Let me tell you about my love for Mexican cuisines. My grandmother is from Mexico, and my cousins and I have always grown up eating Mexican food. My grandma cooked, the kids helped and of course learned some of the recipes along the way.
We had dinner with her every fortnight, and it was a ritual — one of the perks of having a Mexican grandmother. Even now I follow this ritual, with my husband and kids, we enjoy delicious Mexican dishes all the time. Thank god, my husband and kids also love Mexican food, or maybe they just love me.
When it comes to Mexican food, one of the most essential ingredients is the Cheese, yes, Mexican shredded cheese. This cheese can make anything taste good.
Here are my four favourite dishes, Quesadillas, tacos, burritos, and nachos; I often cook these during our family Mexican nights. The secret ingredient for all of them is my favourite blend of Mexican cheese.
A quesadilla is one of the most famous Mexican dishes, consisting of a tortilla filled with cheese and cooked in the grill. Quesadilla is usually filled with Mexican cheeses, but you can fill it with your favourite ingredients like chicken, mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, onions, beans, or other vegetables.
Crispy on the outside and juicy, spicy, and molten inside; Quesadillas are super delicious and my favourite. Monterey Jack, Oaxaca, Asadero, or Queso quesadilla are some of the different Mexican cheeses that taste amazing in a Quesadilla.
I don’t prefer using these cheese individually because Monterey Jack melts beautifully but can be a bit bland, Asadero is creamy and smooth, and if I use just cheddar, it becomes too sharp. So I use the blend of these cheeses, which gives my Quesadilla the perfect taste and texture.
Tacos are a traditional Mexican dish. This simple dish consists of a corn tortilla shell with a filling. Again, whatever you want to fill your tacos with, is up to you. The tacos are then eaten by hand.
Tacos are crunchy, messy, and a fun dish to eat, no wonder tacos are such a big hit. For tacos, again,I use Mexican shredded cheese, the Monterey Jack, and Asadero gives the perfect texture, and cheddar gives the sharp taste to the tacos.
Burritos are the best; they are an easy, quick, and filling meal. Burritos consist of a folour tortilla wrap consisting of savory fillings, most often meat, rice, cooked beans, vegetables, and lots of cheese.
Burritos are one of the portable Mexican meals that can be customized to suit all tastes. All you have to do is add your favourite ingredients.
We often eat nachos asa loaded appetizer on our Mexican nights. Nachos is a Tex-Mex dish that consists of corn chips that are covered in salsa or cheese sauce, or both.
I prefer cheese sauce on my Nachos and to prepare the cheese sauce, I use shredded Mexican blend. Sometimes I just top the nachos with shredded cheese and put it in the oven for a few minutes, but turning yor shredded blend into a cheese sauce make for the cheesiest nachos ever!
