I love homemade salsa. In fact, I struggle with store-bought salsa. Partially because of the unnecessary price tag, but mostly because it’s always a letdown. Especially when I go to any number of Mexican restaurants and they have delicious salasa. It can’t be that hard to make, right? My friend Michelle told me her favorite recipe is Pioneer Woman’s Restaurant Style Salsa. I figured it was a good place to start. And with very few tweeks have come up with my own favorite and simple homemade salsa.

Aye! Aye! Aye!

I’d driven by El Rodeo regularly on my way home from class and always look longingly, dreaming of cheese dip. Well, one Sunday, I finally realized the dream. I tend to have Mexican food cravings on Sundays. So keep that in mind, friends. I’m always in for Mexican food on Sundays!

El delicioso yummo!

Felipe’s is hardly a new or unknown spot in Wichita. And I already talked about it in my west Wichita patio review, but a few Sundays ago I had a particularly moving experience at Felipe’s. It was a “morning after” and I was having a vicious craving for Mexican food and caffeine. And I ended up at Felipe’s.

At this rate, tomorrow will be a “morning after,” too…

I FINALLY got to eat at The Anchor! I am taunted on a daily basis by tweets of their specials, but hadn’t had a chance to get in there and actually eat. At this point I was worried when I actually went I’d be disappointed (because being overly anxious often leads to letdown with me). Nope. The entire experience was great. And not just because I got to have lunch with my sister, Kristy, and Godson, Luke.

Sweet potato fries. Oooh La La!

This post is about nachos. And only about nachos. Be forewarned. I’ll make it short and sweet. If you want to get delicious nachos on the cheap, anytime of day, go to Alejandro’s. Most of those 24-hour fast food Mexican places like Rene’s, Mexican Burrito, etc. don’t have cheese dip. And the chain fast food Mexican places like Taco Bell, Taco Pronto, Taco Bueno, etc. don’t have very good nachos. But Alejandro’s not only has 24 hour at your beck and call nacho service, but they’re delicious. And you can get a gigantic serving for $3.

Yes. Go.

Nachos with jalapenos. Más por favor.

See more pictures after the jump…

I like my Mexican food like I like my hookers, fast and cheap. Too far? OK, I’ve never done anything with a prosty. And I guess at least they’re earning a living. But, what I DO like and DO have a lot of experience with is Mexican food. I’d eat it every freaking day if 1. I didn’t swear it off every time I ate it because I over-eat and 2. I wouldn’t get as fat as Gilbert Grape’s mom. Too far again? I can’t ever tell. I mean, come on, the poor woman was fat enough they had to put reinforcements in the basement to hold her and burn the house down after she died. Sad? Yes. But do I want to be her? No. So I try to limit my Mexican intake. Both food and boys. OK. That was tacky.

I like my salsa like I like my boys: Hot and spicy. Aye! Aye! Aye!

When I saw where La Posada was on the map and did a “street view,” I immediately remembered passing it when there was a lot of construction on Kellogg and I got off at Oliver. So I was excited to try it out. I sent my sister, Karla, a text and she said she’d seen it several times, too, and wanted to try it. Booyah! Bring on the Mexican food! Arriba!
