A Touch of Mexican Magic
Mexican cuisine is as vibrant as the land it hails from. With the rustic wholesomeness of beans and corn, the juicy touch of tomatoes and onions, and the irresistible gooeyness of cheese, Mexican cuisine has something for everybody and has found a place in the hearts of people all over the world. Not only have Mexican restaurants opened in many Indian neighborhoods, but even bakeries and small eateries have one or two popular Mexican choices as part of their main menu.
The best part about Mexican cuisine is that there is a lot of variety. You can plan a complete party menu with dishes that don’t seem repetitive. Take the Mexican Nacho Soup and the crunch of the nacho garnish makes it a great hit.

Have a shot at the Mexican Cheese Fondue and the cheesy gooeyness will pamper your palate.

etc., many of these can be stocked up, while others can be prepared in advance and kept ready to be assembled before dining. Some ingredients like salsa and nacho chips are also available readily in stores so you can buy them if you are very hard-pressed for time.

Crispy treats for your tooth and taste buds, Nacho Chips have a characteristic texture that is quite different from other chips, perhaps due to the combination of maize flour and plain flour. While a sprinkling of carom seeds and oregano imparts enough aroma and flavour for most purposes, you can add a little chilli powder if you like your chips spicy. Enjoy crunchy Nacho Chips with your favourite dip.
A flavourful and healthy avocado-based dip, Guacamole originated in Mexico but has now become popular all over the world not just as a dip but also as a salad dressing and sandwich topping. Ensure you take ripe avocados to avoid a raw taste that displeases the taste buds!
Once you have made the right choice of fruit, there is nothing more to this dip that chopping and mixing in varied ingredients like tomatoes, onions, garlic, etc. A dollop of fresh cream enhances the texture and mouth feel, while the lemon juice imparts a refreshing tang and also prevents discoloration of the avocado pulp.
You can also chop or slice avocado and use in recipes like Tostadas, Veg Mexican Tostadas Recipes
