that's exactly what my husband told me...their idea would be. Anyways my husband tried jalapeño pepper and now he loves it sometimes he orders stuffed jalapeño with cheese inside.

Quoting vineyards:

Yes but I am a little bit more knowledgeable. I know how jalapeno is pronounced: Huh-luh-penio. As for the name of your country: Mehico.

Vineyards, (maybe a bit off topic) can you tell me why there are so less restaurants in Turkey (even in Ankara as capital where all the ambassies are) from a foreign kitchen? I mean, there is hardly to find a Mexican, Chinese, Indian, Japanese restaurant. And many Turkish people I spoke to (here and in Turkey) say they don't want to eat foreign food. Is it because they think it is not halal or is it 'unknown is unloved'? I know Turkish cuisine is great, I love it, but something different is nice too.

Thanks for explaining Vineyards. I was just curious because here, even in small towns, you can find many different cuisines. But I have to admit that our national food is not special (I even don't like most of it....).

hello, well in Mexico you can find all kinds of food from everywhere and each culture has their great dish. I am found of all foods. My husband on the other hand is very particular about what he eats and we have a hard time finding a place to dine. Besides him loving his turkish food he also does not eat beef or fish or chicken so it makes it even harder. I have learned to make a few turkish dishes (vegetarian) which I find so elavorative but healthy. I don't mind.
