A delicious, traditional Mexican dish that consists of wheat or corn tortilla, which can either be rolled or folded with different types of fillings – a tortilla can be made using numerous fillings. You can order fillings such as pork, chicken, beef, seafood, vegetables and cheese. Tacos are eaten without using a spoon or a fork – it can also be an eat-as-you-go food or you could enjoy eating it sitting in your beach chair with a drink in one hand. It is absolutely delightful.
Another Mexican dish – one that is cooked on a griddle, quesadilla is a tortilla – you can either choose to order wheat or corn– the dish also is made with a variety of proteins and/or vegetables. After being cooked on a griddle the tortilla is then folded to form a semi-circle or the shape of a half-moon. The dish is served with salsa and vegetables.
Fajitas are a big part of the Tex-Mex cuisine – and generally refer to any type of meat that is grilled and served with corn or wheat tortilla. In authentic Mexican restaurants, the key ingredients that go into cooking the meat are onions and bell peppers. The condiments used include guacamole, salsa, cheese, tomatoes, sour cream and pico de gallo.
You can think of burritos as another variation of a taco – the only difference is burritos are rolled with fillings instead of being folded. The bread is usually wheat and corn tortilla and the dish is made with a variety of fillings, which include beef and chicken. The fillings also include rice, fried beans and various sauces and vegetables.
Nachos con totopos
Nachos are considered more of a snack – or an appetizer than a complete dish. However, they are delicious and you might just order a couple of plates – that is before you start your main meal. Anyways, nachos are basically chips made from tortilla or totopos, which are covered with a heavy layer of absolutely delightful cheese and cheese-sauce and also include a heavenly topping of jalapenos and olives.
All in all, these are some amazing dishes from our Mexican cuisine you can enjoy while on your private tour with Absolute Adventure.
