Mexican cuisine is often considered to be one of the world's greatest.

Much of the cuisine from Mexico feature regional ingredients that have been used for centuries. Corn was the main food of the pre-Columbian peoples, and it remains the basis for many dishes today (in addition to being the basis for tortillas -- a menu item that is served with all other meals). The cuisine of Mexico is also represented by sauces called moles. Each region has its own characteristic mole. One of the most well known is mole poblano, a combination of ground chilies, nuts, seeds, chocolate, herbs, and spices. Mole poblano is usually served over turkey.

You need to know that Mexican cuisine is not the taco "shell", ground beef-and-baked-beans fare that Tex-Mex has made it out to be. In fact, the Mexican cuisine genre contains more variety than any other type of cooking, except for French and Chinese. In that same vein, many describe Mexican cuisine as one of only three "cuisines" in the world, the other two being the ones just mentioned. The distinction between Mexican cuisine is important, given that, for example, Italian cooking, with it's relatively limited variety and "borrowed ingredients" (tomato from Mexico, pasta from China, etc.), has "dishes", but is not a full cuisine. Whatever one may think of such assertions, Mexico gave the world chocolate, tomato, avocado, chile peppers, and vanilla. Its huge variety (and quality) of ingredients make exploring its culinary wealth a must even for the recent arrival, but one must put aside all the cheap stereotypes created by "Taco Bell."
