Ed -- Did they make their own tortillas?

That has become an obession of mine here in Charlotte. None -- and I mean NONE -- of the Mex-Central Am joints that I've tried or heard about, make their own flour tortillas.

Fresh tortillas are an amazing treat -- you could smear shoe polish on them and they'd still taste pretty good.

Ed Cone

Hmm. Not sure, which may mean no...I was focused on the other fresh ingredients and good white meat chicken, and a really good salsa.

Still seemed more Americanized Tex/Mex...laughed on my way back to the office when I passed a sign saying Moe's chain has the best Mexican in town...

Yea, When you look at the "bright side" of the Mexican invasion I guess having all that great mexican food does kinda balance out the increased health care burden and cost, increased education system costs, increased insurance costs, displaced local workers and loss or revenue, and increased crime......gee, thanks for reminding me or that...don't know why I never realized how important those benefits really are to the overall good of our society !

Is the better tasting Mexican food worth the increase in crime? I for one think not. Calling the illegals "undocumented aliens" is the same as calling drug dealers "uncertified pharmacists".

There are a couple of interesting studies linking immigration with a reduction in crime: here and here. According to many psychologists involved in dual diagnosis and/or self medication studies, in some ways drug dealers aren't too far from your definition.

Wow, that's some ugly stuff coming through here.

I wasn't sure what I'd find when I went looking, but it looks like immigrants commit no more crimes than citizens (other than immigrating illegally, of course):
