Burrito carts are incredibly common in my part of the world and the standard fare weighs about 1.5 pounds. Mucho gordo burrito!

Lucky you ... no such luck here

The French cannot do "Mexican", "Tex-Mex" nor "BB-Q" ... quite a sad state of affairs.

What's wrong with this one ... it's in Paris. (Image stolen from Web)

Uhh - Indiana is a little far from Texas - or for that matter, Mexico. Jeebus, Indiana can't even claim neighborhood, like say Oklahoma or New Mexico or Arizona.

Funny thing - the Old El Paso brand of 'Mexican' food was started right here in St. Louis by the family of my best friend. The company has been around for 140 years making baking ingredients and Mexican food was intended to be a growth segment. It got so big they sold the company for a bazillion dollars. Who'd a'thought a bunch of German-descended midwesterners from the once-largest-city-West-of-Philadelphia would know anything about Mexican.

You could try to educate and train them to do proper BBQ.
Never mind...forget it, chances of that working out would be like attempting to train Godzilla to sit

I should know better than to look in here first thing in the morning. Now I am craving a bacon, egg, & cheese burrito... I have everything but the tortillas. The hociR must have raided my kitchen.
If you think that's good, try a bacon, egg, cheese and lutefisk wrap. Mmmm, mmm good!

We're in the same boat here with regard to Mexican or Tex-Mex. "Mexican" food is anything that involves a tortilla, and on rare ocassions may be spiced such that you can actually taste it. People around here call baked beans with ground beef Chili. (seriously)

I was raised not to turn my nose up at something I had never tried. I'm not sure that applies in this case... Guess I'll figure that part out if the opportunity ever arises.

It sounds much worse than it tastes...I think...

Certainly goes down better with bacon, lots of bacon, lots and lots of bacon.

I will never understand buttermilk. Kefir, that's another story, that stuff's GOOD, buttermilk - not so much..
although buttermilk can be used to make crème fraîche, so not all is lost

I'll be down in central Mexico next week, so maybe I'll have a burrito.
Just don't drink the water . . . . .

So sneaky!

But I wanna drive all of those cars. Actually, I've already driven many Porsche models, including the GT3.

On a racing course.

At speeds exceeding 3 times the speed limit in the US.

Oh yeah!!!!
