Since I am in Mexico City this week, I have taken full advantage of the culinary options here and eaten all the food. It has been amazing. So I thought I would share just a few of the things I discovered, enjoyed, sampled or avoided !
#1 LOVED : Quesadillas. Filled with mushrooms, cheese or veggies.
#2 LOVED : Tortilla soup & guacamole (in the background with some crumbled cheese on it).
#3 LOVED : Watching tortillas be made. Roll the dough, press, work the dough again, press, put on the grill.
#4 DID NOT TRY : Tequilla ! I do not drink hard liquor, but I was impressed by the margaritas and sheer varieties of the local drink.
#5 HARD TO AVOID : Carbs & fried food.There are so many carbs between the tortillas, rice, beans…. and many of food is fried. Unfortunately, this results in many people being overweight.
I made sure to try everything, but was careful with the peppers …when I say they can be very spicy, it is an understatement. And I like spicy food !
What is your favorite Mexican dish ?
