Cuisine by region

North of Mexico – known for its meat dishes especially beef and wheat in the form of flour tortillas

Oaxaca region – known for its savoury tamales, tortillas and celebratory moles

Yucatan – tropical fruits feature heavily in the cuisine

Mountainous regions of the west – known for birria (goat/beef/mutton/pork in a spicy tomato-based sauce)

Pacific Coast & Baja California Peninsula – seafood dominates the cuisine

The three staples in Mexican dishes are corn, beans and chillies (hot peppers), all present before the Spanish arrived. Corn is consumed in all possible forms, but most importantly as a tortilla (a thin, round pancake made from corn dough). Tortillas are also used to make tacos and quesadillas, popular throughout the country. Avocado, tomatoes and rice also feature heavily in Mexican dishes.
