One of the main factors making Mexican food so irresistible, is that it is a blend of different cultures. Its distinct blend of spices, seasonings and vibrant colors create a beautiful presentation. Many of the traditional Mexican dishes still represent their deep, pre-hispanic origins, making them truly unique.
Mexican cuisine also represents diversity and pride by different geographic territories. Distinct ingredients and cooking styles are used among the different states across the country. Mountainous regions, coastal states, and desert regions all prepare their dishes differently due to the cultural diversity and ingredients available.
From tortillas to tamales to enchiladas, to large kernels of Hominy, corn seems to be found in everything when it comes to Mexican Cuisine. You’d be amazing how the people of Mexico are able to process this seemingly bland ingredient into some of the most delicious and beautiful food creations.
Tortillas are the most dominant form of corn you’ll find in Mexican food. They are the building blocks of Mexican staples like taquitos, tostadas, quesadillas, enchiladas, flautas and more! Tacos, however, are everywhere. They are available everywhere you look in central and south America, from restaurants to beaches to street food. They are eaten at every meal and are an absolute staple in Mexican food.
