Lets ignore the fact that every mex dish seems to be a collection of starches. Beans, Rice, some starchy paste, more beans, more rice, than re-fry the beans...then wrap the whole thing in a pure starch wrap.

So , since Nafta is to blame for fat mexican's, have they decided to get out of NAFTA. What would be good would be to have Michelle Obama go over there and tell them how to eat.-Since its working so well here.
