What is the most disgusting food you have ever eaten? What made it so gross?
Before I begin, I want you to keep in mind that I grew up on the border. Authentic Mexican dishes are practically an object or worship for me. The only things larger than my standards are my cravings. Over time, I've developed new and innovative ways to enjoy them. Want some tips? I'll give you some tips! Archer Farms (yes, the Target brand) has these remarkable microwavable chile cheese hot tamales. Amy's Organic Foods has equally fantastic cheese enchiladas (the sauce is to die for). Macayo's taco sauce with sour cream and shreaded colby jack cheese on a baked potato is one of my favorite snacks. Hell, even jalapeno sauce mixed with sour cream makes a great dip with hot Tostito's (restaurant style, please!) Oh, and before I went veg, I have to admit, the chicken burrito from Taco Bell is better than anything from any Mexican grill in North America. But- this is where, I'm getting at, where there is good there is bad.
There is a resteraunt in the St. Louis area which shall remain nameless. Because they are all pretty bad! But this place... Here's a hint if you're a buddy from class who got this link from me: college town, by Target, across the street from the big house that always has antique cars out on the lawn. They have a chile relleno on their menu and let me tell you, it is like taking a bite out of a filthy, old, sponge that has been rotting away in toilet water for forty years. It is disgusting. I actually spat it back out into my napkin and refused to touch anything else the entire evening. So take a hint from a born and raised kid from Southern Arizona, you're better off buying a three dollar burrito from Taco Bell.
Oh, and don't get me started on the guacamole at that place by the university. Yeah, by the Mc. Donald's and H & R Block. You don't need cilantro and red onions in everything, if anything, it makes it even more untouchable. I was a longtime customer of the most remarkable little place in Arizona, if you're even in the area local.yahoo.com/info-20096085-ricardo-s-mexican-restaurant-hereford
GO THERE! Or you know what, plan a trip to the area just for the sake of going there. I think it has four stars? Give me a break, take my word for it. Order a Number Five. Completely vegetarian and completely... the best thing ever. Anyway, cilantro and red onions are unheard of there. Yup. I miss it. ='(
