You doctor up your Spanish rice a lot? I make some cubed homefries and season them with taco seasoning, add them with the rice, peppers, onions and tomatoes. 

Not really. I sautee onion and garlic in oil, then add the rice and fry it. Add a can of tomato sauce and water. Add some pepper, garlic powder, chicken bouillon and tomato bouillon. That's it. Don't need to add salt, due to the two bouillons. When I make fajitas, I season them with garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper. Mexican food doesn't really call for cumin. American Mexican food does. I'm not big on cumin, so when I make authentic Mexican food, I don't use it. But if you crack open a frozen Mexican meal, that's all you taste.

I haven't made mexican in months. I used to have some sort of mexican meal weekly. Most of the meat I have though right now is venison, and I don't want to mask the taste of deer with a lot of spices. Been thinking about smoking a pork butt/loin then finishing it covered with some beer, bell peppers, garlic, and onions making some carnitas. Add some black beans and spanish rice, damn now I'm hungry >_<;

Aside from eggs, hash, sausage, and toast I really haven't cooked much this week. Have that surgery coming up in a couple of weeks to remove the rest of that skin cancer on my head. Think it's just been affecting my drive and attention to cook meats. I love meat too much to not give it my 100% undivided attention.

So how'd it turn out?

That's twice he said there would be pics and didn't deliver now, so I'm gonna assume they looked like this.


but not as nice looking because the box is always a lie, prepared in the toaster oven of course.
