Classic Mexican dishesJanuary 13, 2017
We’ve all been there before: either we’re sitting at home trying to figure out what to eat for dinner on a weekend, or we’re too busy during the workweek to sit down and indulge in a proper meal. Regardless of the scenario, a high-quality delivery option always saves the day. And what better lunch or dinner option is out there than authentic Mexican food? We all know the famous dishes, so here’s a list of the staples of Mexican cuisine to get your mouth watering.
Nothing spells traditional Mexican cuisine like delicious enchiladas do. A piping hot tray — straight out of the oven — lined with little bundles of corn tortillas filled with meat & cheese, drenched with red sauce, is the sure to please everyone. Better yet, you can be adventurous with your ingredients to substitute for meat to make a tasty vegetarian enchilada.
This might just be the perfect portable food delivery device. The idea of wrapping one or two flour tortillas around beans, veggies and meat may seem simple, but in the right hands it becomes sublime. Also, if you’re feeling adventurous, try to conquer those giant burritos served at some of the best Mexican restaurants.
Talk to most Mexicans — or any Mexican food fanatic — and a smile spreads across their lips the moment they hear the word “taco.” That’s because these humble little items are the true soul food of Mexico. Corn tortillas filled with cheese and meats of your choosing, prepared by hand, and then handed right over to you. There’s nothing more personal in cooking than that.
There’s the sound that you hear first — that sizzling as a server brings steaming metal trays of meats to the table. Then there’s the fun of mixing and matching the meats with the various tortillas, vegetables and salsas. It’s the perfect communal food.
The quesadilla is even more deceptively simple than the burrito or taco. However, when you bite into one that’s crisp on the outside and deliciously cheesy on the inside, you know you’re in the hands of a real artist. Add guacamole to the mix and you’ll be on cloud 9.
Has your appetite been appropriately stoked yet? If so, why wait? Order some delicious Mexican food, or head to to your favorite Mexican spot and pull up a seat.
