The way you fold the tortilla mostly.


OMG ROSE! There is SO MUCH MORE to it! . . (All said playfully mind you!)

Burritos normally have beans and rice as well as mean and some vegetables and cheese.

Taco, is meat, cheese and then some toppings. Usually lettuce, tomatoes, onions, jalapeños etc.

I asked this other another Swedish friend years ago, and he mentioned how Sweden really doesn’t have very much in terms of Mexican Food. Which is a shame, because Mexican food is pretty amazing.

Which leads me down another road.

We were talking at work the other day about how every culture has it’s own form of a dumpling. I.E. Some form of meat that has bread wrapped around it.

Some examples:

Steamed Dumplings (Chinese... usually filled with pork.)
Jamaican Patty (Really spicy ground meat within a bread pocket)
Empanadas (latin meat onions and spices within a break pocket)
Cornish pasty (U.K developed for miners to keep their food warm and free of coal dust. Almost like a pot pie within bread)

So I am just curious what other examples of Dumplings we all have? I know we are all from many various cultures.

Of the above, I have had all of them. But oddly enough, I can’t think of something that would be “American” in this regard. Only thing I could come up with is Pigs in a Blanket. Little Cocktail sized hot dogs wrapped in a dough and baked.

Thoughts?

I don't see how this is a bad thing, in fact, very creative! So...what goodies came to you?

Burritos normally have beans and rice as well as mean and some vegetables and cheese.

Taco, is meat, cheese and then some toppings. Usually lettuce, tomatoes, onions, jalapeños etc.


Most of the time when I got to more authentic taco places, there is never lettuce on them. They tend to be smaller.

True that more authentic burritos tend to have rice and beans, but my favorite burrito has no beans in it at all. And I've seen ones without rice too.

Thus all lines start to blur, which brings it back to how it's folded.

Polish pierogis - more like dumplings than pasties or empanadas
Australian or Scottish meat pies

They tend to be authentically vegetarian-based (spicy potato & peas are common, but I've certainly had chicken samosas, and even beef (which would stop the hearts of a nation that holds the cow sacred!).

There are two things here of note...

1. Hurray for Caysi! This is well deserved! Seriously!

2. Julia must have some serious pull some where to get all these MBs commissioned.

Nah, I just commissioned two (Marion's and Caysi's) and found two marvellous microbadgicians who answered the call. No pulls and no mystery, but I'm happy to see this one crafted.

Hmmm... Let me go back and clarify the post to avoid this in the future. I would like it to be purchased now. You can continue saving for your 1000 microbadges later.
