From nachos ,tacos,burritos,salsas to margaritas traditional Mexican cuisine is bursting with flavours, texture and spice….a fiesta for the taste buds. We can never get enough of this cheesy, limy, zesty cuisine which is full of corn, beans, fresh herbs, meats and cheese. Garlic, cilantro,cumin and chilli are the main spices which give a zesty flavour to their dishes.
The Mexican Chili Con Carne is a hit in my household.Its a spicy stew of Chilli peppers and meat and the other ingredients being tomato and kidney beans. The vegetarian version is known as Chili sin Carne and the white meat i.e chicken and turkey version with white beans sans tomatoes is known as White Chili.
The Chili con carne is an one pot wonder mostly made with storecupboard ingredients. A Mexican classic that goes well with a bowl of rice,guacamole,sour cream some lemon wedges and a nice green salad.I like my Chili a little dry but the authentic dish is a saucier version and has more gravy.
