Truly Authentic Dishes to Try

The difference between authentic recipes and fast food-style ones is vast. Fast food takes a few ideas from the original cuisine, adds a lot of fillers, and turns it into something cheap and generic. Authentic recipes, on the other hand, are those recipes which Mexicans are proud to call their own. Authentic dishes are made with the best ingredients and this means top quality meat, poultry or seafood, as well as fresh seasonal produce. There are lots of herbs and spices used in these dishes and an authentic recipe will specify exactly which type of chili or seasoning you need to recreate the truly authentic flavor of the dish you are making.

Use Authentic Ingredients for the Best Results

Tortillas, burritos and empanadas are typical south of the border dishes and there are many more besides. Flavors such as garlic, cheese, cilantro, tomato, ground beef, chilies and avocado feature in many traditional recipes, although there are other famous dishes which use seafood or another ingredient you might not necessarily think of as being typically Mexican. The best way to get wonderful results from traditional recipes is to use authentic ingredients. If the recipe calls for a fresh chili pepper rather than a pinch of chili powder, use fresh chili. Choose locally grown, organic produce where necessary for the most flavorful results.
