Delicious Mexican Food to Cook at Home
Mexican food is made up of a range of beautiful, bold ingredients that celebrate flavour. However, there are a few common ingredients that crop up across a range of Mexican recipes.
Beans are a rich part of Mexican culture and its history and are a staple of Mexican food. Perfect to pair with a range of spices, beans can be utilised in many recipes to add interesting textures that can compliment or replace meats. Recipes such as Kidney Bean Chilli celebrate beans in the most Mexican way.
Another key staple of Mexican dishes, rice was brought over to Mexican lands during the Spanish invasion and is now a key element to dishes. Acting as a blank canvas to the bold flavours of Mexico, it's no wonder a range of recipes bring rice to life.
Many people believe Mexico is the homeland of the avocado, hence why its fresh flavour is incorporated into a great array of dishes. The creamy avocado in our Mushroom and Cheese Baked Tacos leaves nothing to be desired.
What's Mexican food without a bit of zest? Fresh, strong and a great way to add balance to your favourite Mexican dish, a splash of lime is and ideal way to bring this cuisine to life.
Finally, in some ways the most crucial part of Mexican cuisine, cheese adds the salty component to a range of Mexico's finest. Whether it's tacos, burritos or quesadillas, cheese is the final layer of flavour to add to these beautiful dishes.
