Mexican Cuisine

Yes, "Mexican food" can be shorthand for a platter heaped with refried beans, cheesy enchiladas and chile rellenos. But the cuisine of our neighbors to the south is much more nuanced than your local taco joint might have you believe. Authentic Mexican recipes tell another story, from the complex moles (up to 30 ingredients!) of Puebla to the rich tomato sauces of Veracruz to the rich, cinnamon-laced chocolate of Oaxaca, authentic Mexican cuisine varies widely by region and incorporates a staggering amount of ingredients and spice in sophisticated ways. And there are lots of delicious Mexican dessert recipes: Who wouldn't want to end dinner with a piping hot churro filled with rich Mexican chocolate?
