Winter is Coming: Eat Mexican Food

Illinois Valley Winter

If you look outside, the leaves are changing and the temperatures are dropping fast. It won’t be long before the ground is covered in snow and you have more layers than a seven layer burrito. It’s times like this when you crave hot chocolate, but winter was made for Mexican food. What? Don’t believe me?

Cold temperatures need hot food

When winter hits full force, there’s almost nothing you can do to get that cold out of your bones…almost. Come into our restaurant and listen to the sizzling of our fresh fajitas. You could be in the middle of the Antarctic, surrounded by penguins with Morgan Freeman narrating your journey and the second you hear sizzling fajitas you warm up. You can’t help it. It’s one of those soothing sounds that will melt your heart and make your mouth water.

Winter can be lonely, Mexican food brings people together

When the temperatures dip, people tend to stay home in their warm homes foregoing social occasions because it’s just too cold to go outside. If you have a few winter recluses, then offer them Mexican food. Mexican food is meant to be eaten with people and it can bring out even the biggest winter hermit. If they still refuse, then don’t worry. Come get it and take it to them. They get to be with friends and don’t have to leave their warm home. It’s the best of both worlds.

Closest you’re getting to Mexico

When the snow is piled so high you can’t see the roof of your car, your mind wanders to warmer climates even as you’re stuck in the Illinois winter. Work, money and a million other reasons are keeping you home this winter instead of the sunny beaches of Mexico, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little bit of Mexico. Brave the winter cold and come to Jalapenos where we can bring Mexico to you through amazing food and great company.

Winter is on its way, so don’t let it ruin your day. Three months of freezing weather can dampen anyone’s spirit, but a trip to Jalapeno’s makes it all alright.
