    How to Cook dishes from Mexico


    Mexico Mexican cuisine combines the traditional indigenous ingredients of native American cuisine with ingredients imported from Europe:
    • Corn, beans and chillies are the most well-known Mexican ingredients, and all have been part of the Mexican diet for thousands of years.

    • Mexico was ruled by Spain for three hundred years - so the cuisine also features many Spanish influences, which include the introduction of sugar, cheese and livestock to the Mexican diet.
    Additionally, fruits and vegetables also form an important part of the Mexican diet - these include tomatoes, squash, sweet potatoes, coconut, pineapple, papya, avocado and prickly pear cactus.

    Some popular and well-known Mexican dishes include:
    • Chili con carne - A spicy stew (usually beef or pork) with chili peppers.

    • Guacamole - A dip/relish created using avocado, the recipe for which dates back to pre-Columbian times. As well as avocado, ingredients usually include tomatoes and salt, and sometimes lime juice, onions, and spices.

      Guacamole

    • Tortilla - A flat unleavened bread made from ground maize (corn) or wheat flour.

      Tortilla

    • Burrito (also known as "taco de harina") - A tortilla filled with meat, such as beef, pork or chicken. Traditionally, meat is the only filling and the tortilla is rolled thin, however in the United States, it has become the norm to add other ingredients such as rice, beans, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, cheese or sour cream.

    • Enchilada - A maize (corn) tortilla dipped in oil or lard and then enchilada sauce. The tortilla is then filled, rolled, placed in a casserole dish and layered with sauce or other ingredients, and finally baked.

      Enchiladas with rice and beans

    • Nachos - This is a snackfood made by covering tortilla chips (crispy fried wedges made from corn tortillas), and covering them melted cheese or other toppings such as jalapeño peppers, onions, salsa, guacamole, beef or chili con carne.

    Product Description:
    Superstar chef Alex Stupak's love of real Mexican food changed his life; it caused him to quit the world of fine-dining pastry and open the smash-hit Empellón Taqueria in New York City. Now he'll change the way you make--and think about--tacos forever. 
     
    Tacos is a deep dive into the art and craft of one of Mexico's greatest culinary exports. Start by making fresh tortillas from corn and flour, and variations that look to innovative grains and flavor infusions. Next, master salsas, from simple chopped condiments to complex moles that simmer for hours and have flavor for days. Finally, explore fillings, both traditional and modern--from a pineapple-topped pork al pastor to pastrami with mustard seeds. 
     
    But Tacos is more than a collection of beautiful things to cook. Wrapped up within it is an argument: Through these recipes, essays, and sumptuous photographs by Evan Sung, the 3-Michelin-star veteran makes the case that Mexican food should be as esteemed as the highest French cooking.

    Product Description:
    The host of a highly popular PBS series, Pati’s Mexican Table, and a self-described “overloaded soccer mom with three kids and a powerful blender,” Pati Jinich has a mission. She’s out to prove that Mexican home cooking is quicker and far easier than most Americans think.

    Her dishes are not blanketed with cheese, or heavy and fried, or based on complex sauces. Nor are they necessarily highly spicy. Surprising in their simplicity and freshness, they incorporate produce and grains. Most important, they fit perfectly into an everyday family cooking schedule and use just a handful of ingredients, most of which are already in your pantry. Many are homey specialties that Pati learned from her mother and grandmother, some are creative spins on classics, while others are not well known outside of Mexico.

    Dishes like Chicken à la Trash (it’s delicious!), a one-pot meal that Pati gleaned from a Mexican restaurant cook; Mexican Meatballs with Mint and Chipotle; Sweet and Salty Salmon; and Mexican-Style Pasta can revitalize your daily repertoire. You’ll find plenty of vegetarian fare, from Classic Avocado Soup, to Divorced Eggs (with red and green salsa), to Oaxaca-Style Mushroom and Cheese Quesadillas.

    Your friends and family will enjoy Tomato and Mozzarella Salad with Pickled Ancho Chile Vinaigrette; Crab Cakes with Jalapeño Aioli; and Chicken Tinga — (you can use rotisserie chicken), which makes a tasty filling for tortas and tostadas. Pati also shares exciting dishes for the holidays and other special occasions, including Mexican Thanksgiving Turkey with Chorizo, Pecan, Apple, and Corn Bread Stuffing; Spiral-Cut Beef Tenderloin; and Red Pozole (“a Mexican party in a bowl”), which she served on her wedding day. Desserts like Triple Orange Mexican Wedding Cookies, Scribble Cookies (sandwich cookies filled with chocolate), and little Apricot-Lime Glazed Mini Pound Cakes are sophisticated yet simple to make.
