About Mexican Foods

Local Mexican foods are a favorite with almost everyone. They can range from mild to spicy and from hearty to the lighter side of the food spectrum. Although often associated with hot peppers and scorching salsa, these dishes often fall on the milder end of the Scoville scale of pepper hotness. In fact, local Mexican foods are often chosen because they contain ingredients like lettuce, cheese, beans, beef, and eggs. Parents can find something familiar for their children, and less adventurous adults can feel at ease as well. For this reason, local Mexican foods can be a hit with those looking for comfort food at a restaurant, and for groups with a wide variety of palates. It isn't surprising that local Mexican foods can suit a broad range of tastes. Mexico has many diverse regions, with corresponding culinary styles. Local Mexican foods like bean burritos not only fit the bill for those with mild tastes, but they contain a lot of protein, as well as fiber. If a restaurant doesn't use lard in its beans, vegetarians can always find something on the menu--sometimes a difficult proposition when eating out. Even vegans can choose local Mexican foods, as long as they make their server aware of their restrictions; often, a cheese garnish is included atop an order of refried beans. Burritos and other items stuffed with beans can also be very filling. For those seeking local Mexican foods with healthy ingredients, beans aren't the only safe bet. Guacamole is especially beneficial when made in-house. It's usually mashed with tomatoes, onions, and lime. A guacamole salad can deliver vitamin C, mono-unsaturated, or "good" fat, vitamins B, E, and K, fiber, and the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory of onions.

More on Mexican Foods

Local Mexican foods can often deliver the spicy flavor and heat that culinary thrill-seekers crave, too. Since most restaurants make their salsa from scratch, there's often an element of surprise when sampling it with tortilla chips before a meal. Some chefs create mild versions unless a spicier one is requested, but often, the degree of heat seems to be at the discretion of the person making the condiment. Stuffed peppers can provide a bit of a kick, depending on the type of pepper used, and whether or not the seeds remain in the dish, as the seeds are where the heat resides in a pepper. Local Mexican foods often include stuffed poblano peppers, which, generally speaking, are fairly mild to the average taste buds, but sometimes have a certain degree of heat. Value is another reason to choose local Mexican foods. Many Mexican restaurants offer complimentary chips and salsa, obviating the need for an appetizer for bargain seekers. Often, men find Mexican food satisfying for its heartiness, and as a result, they require less food to feel full. Lunch buffets are a good bet when seeking out local Mexican foods, as those with larger appetites can sample a variety of foods for a set price, and try items they might not purchase off the menu. Local Mexican foods can also usually be bought a la carte, which is much appreciated by those with smaller appetites.
