Inside NCIS: Los Angeles

1. Inside NCIS: Los Angeles

This isn't Sam and Callen's first trip to Tijuana. The last time they had to travel to Mexico was to track down the only employee to escape a professional hit, at an office maintained by the Department of Defense, in the episode "Black Budget."
Montezuma's Revenge

2. Montezuma's Revenge

Montezuma's revenge is a colloquialism for the stomach discomfort that is contracted in Latin American countries by visitors. The term originates from the conquering of local people by European countries. Montezuma II was Emperor of Mexico from 1502 to 1520 and was in power when the Spanish began their conquest of the Aztec Empire. The discomfort is thought to be the revenge of the local gods that were worshiped prior to the countries becoming Christianized. It is a bacterial illness, always uncomfortable, and occasionally serious. Most cases are caused by the E. coli bacterium.
The Mexican Fruit Fly

3. The Mexican Fruit Fly

Fruit that has been attacked by the Mexican fruit fly should not be eaten because its larvae tunnels through infested fruits causing it to decay. Some plants that the Mexican fruit fly is drawn to include peach, avocado, orange, grapefruit and pear, many of which are grown in California. The Mexican fruit fly currently hasn't spread to the U.S., but some areas in Texas are at risk.

4. Caballero

Sam calls Callen a "caballero." Wondering what he means? The Spanish word "caballero" means knight. Though "caballero" has connotations as a horseman in the American Southwest, the direct translation is akin to knight or gentleman.
Añejo Tequila

5. Añejo Tequila

Why is the team so excited about Añejo tequila? Well that's because Añejo is Spanish for aged. Añejo tequilas are stored in oak barrels, with añejo varieties aged from 1-3 years while extra añejo varieties are aged three or more years.
