For the past couple of weeks, Jeremy has been talking about making mexican dishes that he had during his 2-year LDS mission to Monterrey, Mexico.  He has been dying to make something, so this last weekend, he decided that he was going to do it.  On Saturday evening, we went to the grocery store and picked up all the needed ingredients:  Chorizo (mexican sausage), lard, and pinto beans.  We got ambitious and decided to make our own tortillas and refried beans. 

And I made some delicious salsa....

This is the Chorizo.  It is a sausage you squeeze out of the package.  When it cooks, it smells very spicy and lets off some pretty nasty looking grease.  The sausage cooks down to little bits and pieces.  We mixed in 8 eggs and made it a scrambled egg chorizo mix.  It went great with the salsa and beans.

Little did we know how long this would take.  Basically, we started Sunday morning and didn't get to eat until 2:00 that afternoon.  But it was delicious!  You put the beans, chorizo/egg mixture, and salsa on a plate and eat it with the tortilla as a fork.  I didn't get any pictures of the final product, because we ate it so fast!  By the way, these pictures all came from my new cell phone.  They look great! 

**I'll be posting recipes later after I figure out all the little details to my blog posts and things.  Hopefully you can try this delicious Mexican meal!
