There’s certainly no lack of culture in Europe. But living in a tiny town in northern Germany does not lend itself to a lot of culinary adventures. It also makes it sort of hard to find food that we crave – namely, Mexican-inspired delicacies. Yes, the international sections of stores will sell lots of hot sauce and taco shells under the “American” sign, but that’s not quite what I mean.
We miss some of our favorite food spots from back home, but some well-spiced chicken and soft shell tortillas can do a lot of damage control. I recently tried out this yummy flautas recipe. I couldn’t find chicken breast instead of thighs and it turned out great. Would have been even better if I had made the margaritas pictured on the site, but there is always next time, no?
