Mexican Cuisine Recipes

Yes, "Mexican food" can be shorthand for a platter heaped with <a href="/recipes/mexico/beans/refried/">refried beans</a>, cheesy <a href="/recipes/mexico/enchiladas/">enchiladas</a> and <a href="/search/?searchTerm=chile%20rellenos">chile rellenos</a>. 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 <a href="/recipes/mexico/desserts/">dessert</a> recipes: Who wouldn't want to end dinner with a piping hot churro filled with rich Mexican chocolate?

Mangoes are a colorful, flavorful, and juicy addition to salsa. An interesting contrast in flavors occurs when mango is mixed with lime juice. Serve this low-calorie salsa with chips or use it top fish or chicken.

Tomatillo Chicken Soup

From Midwest Living

Tomatillos (the key ingredient in green salsa) look like green tomatoes with papery husks. Although they can be eaten raw, we like to cook tomatillos with other ingredients to mellow and balance their tart flavor.
