Must-have Dishes in Mexico
Make a trip to Guadalajara in the Mexican state of Jalisco and you'll find that Birria reigns supreme. This savory meat stew is marinated in a spicy chili-based broth and is often served during weddings, usually accompanied by bread or plated up in taco-form.
One of Mexico's most treasured recipes, this saucy goodness is usually served atop some sort of poultry or as a base for enchiladas. Perfect for celebrations, this dish comes in a range of colors, with some heirloom recipes calling for upwards of 32 ingredients.
This Oaxacan dish is one of the main reasons for the region's booming tourism industry. Making for a quick and spicy snack, the Tlayuda is made up of a small, crunchy tortilla with a schmear of refried beans, lard, pork-like chorizo, beef or shredded chicken, and a smidge of salsa.
Similar to deep-fried breaded meat, these sandwiches are made with a sesame seed-covered, brioche-like bread roll that's filled with fried cutlets of meat and then stacked with shredded queso, avocado, chipotle, and the fragrant Mexican herb pápalo. A dish that leaves you fulfilled.
