Yes We (mexi)Can! *Day 2*January 27, 2009
Total cost about $10
Day two of F.A.F.P.F., and things are getting really crazy around here. We’re trying to cover a lot of bases,while being extremely generic, and of course, cheap. When I used to live in Hawaii, a friend of my brothers named Phillip would come over to eat sometimes. He was pretty much the most annoying kid ever made, but made a nice punching bag for a bunch of 9 year olds. He was extremely white, had these huge thick glasses, and olive oil hair. One night when he was coming over he was telling us which Mexican food he liked. He was attempting to talk in his most authentic Mexican accent. Saying things like, “i love tooohstaadas, and enchillaaaadas, and taaccoos (pronounced ta-hoes). From that point on, every time we ate Mexican (he pronounced it meh–hee-can), it was right to the Phillip impersonations, and I’m proud to say I still do. Nothing like a little laugh at someone else’s expense.
The rice was made from 1 1/2 cups of white rice, chopped roma tomatoes, chopped bell peppers, garlic, cumin, ancho chili powder, chipotle sauce, tomato sauce, and salt to taste. The tostadas had re-fried beans at the bottom, FYH cheese, tvp (seasoned meh–hee-can style), lettuce, and tomatoes. They were fried on a stove top skillet, in some olive oil. On top was chipotle a sour cream, (vegan sour cream, chipotle sauce, drop of alegro, garlic powder, salt, ancho chili powder, nutritional yeast, and lime juice) and some salsa. Also on the side is just some re-fried beans with lettuce and tomatoes.
