Did you know that UNESCO recognized Mexican food for its cultural contribution to humanity? It may sound weird but one look at the wide range of rich, flavourful, healthy delicacies makes it easy to understand why Mexican food received this honour.
So what makes Mexican food so irresistible? It comes down to the wealth of spices, the interesting recipes they create with corn and the unbelievable health benefits that they have to offer.
The most common spices you will find in many Mexican meals are garlic, onions, cilantro, oregano and cumin. These colourful array of spices are more than enough to make any meal delicious; yet, there are so many other spices unique to Mexican food that you’ll enjoy.
Epazote is a very traditional herb used in Mexican food that gives it a strong, musky flavour. When it comes to chilli, there are over 100 different chilli varieties used in Mexican cooking. If you love spices then you’ll have more than you could ever want with Mexican food.
One Corn. Many Recipes
In Ghana, you can find tasty meals like Banku, Kenkey and Tuo Zaafi that are made with corn. But Mexican food has so many recipes made from corn. There’s taquitos, tostadas, quesadillas, enchiladas, flautas, tacos and the list goes on!
What makes this incredible is that each corn dish comes with its own distinct flavour, spices and combinations. You’ll never get bored of feasting on these recipes.
Numerous Health Benefits
Considering all the wonderful cuisine that Mexican food has to offer, it’s hard to believe that it still manages to be healthy. If you’re skeptical, then let’s look at 4 ingredients used in numerous Mexican meals: beans, corn, avocados, and jalapeno.
Beans and Corn are great sources of fiber – just 1 ear of corn delivers 4 grams of fiber. Avocados offer a creamy and delicious way to get heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Finally, jalapenos help lower your cholesterol and speed up your metabolism.
