A few years back I had the opportunity of touring around six different Mexican states during a blog tour that lasted 17 days. Along with other 3 Spanish bloggers, we could enjoy tons of Mexican delicacies to die for. Here are some of them, my personal favorites. Enjoy your
As one of the first delicacies introduced by Mexicans to the world, I can’t say I had not fallen for it before. Anyway, we could visit Cacep factory, in Campeche, and learn about how cocoa turns into the final product. And we tried to make it too! More bitter than we are used to, it’s definitely on the top of this Mexican delicacies list to me.
Basically, any dish prepared with avocado really. Fresh, super healthy and matching with every other dish, I only wish this Mexican delicacy was cheaper in my home country! It makes for the perfect appetizer and it’s as easy to make that once you learn you’ll want to have it every day.
Cheese lovers around? Number 3 couldn’t be anything but them. Easy and quick, flour or corn tortillas get filled and folded with a savory mixture including cheese, vegetables, meat,… you name it! They make it to my personal podium for being a convenient cheap eat and Mexican delicacy food you can find pretty much everywhere.
When in Zinacantan, we visited a local home to learn how to work with wool (Fail: It’s much more complicated than it seems and takes forever!) and how to cook tortillas. Two welcoming women were patient enough to share with us their knowledge and we could have a peek into it. Anyway, I need more practice so I guess I’ll have to come back soon! A basic, they are used as bread, pasta or rice are used in other cultures. Anything and everything can go on top and you never get tired of eating them because of their neutral and plane flavor!
Also in Chiapas, a community of Lacandon Indians offered us this Mexican delicacy. Boiled in a banana or corn leaf wrapper that is discarded before eating, they can also be stuffed with a selection of ingredients. Delicious!
