One popular ingredient among many of these dishes is Chili: one of the most important ingredients of the food from Mexico since ages. [source]

Preppin’ for Mexican night. A playlist called “Mexican Cantina” is blaring in the background, beers are opened. We are ready.
Our dinner, hours in the making.

A whole, bone-in chicken cooking in the mole sauce over the stove.
Bitter, unsweetened chocolate being stirred into the sauce. We all tried a piece, to confirm that it was bitter, unsweetened chocolate.
It took it’s sweet time to cook through, but it came out looking just as we wanted.
Jenny put up with a lot of onions this time. She’s a brave girl, and she stood strong.
A fresh corn salad, drizzled with salt and lime. It was our favorite…. No, wait. Churros were better. Mmmm.
Jenny and Anne, working as a team to fry up the churros.
They loved their work, and it showed.
If there’s one thing we have learned from Meal Ticket, it’s that the entire world loves it’s food to be fried.
Eric had the honored task of finishing the churros in cinnamon sugar.
This was the last time they were seen. Breaks my heart to think about how long it’s been since they’ve disappeared from my life.
It was a delicious night.
