Tim, you make a good point. When I first read the mexican food as comfort food comment, I had the same thought as Ole. But we forget regional differences. To those in Colorado, that's as much of a comfort food as meatloaf is in other places.

Since moving down here from Pa., I can't say I'm impressed with the South's view of "comfort food". Greens and grits disgust me, and I just don't get the big fuss about the BBQ. I say that with all respect, since it all depends what you grow up with.

There is one exception though. My traditional New Year's meal has changed from Sauerkraut and Pork to Navy Beans and Ham Hocks. Good stuff. And ham and red-eye gravy can get me drooling as well.
