Hello and welcome everyone. Today I am going to talk authentic Mexican food!!! Yummy! Now I am not talking about Taco Bell or other “Mexican” restaurant or fast food places. Now don’t get me wrong, they are great places to eat and the food isn’t bad, but it isn’t at all like the food we eat in Mexico. Mexican food is so good if you in get to try real authentic dishes that we eat every day or at parties.
One of the biggest differences is that in Mexico,m we don’t eat flour tortilla that much. Maybe yes for a burrito, but 95 percent of the time, we eat corn tortillas (Tortilla de maiz). This kind of tortilla is what we really use in tacos.
Tacos for us is everything. We can literally make a taco out of anything. We put meat, beans, rice, vegetables, and even eggs for morning tacos. No matter what, we eat everything mostly as a taco/ with tortilla. Tacos are probably the first food you think when you hear Mexican food, but there are so many more delicious dishes than tacos. So I am going to talk about some you probably haven’t heard of if you aren’t a Mexican foodie.
First order up, barbacoa. Now a barbacoa is type of taco,MN but it is special. This type of dish is mostly made on special celebrations or parties. Which us Mexican have alot because we find any reason to party and have fun. A barbacoa is made from beef. But in my family and most, we love fresh meat so we go the day before we cook it and actually go to kill a about cow so the meat is tender and fresh. This is perfect to cook for parties. We cook the meat in bag and put it a special pot. In the pot, there is water boiling but half way up there is an did divider with holes that sustains the beef. The beef cools from the water vapor the water makes inside. This is a long process. After it is cooked, we spice the meat with and hot sauce and it turns out to be a spicy meat. We then use the leftover broth and make a soup with rice and garbanzo beans in it. Then we eat the soup as a side dish with the meat.
Another famous dish is called mole. Mole is a type of spicy sauce. It has a thick consistency. It can either be green or brown depending on what you use to make it. First you make a powder from chile flakes and add other spices. Ten you use the powder to make the sauce. The sauce is usually poured over chicken and rice.
