Since I can finally eat beans, I agreed. We found a restaurant nearby, and it even sold cheeseburgers! (That's important because my dad doesn't eat Mexican food. I had to get my picky-ness from somewhere!)
So everyone was seated around the table. I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. This was a huge gamble. I took a deep breath and reached for some tortilla chips to help settle my nerves. I saw my dad dip the chips in the salsa. I didn't remember him liking salsa.
"I don't mind it if the salsa is mild."
Not really a gamble. Just a leap of faith.
So I decided to brave the scary, red sauce. I dipped my chip in the salsa. And it was spicy!! That's what I get for trusting a man who likes mild curry.
The chips and salsa were free, so I wasn't losing much by trying them. Just taste buds. My main course would definitely be a gamble. I went with cheese enchiladas in a red sauce. There was no description of the sauce, and I was wagering actual money on whether or not I would be able to eat this meal.
Here's my hand. Hopefully a safe bet?
I wiped the onions off the top. Raw onions are still not going to happen for a good long time. I cut off a small bit of enchilada and went all in.
The red sauce had very little flavor, just lightly tomato, and it wasn't spicy at all! Cheese is always delicious. I slowly came to a realization. I liked this meal! I enjoyed this meal at an actual Mexican restaurant! My family was so proud!
Definitely going back again. And can't wait to hit up La Cabaña and finally get more than a margarita! Too bad Iowa is so far....
