Simple Meals for Everybody
Not many everyday recipes can be described as complicated because Mexicans are busy people and they know how to make the best food without standing over a hot stove for hours. The exception to this rule is their holiday food, some of which is simple and some of which is more complex and therefore saved for fiestas and holidays. In general, this cuisine is a nourishing combination of fresh produce, a flour, or corn-based grain, meat, poultry or fish and spices. There are stews that might take hours but you can leave them to cook. There are also crockpot recipes, which will cook while you are out all day.

Ideas to Whet Your Appetite
