Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

Peas in guacamole are an abomination against humanity on such a scale that it boggles the mind. It's like imagining Liberace fucking Eleanor Roosevelt in the ass with a giant cucumber.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

Guacamole (peas or no peas) is so horrendous that I'd rather eat haggis or vegemite.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

Anyone criticiIng the east coast needs to go to Sunset Park Brooklyn for authentic Mexican food.
If you're afraid to rub elbows with brown people then go to Chipotles in downtown Manhattan.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

Just so some folks on here can get an inkling of the real shit - these are what real Mexican tacos look like - they don't come with cheese, you bloody savages:

Be sure to let us know. I don't think it sounds nearly as bad as people are making it out to be. From the pictures I've seen the garnish used actually turns me off more than the idea of pureed peas.

Garbanzos aka chick peas. Not sweet peas or peas, or whatever the fuck. Keep the fucking peas away from the guac.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

Do people actually say "I want some Mexican food, let's go to Chipotle"? I've never heard anyone equate the two.

Chipotle is just Chipotle. People say "I want Chipotle. Is it Tex-Mex?

What the hell else would you call it?

Burritos and tacos are Mexican food in the public mindset, like it or not. Except for pretentious hipsters who use words like texmex.

No, actually we all use tex-mex. Tex-Mex is heavy on the yellow cheese, though. In Cali we have Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Cali-Mex. I believe Cali-Mex originated in San Diego but I'm not sure. They're both a form of fusion and I'm not that big on fusion cuisine.

I was thinking this sounds like a guac/hummus hybrid, particularly with the addition of sesame seeds. Instead of oil it uses the fat from the avocado.

And sliced jalapeño. Tex-mex uses a lot of that.

Even tho I'm a proud Texan, I actually prefer Santa Fe-mex if you will. Hatch green chili is about as close to heaven as I'll get. On burgers, in eggs, in green chili....

Light should not be in Mexican food's vocabulary. Authentic Mexican joints also use lard when they make the food. Everything is rich and that's why it tastes so good.

Here's the worst culprit of the Cal-Mex (if you can even call it that) that ddi originate in San Diego and can be found in L.A.

California Burrito aka "Spuderito": A delicious and mythical burrito found in Mexican eateries, also known as a Cali Burrito. It is native to Southern California, especially San Diego. The California Burrito consists of carne asada, cheese, sour cream and French fries or potatoes rolled into a flour tortilla. Guacamole may be substituted for sour cream, though this not a true Cali burrito, just an imposter (known as a Cyrus Burrito).


I've had it before and it was alright but I usually don't eat burritos all that often. I love tacos more.

These are the tacos at a joint I go to in New Jersey. Comes with radishes, limes, cactus & spring onion on the side.
