Foods of Mexico

Foods of Mexico
Tacos, enchiladas, tortillas, and even huevos rancheros are not unusual items in many American restaurants. Mexican food is loved all over the world, but Mexico’s kitchens hold much more than these dishes. Some surprising ingredients and fascinating cultural facts are in store for readers and fledgling chefs. Mexicans use prickly pear cactus, plantains, and even chocolate in their meals. A salsa recipe at the end of the book gives young cooks a chance to create their own fiesta!
