This is a garrafón in Mexico.

Yes, it's one Garrafon in Mexico.

There are other dishes in Mexico the Cochinita Pibil, the Tinga, and the Taquitos al pastor.

In Mexico a garrafa is smaller than a garrafón. The 19 liter/5 gallon bottles of water are garrafones and for example a 1 gallon jug of milk is a garrafa de leche or for example a 4 liter jug of oil would also be a garrafa.

"Peas" son guisantes. Las judías verdes son los frijoles con vaina cuando son más jóvenes. Se hacen hervidas y es una verdura. A mí es la verdura que más me gusta (bueno, las alcachofas también me encantan )

Well, you changed my original sentence to "se usan" and put in parentheses that it could also be "se les usa". Why is one "usan" and the other "usa"? I thought that the impersonal "se" always went with a singular verb conjugation. ??
