When it comes to Mexican foods, there are some things you need to know. A lot of what is served today is made from corn that has been harvested, then pressed, dried, roasted and added to stews, soups and chili. Mexican cuisine actually started about nine thousand years ago, in the highlands of the Andes Mountains, when farming communities like the Mayans established, farming maize, making the first process of corn tortilla nixtamalisation, and setting their new food traditions into motion. Over subsequent waves of subsequent Mesoamerican cultures, their cooking techniques changed as well.

Mexican Food

In modern Mexico, most of what is served on the plates of Mexican restaurants is prepared using the corn tortilla - which is what is known as torta. However, in rural areas of the country, there are also rice dishes and a variety of fresh vegetables, beans and fish, as well as seafood and chicken. And spaghetti rojo is also consider as their famous dish, Some of the dishes that you might not think are Mexican are also popular in Mexico.

Amongst all the dishes you can get from south of the border are those that are a close relative of Spanish dishes. One example of this is burritos. The Burrito is a variation of the Spanish sandwich, which is also popular as an item on many menus. It was created in Mexico to resemble the original sandwich by blending a Mexican bun with a bean filling and cheese. As burritos grew in popularity, the original sandwich came to be known as Chorizo, and became widely used by the Mexican population.

Chorizo, or Mexican hot dog, is typically large and rectangular in shape, with a long sausage casing at one end. There are many variations of this particular dish. Typically, you will find it served alongside cole slaw, which is either pickled or cooked in tomatoes. The sausage casing, sometimes with a tomato sauce, can be wrapped around the whole hot dog or wrapped around the cheese, to make a chorizo sandwich.

A popular meal served in the north of Mexico is known as fajitas. These are similar to Tex-Mex dishes, and you'll often find them served with red and green sauces. This dish is a lot like the original Tex-Mex style dish, and is made with pork or beef along with Mexican rice, green Chiles, cilantro, tomatoes, garlic, onions, spices, and other vegetables.

This dish is typically served in a rectangular pan and can be accompanied by black beans.
