La Comida Mexicana: It’s the stuff of dreams...really!🤩. About a month after we leave Mexico, we start making our list of “Antojos” (Cravings). These are the foods that we dream of enjoying next time we visit.
Speaking of dreams, one of ours is to have the freedom to visit more often than just once a year so that we can see the people we love and enjoy the food that we love more often. #dreamlife #lavidademissueños
1 & 2 - One of our favorites is ‘Pan’ (bread), especially the bread from a specific bakery near Armando’s hometown that still uses wood burning stoves. Pablo was nice enough to let me take a picture as he and his family were hard at work preparing bread for the next day. If you’re ever near Aculco, I highly recommend checking out this hidden gem in Tixhiñu.
3 - Tamales! Especially sweet tamales because they’re especially hard to find in the USA.
4 - The traditional ‘Carne Asada’ (grilled meat). This is pretty much a family barbecue but the main ingredients are grilled steak, onions, and nopales (cactus) served with tortillas, beans, and a variety of salsas.😋 5 - Helado (Ice Cream)! - Because it usually gets warm enough by noon to want a cool treat, even in December!
6 - Barbacoa - Lamb that is slow roasted in a pit and then served in tortillas with salsa, lime, chopped onions, and cilantro.
7 - Molcajete - This dish is one of our favorites from @el_rodeo_carnes_asadas , our favorite restaurant in México. It gets its name from the carved dish used to make traditional salsas that is used to present the grilled meats and vegetables.
8 - Pretty cappuccino (Because coffee 😁) 9 & 10 - Tacos... this is what REAL Authentic Tacos look like. They’re so delicious you’ll steal them right off someone else’s plate! And in case you’re wondering, these were served at a kid’s birthday party!😋 #discovermexico #discovermexicanfood #authenticmexicanfood #comidamexicana #pantradicionalmexicano #pandetixhiñu #helado #tacos #barbaqoa #carneasada #aculcopueblomágico #molcajete #tamales #worldschoolingfamily #tasteofmexico #neweyesopen #neolife #fulltimetravelfamily #dosculturas #familiabicultural #foodislife #meencanta #cappuccino #travelbusinessbabes - 1 month ago
