A Taste Of Mexican Cuisine

May 14, 2008
When you think of food, what is the first thought that comes to mind? Do you envision delicious and hearty Italian meals? Maybe you prefer the robust Greek foods? Regardless of what it you choose, you will find that more and more people around the world are choosing delicious Mexican cuisine for their own.

There are many reasons Mexican cuisine has become such a favorite. Healthy and delicious, this is food that stays with you for generations and is extremely affordable. Yes, authentic Mexican cuisine is not expensive at all. You will find that it is even easy to incorporate this food choice into your regularly scheduled menu.

One of my own personal favorites for choosing authentic foods from Mexico happens to be the vibrant colors. The mix of fruits and meat leave a picture perfect composition worthy of the greatest artworks in the world. Such vibrancy means while my taste buds are relishing the flavors, my eyes are being pleased by the vibrancy.

When considering Mexican cuisine, you should first be aware that there is a different between authentic foods from Mexico and Tex-Mex foods. Tex-Mex foods are a combination or mingling of two cultures. While I thoroughly appreciate Tex-Mex foods, the authentic flavor of Mexican cuisine is undeniably unique and wonderful.

For instance, pico de gallo is a favorite of many people. This is actually Spanish in origin and translates to "rooster's beak". Pico de gallo is a wonderful condiment which consists of freshly chopped chiles onions, and tomatoes. Sometimes, those chilies will be serranos, but other times you will find the best of the jalapenos in the world. Lime juice is often used to preserve the color. This is a great addition to any meal and is perfect with a choice of meat and a warm tortilla.

Chorizo is both an ingredient and a delicious meal all by itself. A chorizo is a type of sausage. These are most commonly deep red in color and have a distinctive smoky flavor that will make it something to remember. This is used as commonly as breakfast sausage is to many Americans. These can be sliced and eaten in a warm tortilla or diced and added to other meals. In addition, chorizos are delicious grilled and served for the whole family.

Quesadillas are a favorite for children, and these are so easy to make! All you have to have is a tortilla and cheese. These are similar to the famous grilled cheese sandwiches except a tortilla is used instead. Generally, the tortilla is filled with a layer of cheese, and my favorite, a little chicken, and then this is folded in half so it resembles an omelet. Fry in a skillet and serve. You can even add sour cream or salsa for a delicious snack or meal for children of all ages.

When it comes to great Mexican cuisine, you will discover that the world is a much yummier and colorful place. You too can make meals to remember by brushing up on those tips that allow you to make the best in foods for your family and friends.
