MEXICAN FOOD IN HOUSTON

Mexican foods are the best you can have. Sometimes You can never get enough of it. Here is my favorite Mexican food in Houston. Make sure you visit one if you ever visit Houston.

1. CHILAQUILES

This popular traditional breakfast dish features lightly fried corn tortillas cut into quarters and topped with green or red salsa (the red is slightly spicier). Scrambled or fried eggs and pulled chicken are usually added on top, as well as cheese and cream. Chilaquiles are often served with a healthy dose of frijoles (refried beans).

2. POZOLE

According to anthropologists, this pre-Hispanic soup was once used as part of ritual sacrifices. These days chicken, pork, and vegetarian pozole versions are readily available in more everyday surroundings. Made from hominy corn with plenty of herbs and spices, the dish is traditionally stewed for hours, often overnight. Once ready to serve, lettuce, radish, onion, lime and chili are sprinkled on top.

3. TACOS AL PASTOR

This historic dish is one of the most popular varieties of tacos, with origins dating back to the 1920s and 30s and the arrival of Lebanese and Syrian immigrants to Mexico. To create tacos al pastor (meaning ‘in the style of the shepherd’), thin strips of pork are sliced off a spit, placed on a corn tortilla and served with onions, coriander leaves, and pineapple.

4. MOLE

Three states claim to be the original home of mole (pronounced ‘mol-eh’), a rich sauce popular in Mexican cooking. There are myriad types of the mole but all contain around 20 or so ingredients, including one or more varieties of chili peppers, and all require constant stirring over a long period of time. Perhaps the best-known mole is mole poblano, a rusty red sauce typically served over turkey or chicken.
