I moved from Carlsbad, NM to Sandy, OR and expected the same culinary delights as those found in the southwest. You know, Hatch chilies and spicy red enchiladas and the tongue-cooling, palate pleasing taste of good tacos. To my dismay, Oregon has converted to Baja Mexican food. The main ingredient...cilantro. Cilantro on everything - no chilies - no heat - no heartburn. Just something that tastes like soap covering everything. So lift high your forks you lovers of real Mexican food and demand - no cilantro!
