What is a good authentic Mexican recipe for a school project?

Question by Matt M: What is a good authentic Mexican recipe for a school project?
I am presenting a school project for my Advanced Foods class and I was wondering what kind or Mexican dish I should make? I have to give out samples to the class of about 30. I need to make something authentic that everybody will like. It doesn’t have to be, but maybe a dessert recipe? Any ideas?
Oh yeah, please include the recipe.

    Chicken Pibil, you will love it.

    Also you could prepare pork, it is called Cochinita Pibil.

    This is easier and you won’t have any problem with the ingredients:

    I say soft tacos. You cant go wrong with that.

    Thin cut milanesa =)

    Fry the meat with garlic & small pieces of onion [not too much onion].
    cut the meat in small pieces.
    heat the tortilla put the meat inside with chopped cillantro & onion.
    Put a small piece of lime on the side.
    If they add lime it will make it taste soo much better in my opinion.

    1 ¾ cups all purpose flour

    Watch out, Nachos and Burritos are NOT Mexican.

    We have BurritAs which is flour tortilla with ham and cheese. Now you can add a lot of ingredients but the originals are like that and easy to make.

    Flour tortillas
    Sour cream

    *you can change the ham and put some mushrooms in it, or combine it, etc.

    Put the ham and cheese or whatever on a half of the tortilla and fold it. Heat it in the microwave or use a pan. (no oil). Once the cheese is melted or the tortilla is crunchy if you like it like that, put it on a plate and put the lettuce, cream and salsa and enjoy!
