Most Americans have had a longstanding romance with Mexican food. When one speaks words like enchiladas, nachos, burritos, and tostadas, there are immediate images of Mexico that come to mind. Mexican food is a staple in food choices available in the market. So much so that it is part of our culture. One already knows what it is without having to ask. But there’s no denying that eating Mexican food in Mexico offers more than just sating your hunger. It is one experience worth trying.

Mexican food is based on the cuisine of Native Americas. Their food was earthy. yet spicy, tangy and deceptively complex. They use a great variety of spices, including chiles that not only increase the spiciness of the dish, but elevate it into something satisfying. Mexican food is also well-balanced, even though people think it’s all about corn and beans. They have lots of other vegetables, meats, seafood and other proteins that most Americans haven’t seen and tasted. Insects and mushrooms figure in somewhere in the menu and have become nutritious alternatives to the usual stuff that we eat in the States.

The food reflects the influences of Spain and France. The Spanish supposedly introduced burritos, bagels, rice, beef, chicken, wine, garlic, pork enchiladas and onions to the local cuisine. The French contribution is through the use of many rich sauces.

Let’s see what Mexico has come to offer by way of food.
