Hi love! first of all I wanna tell you your blog is amazingg! Well, in school we have to choose a country and make a presentation about it and bring some food of the nation we chose, it's kind of a big deal and a lot of people from other grades go to the presentations among with our parents, well anyways I chose Mexico but now I don't know what food should I bring, everyone's telling me tacos but I think that's quite overrated! Do you have any favorite foods from your country?

Hi! okay first it’s great you chose Mexico, after Italian cuisine we have the largest and more various amount of dishes! also yeah, probably tacos it’s a little bit overrated and depending where you are from the tacos people know are not real Mexican tacos. I have many favorite foods, so I took the time to make a little list with recipes and images for you, because I’m really passionate about my food: 

Pozole (this is one of my favorite mexican dishes tbh, nothing like a good pozole when you are hangover or when it’s really cold outside.) 

Sopes  (Sopes are like tacos but the dough is thicker and they are absolutely delicious) 

Enchiladas Suizas (TBH enchiladas are the reason life is great and there is peace)

Tamales (This dish might be a little harder to cook since it requires quite more ingredients, but If you decide to try it it’s so worth it) 

Flan (God bless flan because it’s sweet and tasty and creamy and heaven)

More: 

Fresh waters that are typical of Mexico, Tamarindo and Hibiscus are my fave, but horchata (rice water) is very typical too, this are always on mexican events. 

Arroz con leche (or rice pudding) typical mexican dessert. 

Real mexican tortillas (If you decide to go for the tacos then please use mexican tortillas because they change everything I swear, taco bell might be great, but it’s not tacos!) 

Flautas (This are the closest thing we have to tacobell, this are hard tacos and you have them with salsa and lettuce, cream and chopped onions)

Salsa verde (great for everything)
