We know you know but we’ll say it again: Mexican cuisine is so much more than tacos, guacamole, and margarita. The cuisine is rich and varied, reflecting the many landscapes, communities, and cultures in a country that covers 760,000 square miles with coastal regions, mountainous areas, and bustling cosmopolitan cities. So we’re taking a look at some of the forgotten dishes of Mexico and heading into the kitchen to travel the country through our tastebuds. Join us.
Cochinita pibil is a slow roasted pork dish from the Yucatan Peninsula. It’s succulent with a tart taste. It involves marinating pork in a mix of acidic citrus juices then slathering it with achiote (which gives it an orange hue), then steaming it in banana leaves until it’s pull apart tender. It’s usually served with tortillas and bright pickled onions.
Huevos rancherosare the traditional breakfast on Mexican farms – this dish is meant to give you energy, fill you warmth, and hold you over until the day’s big meal. And it’s meant to be fast and easy, cooked over an open fire. It’s simple fried eggs, crisp on the outside with a golden runny yolk, topped with a spicy salsa, and served with tortillas to sop up all the goodness.
