Melting Pot?

America, it has been observed, is not really a melting pot. It is actually a huge potluck dinner, in which platters of roasted chicken beckon beside casseroles of pasta, mounds of tortillas, stew pots of gumbo, and skillets filled with pilafs of every imaginable color..

Our house-guest/foster-teen made a special meal for us recently.  

Home made flour tortillas:  

Shaped by expert hand:

Baking sheet?  It will do:  

When she saw me taking this picture, she made me wait until she found the perfect tortilla for the top of the stack:  

The fillings - red beans, cheese and avocado:  

The final masterpiece!  :)

No news yet on a more permanent place for her, but everything here is going smoothly, with periodic forays into deliciousness such as above.  :)
