10 Most Favorite Mexican Dishes

Mole

Pronounced ‘mol-eh’, it is a rich sauce that used extensively in Mexican dishes. By mixing together more than 20 ingredients from chili peppers to chocolate Mole becomes very flavorful.

Tamales

They are corn dough pockets with a sweet or a savory stuffing wrapped in banana leaves and steamed. The stuffing can be meat, cheese, fruits, green salsa and many more.

Chiles en nogada

It is commonly known as the patriotic dish because of its colors (same as that of the Mexican flag). Poblano chillies are filled with a mixture of meat, fruits and spices and they are served with a walnut-based cream sauce and pomegranate seeds.

Torta Cubana

To satiate your big appetite of meat craving you must try Torta Cubana. All kinds of meat and cheese along with beans, avocados, onions and mayo on a soft warm bread can beat almost anything.

Elotes

Simply put, it is corn on a cob. But the addition salt, lime, chilli powder, butter, mayonnaise, cheese and sour cream make it worth a shot.

Pozoles

This soup was used in ritual sacrifices during the pre-Hispanic days. Now they are made with chicken, pork and vegetables and are flavored with herbs and spices. After being cooked overnight, it is served with lettuce, radish, onion, lime and chilli.

Enchiladas Verdes

These are actually green enchiladas (corn tortillas) stuffed with shredded chicken and covered in green salsa topped with cream white cheese.

Tacos Arabes

These tacos have heavily seasoned meat that have Middle Eastern flavors.

Chilaquiles

Try it for breakfast and enjoy the lightly fried corn tortillas cut into quarters and topped with salsa. Add eggs and pulled chicken with cheese and cream for extra flavor.

Tostadas

Fried till corn tortillas are crunchy and golden and served with toppings like frijoles (refried beans), cheese, seafood, cooked meat, and ceviche are great.

Most of the Mexican food is meaty. So vegetarians and vegans watch out for some strict vegetarian recipes!
