For people who are not familiar with Mexican cuisine, let us introduce you. Mexico and Thailand are both tropical countries, so the ingredients and flavors are very similar. But uniquely Mexican tastes are created when you add cheese, sour cream or avocado.
The main ingredients in Mexican cuisine are fresh chiles, cilantro, limes, beans, cheese, onion, avocado, tomato and herbs like oregano, cumin and dried chilies.
Mexican food varies from region to region in Mexico, a result of the different climates, local ingredients, and techniques learned over the centuries. Traditional Mexican recipes also vary because of the many different influences from the Mayan and Aztec Indians to the French and Spanish settlers of years gone by. Mexican food recipes are a blend of these different groups, their cooking techniques, different spices, and ingredients of the old and new world flavors combined.
