Mexican food is hot, tasty and generally wonderful! But what will I really long for once I am gone? It’s only recently that I decided there were a few things I will genuinely miss, that I won’t be able to get in the UK. Not the real deal anyway!
Cochinita, a pork dish, with ground meat in a spicy sauce, so that it looks like a very thick salsa. Very thick! Slap it in a tortilla, add onion and special chilli stuff and voila! Muy delicioso!
The first course is a soup, which is made from the water and juices that drips from the lamb into the pot underneath. Then the main event. The meat is so tender and so melt in the mouth. Wrapped in a taco with, surprise surprise – onions and chilli, you have the perfect late breakfast!
One other thing I have become addicted to….cups of corn! I’m sure it has a proper name, but it’s just freshly cooked sweetcorn in a polystyrene cup with chilli powder and lemon. Surprisingly tasty! Most Mexican add mayo and cheese but that’s a little too much for my taste buds!
