Pairs Well With
I chose this recipe because I really like tacos and I thought other people may like it as well. Besides the ingredients, there is a heterogeneous mixture when you mix all of them together. When the cheese is melting, it is a physical change. Spreading the mixture out is also another physical change. When the tomatoes for the salsa were growing, they got their energy from the sun using photosynthesis which is a chemical change. Digestion would be another chemical change because of the stomach acids that break the food down.
