The best Mexican recipes - 6 recipes

Mexican food is very popular in the United States; so popular that it has even given way to Mexican-American fusion food called Tex-Mex. The key ingredients of Mexican cuisine are beans, corn and chili peppers, and popular dishes include tacos, burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, mole and tamales. Tex-Mex food is a little different, and the most popular dishes are variations of Mexican food, such as fajitas, chili con carne or taco pie.
