Mexican cuisine is known for its tortillas, quesadillas and fajitas but there is so much more to discover. The depth and history of the Mexican cuisine make this a popular choice around the world. Restaurants, cafes, stores and supermarkets all sell Mexican recipes. The recipes are amazing, but also the combination of ingredients. Even so, the recipes remain very simple.
The Spanish conquered the Aztec Empire in the 16th century and introduced other ingredients. Importantly meats from domesticated animals (beef, pork, chicken, goat, and sheep). Also dairy products especially cheese and milk, and rice. African and Asian influences were also introduced into the indigenous cuisine during this era as a result of African slavery.
