Nacho Average Nachos


I had the pleasure of spending all last week in Mexico on vacation in the sunny, warm Riviera Maya town of Playa del Carmen. I know, poor me. Truth be told, we didn’t eat outside the resort often, because in an “all-inclusive” resort with all-you-can-eat and drink, why would you? However, we did venture into town one afternoon and enjoyed a couple of cervezas and a mucho grande plate of nachos con pollo.



While noshing through the nachos, I happened upon a giant pile of jalapenos, a pepper that I have typically avoided in the past. However, after this muy delicioso plate of nachos, I’ve realized that I really like jalapenos! Who knew? I will never pick around a jalapeno again. Maybe this will serve as inspiration to you to re-try a food you weren’t too sure you liked – your taste buds just might thank you!

And, P.S. – There was a really great story on CNN.com today about Playa del Carmen and the amazing ecological parks in the area, many of which we visited. Check it out if you’re interested in the area!

    Jalapenos!?! You’re brave. I was once told that taste buds undergo a significant change every seven years . . . I wonder if that’s true?! Maybe I should give them another shot.

    That would make sense — it’d probably been at least seven years since I’d gone near a jalapeno. Maybe your taste buds are now ready, too! 😉
