Mi Rancho is a Good Hangover Cure

After a night of overindulging for New Year's Eve I was a little sluggish today. I started the morning off with my first go-to for hangover cures- bacon. That always takes a little of the pain away. It is the new wonder-fruit.

I then mustered up the energy to lounge on the couch for a couple hours and do a whole lot of nothing. Several home improvement and cooking shows later, I decided maybe I should leave the house and go get lunch/dinner. I have been craving fajitas for about two weeks so decided Mi Rancho would be the next prescription for my hangover lethargy.

Given a late breakfast and skipping lunch we rolled into Mi Rancho at 3:30. I felt a bit like a senior citizen but I didn't care, I was starving. I was surprised to see that after about 15 minutes the place was packed. Looks like we weren't the only ones on the post-party schedule.

We opted for a feast including combination fajitas, ribs and shrimp. It was glorious. I love the warm, soft tortillas and the spicy, buttery flavor of the chicken and steak. The ribs were not the typical bbq, but rather a sticky and sweet glaze- I'm guessing a little molasses and brown sugar. Nothing tops the hangover cure better than the hair of the dog- Coronas and Margaritas. The food is good and the prices are very reasonable ($36 for the giant fajita feast for two). I don't know what your day-after elixir was today, but mine worked beautifully!
