The amazing Mexican food from Ahora caused yet another feeding frenzy in my living room tonight. Fresh Fresh Fresh ingredients came together for a hugely satisfying and delectable feast. And it’s like this everytime from this place! I’ve also sampled the nachos, which it turns out are made using homemade corn chips, so I don’t need to sell you on how delicious they are. And the churros are like perfect little freshly made donut sticks dipped in dulce de leche.  And if you’ve ever had dulce de leche, you know that it’s so good it’s completely possible to eat it by the spoonful.  After spoonful, after spoonful….

ANYWAYS, here is what we had from Ahora this time:  Grande Chicken Burrito with Mexican rice.

Grande Chicken Buritto

The burrito is stuffed with perfectly seasoned chicken, cheese, black beans, rice, sour cream, salsa gringa, guacamole and romaine lettuce.  SO GOOD.  (I’m realizing now that the side order of rice is a little redundant, but refer to my previous statement about everything being SO GOOD).

Chris had the equally tasty Tres Chicken Tacos.  And beans and rice.  And look! Fresh avocado! Mmmmmmmmm 🙂

Did I mention they have a salsa bar?  This is just a small sample of what they offer, so if you like your mexican food extra spicy this is a great way to up the heat factor. It’s also kinda fun just to try all the different salsas 🙂

As you can tell this place offers take out, so you can enjoy it from the comfort of your couch if their lively basement restaurant isn’t your thing.

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo is a really simple salsa that will improve so many different dishes.  Add to tacos, burritos, nachos, omelettes, pasta, guacamole, bruschetta etc. etc. etc.  It works because all the ingredients are fresh, and there isn’t a lot of dressing to hide the delicious natural flavours.

Pico de Gallo Recipe

Diced Tomatoes (about 2 -3 Cups, depending on how much you want to make)

Juice from one Lime
Kosher Salt (or any coarse grained salt) to taste

1. Mix everything together, and the longer it sits, the more the flavours will mingle!
