Feedback/suggestions for improvement welcomed! In particular, please let me know any alternative terms or whether I need a better image for anything.
Jan 25th, 2013 at 16:00 GMT
oh, so hungry. Yum. I suggest maybe changing the image for refried beans. The picture looks like some kind of chili sauce to me - definitely couldn't tell what it was!
Jan 25th, 2013 at 16:12 GMT
Wonderful idea for quiz. Agreed about the frijoles - looks like it could be some sauce or meaty mixture - and the word refritos is unneccessary to a Mexican. The quesadillas look too fat and not white enough to be that. Can another pic be found? I know about queso blanco and queso fresco, but that kind of white cheese is new to me. Thanks for accepting torta and dulce de leche.

One more vote to change the pictures for frijoles and quesadillas. The quesadilla photo looks like something that has everything but cheese in it. The beans look like something with tomatoes in. Good idea overall.
Jan 26th, 2013 at 05:21 GMT
Another frijoles vote, although looking back at the photo, I do notice the black beans surrounding the frijoles. I don't know how I missed those before. Awesome quiz!
Jan 26th, 2013 at 11:21 GMT
Thanks for the constructive feedback everyone. I've changed the images for the frijoles and quesadillas, so I hope the new pictures are an improvement on the old. @chriskotx: I've added in 'queso blanco', 'queso fresco' and just 'frijoles' as alternatives. I went with panela because the sources I used implied that it's one of the commonest cheeses in Mexico.
Jan 26th, 2013 at 19:18 GMT
Now THOSE look like frijoles! I think you should accept the plural for chile relleno; there's more than one in the photo.
Jan 26th, 2013 at 19:31 GMT
Great idea for a quiz, nice selection of platos, and good pictures. A very tiny nitpick: there are a few minor inconsistencies with pluralization/singularization in a few of the accepted responses. It would be appreciated if you could standardize that across the quiz. I assumed some of my singular responses were incorrect identifications entirely, since the other responses were triggered in the singular form (when I really only needed to add an "-s"). Still, cinco globos!

@triplet_3: MUCH better picture of frijoles. The quesadillas are called that because they're filled with (white) queso. Those look nicely stuffed with more and different ingredients, still less flat and simple than what I'd expect. Maybe those are TexMex (American) style quesadillas. ¡Provecho! (bon apetit).
Jan 27th, 2013 at 10:45 GMT
@chriskotx: when I was looking for pictures of quesadillas there seemed to be many different types, so I went with what I thought was a) the clearest picture and b) one that seemed closest to the authentic Mexican kind. I've been trying to avoid TexMex style foods in the quiz, so I'm sorry if the quesadillas aren't authentically Mexican enough. Should I change the picture again? The one I've got up at the moment was one of the clearest quesadilla pictures I could find. I'm glad the picture for frijoles is better.
Jan 27th, 2013 at 10:52 GMT
@Chocolatl and Purple_Parrot: plurals added. I'm not a Spanish speaker, so I can only plead ignorance in not pluralising chile relleno! In fact I've just looked up the correct pluralisation and realised I've got it wrong, so I'll quickly go and change it again... :p
Jan 27th, 2013 at 20:41 GMT
I kind of see chriskotx's point about the quesadillas--Mexican quesadillas are just cheese and tortillas, with salsa served on the side. Americanized quesadillas tend to have a lot of other things tossed in. People who are familiar with the more stuffed version will probably get the answer, but others might not.
Jan 30th, 2013 at 12:14 GMT
I was one who missed the quesadillas because they looked more like soft tacos with all that stuff in them. I figured it was my own fault but since many others had the same problem I'll just chip in that I did too. :)

Some of the images are not the most descriptive or authentic, like the quesadillas, tortillas and tacos that are the american version of the authentic dishes, the panela can be queso fresco and pico de gallo can be salsa mexicana. Other than that was a good quiz. Source:I'm Mexican

@arva1: queso fresco and salsa mexicana are already in the quiz as alternatives for panela and pico de gallo. I'm going to change the image for quesadillas again when I get the chance. What are more authentic tortillas and tacos like? I deliberately used an image of soft tacos, because I read that hard tacos were invented in the US not Mexico.

my vote is to simply accept "salsa" for pico de gallo/salsa fresca. it's a specific type of salsa. in other cases, you accept a less specific description ('frijoles' for frijoles refritos).

My new favorite quiz, this gem. Nice work, triplet: You ain't a sailor, hermano — you the captain! Para bailar la bamba!!!

The birria brought back memories of Guadalajara. Now I want some.

Bread of death...sure I'll try it.
May 7th, 2013 at 03:39 GMT
Darn you! Now I'm hungry! Five globes. I like that you were going for more authentic Mexican cuisine than just Tex-Mex. This has inspired me to look up recipes and try more stuff at home. Muchas gracias!

"Death bread" or "bread of death" would be Pan de MuertE. So you can relax.. what it actually translates to is "bread of dead guy"... wait...
May 7th, 2013 at 14:49 GMT
but I ordered Carne Asada with a side of Arroz con Pollo

Churros aren't Mexican. They're Spanish!
May 7th, 2013 at 15:52 GMT
Growing up, the one you call pan dulce we called "pan de huevo" - not sure if it's an equivalent name or not.
May 7th, 2013 at 16:12 GMT
Help, I'm so hungry D:
May 7th, 2013 at 18:51 GMT
November 2nd is "All Souls Day". In Spanish, they call it "Dia de Muertos". But it is the same holiday. "Pan de Muerto" is for that special occasion. You typically find in during October / early November in any Mexican bakery, but seldom in other months. So, if looking for a translation, it probably is "All Souls Bread"

Hmm you seem to have left out Crunchwrap Supreme

Had you put up a picture of a Mexican boy band or Ricky Martin, then I might've guessed Menudo
