Mexico is a very diverse region as well as a culinary powerhouse. There are seven distinct regions in this country and each has their own specialties that they're known for. Guadalajara is located in the North Pacific Coast area and the cuisine there is famous for dishes such as birria (a meat stew) and pozole .  Oaxaca is in the South Pacific Coast region, and this region is revered for itsseven different types of moles (Negro, Rojo, Coloradito, Amarillo, Verde, Chichilo and Manchamantel). The Yucatan peninsula's cuisine is steeped in the tradition of the ancient Maya, with strong external influences from the Caribbean islands. Here you'll find bold recados--pastes made with chiles, herbs and spices. This area also makes liberal use of achiote, honey and tropical fruits like tamarind and sweet green papaya. Mexico City, the nation's capital, is the country's culiary melting pot. Foods from the various regions are popular here in standing restaurants and through the street vendors that can be found all over the city. Your choices in Mexico City are wide open and you can find barbacoa, carnitas, moles, tacos, and tortas.

Most of our Mexican recipes are relatively easy to make and have all been thoroughly tested in our test kitchen. To make it convenient for these recipes to move from our kitchen to yours, we have an extensive collection of  Mexican chiles, herbs, and spices for you to choose from.
