Enchiladas are legal in all 82 states.
I agree with the comment below. I was using the book the other day while trying to reach something from a cabinet and it proved to be very useful. The thick, sturdy spine held my weight beautifully. I recommend this to anyone who may be a little short and has many taller cabinets in their house. The book probably holds weight up to 300 pounds. Very impressive.
