Tom, what is "Mexican oregano" - and I live 18 miles from the border - should know, I guess. Cilantro?

Liz, I have only seen it dried. It is definitely different from regular oregano in that it falls on the majoram side of things and even is a little minty. I won't cook Mexican or Southwest food without it because for me it lends an authentic flavor I am always looking for. I can only find it in ethnic groceries.

Liz, look in the Mexican section of your local grocery store. It is usually on a rack of dried herbs packed in plastic. With the dried peppers, cinnamon and other herbs and spices used in Mexican cooking.

Love this! Using lentils in place of beans is brilliant in this application.
