LEARN HOW TO ORDER MEXICAN FOOD LIKE A PRO

Hola Amigos!!!! means 'Hello Friends'!!! ehem.. ehem...I am learning Spanish? Don't you think this is a common phrase to us?

Let's learn about typical Mexican Food. I bet you can travel to Mexico and order food like a pro after read this post. Your friend will jaw drop to hear you order Mexican Food without even looking at the menu. kekekeke...Well.. Mexican food basically... 

TORTILLAS

Tortilla is usual in Mexicans menu since it can easily make with flour. Tortillas often served with meal as bread or used in typical dishes. eg. rolled and baked for enchiladas, fried for tacos or grilled for quesadillas.

BEANS (FRIJOLES)

Don't hate beans. Beans is a good source of protein. Most beans are commonly boiled and then fried as garnish.

CHILIES

Chilies are great for anti oxidant source. Ours in Asia mainly slim and small chilies which gives hot and spicy effect. Well..in North American Countries the Chilies main big and the bigger the chili the milder of its flavor. 

GUACAMOLE

One of my favourite after watch famous Venezuela drama. WTH!!!! Guacamole is basically avocado mashed with onions, chilies and cilantro (other words is coriander). Served as a dip and I normally love this with my wrap or sandwiches.

SALSA

Well...my dear Amigos!!! this is not type of dance. Salsa is just a sauce. Mainly with red or green mixed of onion, tomatoes and chilies with coriander.

You have learn about Mexican food...now let us learn about typical dishes so you won't scratch your head much when you read the rest of my post. hehehehehe...I rolled my tongue a lot when read the menu. WTH!

Typical Mexican Dishes :


CEVICHE

- which means raw fish marinated in lime juice , often in a chopped salad

CHILES RENELLO

- this basically a large fat Poblano Chilies stuffed with cheese or spicy mean (picadillo). As I mentioned earlier the bigger the chilies the mid taste it become. Extra caution the sauce may not taste as mild as the big chilies.

ENCHILADAS

- just a tortillas coated in tomato and chili sauce , stuffed with vegetables, chicken or beef then folded and baked. Mainly topped with sour cream. I bet this dishes is nothing new for us Malaysian it just the ingredients it different.

QUESADILLAS

- this is a simple dish and mainly served with beans or some salad. I's tortillas stuffed with cheese , folded and grilled 

TACOS

- Many of us familiar with this name. This is basically tortillas fried until crispy and served with various fillings.

TOSTADAS

- thin and crisp tortillas served loaded with guacamole , sour cream, chilies ,chicken etc.
