Mexican Skillet

You guys know that I love Mexican food.  Ive been having cravings for it lately, especially with my (future) father in law coming into town this past week.  We were talking about varying cuisines and our shared love for the deliciousness that is authentic Mexican food.  It made me have a sever craving.  Now, I will say that no matter how hard I try, anything Mexican inspired that I cook with probably never be as amazing as the real thing but, I do what I can.  Haha.
