Spice up Your Night With Delicious Mexican Food

Mexican cuisine is something that you are likely to find on just about any street corner in America with its popularity being so high. Of course, what is served in America as compared to what is served in Mexico are generally two vastly different things. In fact, most people are only aware of many of the foods which come from Northern Mexico rather than anything which comes from the southern regions of the country. This is because only the Northern Mexicans immigrate to the United States. The tacos and nachos that you might think about are not what you will find the majority of in Mexico.

While many people like to concentrate on the street food that you can purchase, it is important to remember that there are many different kinds of foods which you can buy which are simmered for long period of time so that the meat is falling apart as well as different spices which will take the heat to another level. While it is possible to find dishes without a lot of heat in them, it is important to understand why the spiciness of the food came into existence in the first place.

Street Food

The taco was born from street food, but it is not the kind of food that you are used to seeing. The main kind of taco that you will be able to purchase will come in two soft corn tortillas. These generally will have some beans, meat , vegetables and farm cheese added to it. Street stands will have different kinds of salsas that you can add as well as diced onions, cilantro, limes and peppers. You can also find sandwiches made on soft bread which resembles a hoagie. These include avocado along with the herbs and spices which will enliven the meat.

Mexican Barbecue

Another kind of dish that you can try are all of the different kinds of barbeque which are available. This Mexican cuisine is something which is different from American style in that it does not include any kind of sauce. It generally is not even cooked over a fire anymore. The majority of the barbeque is simmered for long period of time with pork rather than beef. It is usually cooked twice. The first heating uses slow heat over a long period and the second heating uses additional fat and high heat.

Why It Is Spicy

The majority of Mexican cuisine is spicy because it is hot! While this might seem contrary, it is important to remember that when the body heats up, it tends to make you feel cooler. The more often you eat spicy food, the more inured you are to the environment that you are in. Jalapenos are the most common pepper used because it grows bountifully in Mexico. It is used to create chipotles by smoking them over an open fire and then storing them in adobo until ready to be used in dishes.
