Just stop by your native Mexican eatery and you’ll perhaps find sky-high piles of nachos stifled in cheese along with colossal fishbowl margaritas.
But the real fact is…. “Mexican food couldn’t be more different”.
What I meant to say Mexican food is nothing but an exclusive fusion of native Mesoamerican cooking with European cuisines, particularly Spanish, elements added after the Spanish takeover of the Aztec Empire in the 16th century.

Well, I won’t go in deep, but history denotes that Mexican food is savoury, rich, simple and a bit complex.
Why I said “complex” because of the ingredients and seasonings they use, which vary by region.
I will explain it to you with a nice example: Mexicans combine their tropical fruits with seafood to invent aromatic and delightful dishes in the Yucatan city. Puebla City and the central regions where “mole dishes” are still prepare the most. It is a unique indigenous food that lasts for centuries.
These days, Mexican food is even catered online also. You can look for cuisines they offer through this web link: http://www.playa.net.au/.
“People usually think that Mexican food is heavy. They relate Mexican food with fast-food items.
But let me correct you, Mexican food is not just beautiful is taste, so it is fresh, colorful and flavorfull.”
Above all, it is cheap. Most of the Mexican meals start off with a boundless basket of chips and salsa. Appetizers are very inexpensive.
Now I will tell you about the some of the most popular Mexican dishes and how they are prepared:
• Moles: Moles are compound pastes that are prepared by combining spices, chiles and occasionally fruits, also. One of the most popular mole “poblano” is a blend of peanuts, garlic, sesame seed, chocolate, chiles, almonds, raisins, and plantains. Moles can be of any color: green, red, yellow and black. It totally depends upon the ingredients that you have used to prepare them.
• Tacos: Hmmmmm….I know, everyone love tacos. Tacos filled with meat, garnished with vegetables is quiteb liked when served hot with soft corn tortillas. “Tacos dorados are tacos that are filled, then fried”.
