comment What's the difference between chutney and relish?
In my experience chutney is sweeter, thicker and thus more like a jam. When I think 'chutney' my first thought is 'mango chutney', which is really a spiced mango jam. A relish is usually more savoury, often including onion, but is often sweet as well.

comment Is eating road kill a health-hazard?
You are asking multiple, different questions here, some of which are subjective and thus unsuitable here. Can you narrow things down to one concrete question that can have an objective answer? Is road kill safe to eat is an example, would you eat road kill is not.

comment Tortilla Espinoza - what is it and how do I make it?
Are you sure it wasn't tortilla Espanola? Also, recipe requests are off topic here on Seasoned Advice. As you've also included a question regarding what the item is, I won't vote to close, but you might want to modify the question a little.
