"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

When in Rome El Paso

we enjoy eating at El Taco Tote.  It  is a Mexican restaurant that tastes homemade.

You order at the counter, are given cups for drinks, then you find a table and the food is brought to you.
While waiting for the food you serve your sides at a salad bar style booth

 
Here is a usual sampling of our sides:
1. lettuce and limes
2. cilantro
3.  red enchilada sauce
4. Hot red sauce
5. salsa
6. radishes
7. and for me white onions


The food arrives within 5-10 minutes and it tastes like the food we make at home.
Many people label the food offered at El Taco Tote as Mexican food, but for the Double Nickel Farm family it is simply our daily food and we couldn't imagine life without it!

Oh Deanna- I understand as in our travels we often stop at places that claim to have Mexican food only to discover it isn't.
