Mexican Recipes


Mexico, although profoundly changed by the arrival of Europeans, has a long agricultural tradition that stretches back into pre-Columbian times. As you might expect, Mexican cuisine therefore combines elements of both the indigenous native American cuisine with European (especially Spanish - Spain ruled the country for 300 years) influences, and uses ingredients from both.

  • Traditional Mexican ingredients include corn, beans and chillies. These items have been part of the Mexican diet for thousands of years.

  • Ingredients introduced by the Spanish include sugar, cheese and livestock.

  • Fruits and vegetables include some that are both native to Mexico, and others that have been introduced: avocado, coconut, papya, pineapple, prickly pear cactus, squash, sweet potatoes and tomatoes.
Some popular Mexican foods include:
  • Guacamole - Guacamole is a dip whose principal ingredient is avocado, bout to wich other ingredients such as tomatoes and salt, and sometimes lime juice, onions, and spices, can be added. The recipe is believe to date back to pre-Columbian times.

  • Tortilla - Tortilla is the traditional bread of Mexico. It is a flat unleavened bread made from ground maize (corn) or wheat flour. Some people claim the maize variety is more traditional, but in fact both forms have a very long history.

    Tortilla

  • Chili con carne - A spicy meat (beef or pork) stew with chili peppers. This dish has been widely exported and taken up in other countries, especially the United States, and hence there are many variations, either regional or based on personal preference. For example, tomatoes, onions, or kidney beans may added, brown sugar used as condiment, and in some countries (principally the United States, the United Kingdom the Sweden and Japan), it has become common to serve chili con carne over rice.

  • Enchilada - Enchiladas are tortillas that are dipped in oil or lard, then sauce, filled, rolled, placed in a casserole dish and layered with more sauce or other ingredients, and finally baked.

    Enchiladas with rice and beans

  • Burrito - A tortilla filled with meat, such as beef, pork or chicken. Traditionally, only meat is used for filling, and the tortilla is rolled into a thin tube. In the USA and other countries, it has become common to add other ingredients such as rice, beans, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, cheese or sour cream.
