Mimicking American-Mexican food
One thing that I tried was mimicking Mexican food, such as Taco Salad and Quesadilla. I bought salad leaves, beans (can't find black beans here, though...), ground beef, onions, tomatoes, hot peppers (found some in Interspar), tortilla wraps, limes, lemon, koriander, avocado, a block of cheddar cheese (found in TESCO), and a bag of shredded mozzarella cheese.
Then I made salsa using chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, and chopped hot peppers mixed with lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper, and koriander. And made guacamole with mashed avocado, chopped onion, chopped tomato mixed with sour cream, salt and pepper, and lemon juice. Let them rest in the frig while you make the other stuff.
Quesadillas are also very easy. Spread olive oil very thinly on the surface of tortilla wrap, top it with shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese, and sprinkle chopped cilantro and hot peppers on top. Cover it with another tortilla (brush some olive oil on the surface facing down). Heat up a frying pan with tiny bit of olive oil and cook the Quesadilla until the surface gets crispy on both side. That's it. Serve it with the homemade guacamole.
My cheese lover hubby loved the Quesadilla.
