Puzzle #50: “Mexican Picnic Basket” with Enrique Henestroza Anguiano

Hello, Crossfolks!

Whoa, 50 weeks of Square Pursuit! So happy to celebrate with one of my favorite crossword people and collaborators, Enrique Henestroza Anguiano. This is not our first time making puzzles together but it’s the first one to see the light of day. We connected over some serious culinary interests this time around — it was hard not to get hungry while making this crossword!

Here’s Enrique:

Excited to be back on Square Pursuit with a culinary crossword collab! This one started with an observation about 28-Across, and it was deliciously fun to elaborate the theme with fellow gourmand Steve. It’s been a joy working together, and I expect you’ll see this byline again in the future. Fair warning: don’t solve this on an empty stomach.

As always, it’s great to get to make and talk puzzles with like-minded folks. Thanks to the wonderful test solving team of Brooke Husic and Matthew Stock, who made our puzzle so much better with their work. This weekend is the first Saturday of the month, so if you’re up for something different, I hope you’ll drop by for a cryptic!

Take care and enjoy the puzzle!
