Mexican Food is my weakness

Do you have one food that is your favorite? Monika from Monika's Corner asked the question today to have people tell her what their favorite food is. Well, it got me to thinking and it made me hungry but I decided that I basically love food from most countries, but I would have to say that my two favorites are Mexican and Italian. No surprise that my favorite restaurants are Chilis and Olive Garden. I also like American Food like steaks, hamburgers, hotdogs and even those foods that are filled with carbs like Macaroni and Cheese. Now that I'm doing my diet, I find myself trying to find foods that I can eat that are on my diet but also still fill my food cravings. Mexican Food is the one food that I absolutely can't live without. I would say that my all time favorite food would have to be Bean and Cheese burritos with Enchilada sauce. I used to get them all the time at Tumbleweed when I lived up North. Due to my low carb diet, I can no longer eat those so I found myself trying to fill my cravings by being a little creative. Last weekend, I poured half a can of Enchilada Sauce over 2 chicken breasts, sprinkled a little Mexican Cheese on it and popped it in the oven for about an hour. After an hour, I took it out and added just a little more cheese and popped it back in the over for just a few more minutes. It was wonderful and now I have been craving that all week. Basically I would have to say that any kind of Mexican food is my favorite food.
