written by local expert Renata Martin

Mexican food is widely appreciated in every possible part of the world. It is a treasure, even a common ground for some. And, all poetry aside, Mexico food is actually a UNESCO-declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, and having grown up embraced by this gastronomy, I can say that each dish is a way into the culture of each region of the country. 

The combination of flavors, textures, and experimentation with ingredients make Mexican food truly unique in the world, like a timeless stamp of this country’s history.

If you’re looking for a guide on different Mexico foods to try, check out this guide where I share some of my favorite dishes in our cuisine.

We Mexicans have this inside joke about how difficult it is to explain to a foreigner how each of our dishes is different because many of them share exactly the same ingredients. 

So, even though many of our dishes have lightly fried corn tortillas and cheese, it is important to mention that the art of our cuisine lies in the preparation, in the creativity that goes into bringing so many unique culinary creations into existence with just a few ingredients that are cheap, accessible and quick to cook.

Honestly, I could list countless Mexican dishes that worthily represent the country’s cuisine, but I’d never finish. 

It is (almost) impossible to create a single list of the “best food in Mexico” because there are honestly so many incredible dishes. Each region has its own typical foods that locals would boast as the best in the country. 

To help narrow down the list, have a look at this list of 32 popular Mexican foods you have to try so you can pick the ones that will whet your appetite the most on your next trip to Mexico. 

In my opinion, the only way to experience the diversity of Mexican cuisine is to try it, so if you’re up for the challenge, keep on reading.

Popular Mexican Dishes to Try

✨The 1 Thing We Never Leave Home Without…

Travel Insurance

Coming from someone who has been traveling the world for the last 8 years AND has been in the hospital 2x, travel insurance is something everyone NEEDS to get. Get a quote below!

1. Tacos

The list couldn’t start any other way. If you were to ask on the streets of Mexico what is the favorite food of the locals, the most repeated answer would probably be “tacos”. 

But you might not know that each person giving that answer could be referring to something completely different. 

Tacos come in a variety of colors and flavors, with several kinds of meats and tortilla preparation: there are tacos with salsa roja (red sauce), others with salsa verde (green sauce), with guacamole or pico de gallo, with pineapple or caramelized onion. 

Traditional tacos are made from corn tortillas but you can also get flour tortillas if you prefer.

My favorite, hands down, are the tacos “al pastor” which is based on the lamb shawarma brought over by Lebanese immigrants.  Al Pastor tacos have a slightly sweet tangy taste and is often served with grilled pineapples, sprinkled with a lot of cilantro and onions.

If you want an overview on all the different types of Mexican tacos, check out our post.

Different Kinds of Mexican Tacos

Insanely enough, there’s a TON of different types of tacos. I could list them all here but if you’re traveling to Mexico, here are a few MUST-TRYs.

Taco Al Pastor

This spit grill slices of pork is cooked Lebanese style and is often served on corn tortillas and pineapple. You also have an option to add cheese if you want to. Afterwards, you top it with fresh onions, coriander and lime. It is one of the BEST Mexican dishes out there and is a favorite of mine.

Barbacoa Tacos

Barbacoa is a type of taco made from either beef, lamb, or goat. The meat is fall off the bone as it is often slow cooked with dried chilis and a ton of other delicious Mexican spices.

Carnitas Taco

Carnitas are essentially the Mexican equivalent of pulled pork. It is juicy (when done correctly) and is braised and simmered down until it can be shredded.

Tacos de Pescado (Fish Taco)

If you order a fish taco in Mexico, you can expect to find either grilled or fried fish fillets topped with a pico de gallo, sourcream or a lime crema. Some add pickled onions to give it a tangy taste! This type of taco is often found along Mexico’s seaside destinations.

Birria Taco

Originating from the state of Jalisco, Birria is a traditional stew (usually made with goat). The meat is then shredded, placed in tacos and is dipped in a savory sauce. Birria is one of my favorite tacos so I will be sharing more about it in the later parts of this article.

Chorizo Taco (another favorite)

Made from ground pork, chorizo tacos are another favorite Mexican food which I recommend you try! It has a smokey flavor to it which you don’t get from other taco meats.

2. Enchiladas

As a matter of fact, enchiladas are my favorite Mexican food. Enchiladas consist of a rolled corn tortilla that usually contains shredded chicken or other stew.

The fried corn tortillas are dipped in red or green salsa (the ones with salsa verde are called enchiladas “suizas”), and topped with fresh cheese and sour cream. 

This preparation may vary depending on the restaurant and the region, but it is overall a very accessible dish that can be found and enjoyed in any part of the country. It is usually served with refried beans and is a hearty heavy meal.

The refried beans add a velvety thick texture to the enchiladas which I love.

3. Gorditas (Mexican Sandwiches)

Gorditas are some of the most popular street food in Mexico and is worshiped in several regions of the country – especially in the northeast. 

They consist of a small round tortilla “pouch” that can be stuffed with a variety of fillings, such as potato, black beans, chicharrón, chorizo, or others. 

It can be prepared with either corn tortillas or with flour tortillas. In a very different, but also delicious preparation, gorditas can be a dessert – these are called gorditas de nata and can often be typically found at state fairs or in the tianguis and markets.


4. Sopes / Huaraches

The reason sopes and huaraches share the same entry on this list is that both dishes consist of a thick bed of corn, something like mixing several corn tortillas, covered with fresh cheese and meat with different toppings.

The main difference between the two is simply the size and shape: sopes are round and smaller, and huaraches are long and oval.

5. Quesadillas / Memelas (Fried Quesadilla)

“Queso” means cheese, and the “illa” comes from “tortilla” – hence, the word quesadilla. With these two sole ingredients, there is nothing simpler than this popular dish. It can be prepared anywhere and in two minutes only and is absolutely delicious.

If you ask most Mexicans in the country, they will tell you that cheese and tortillas are all you need. 

However, the locals from Mexico City, the country’s capital, don’t always put cheese on their quesadillas…yes, I know,  it doesn’t make sense! Instead, they add other stews and ingredients, which is not a bad idea at all as they argue that a quesadilla is just a tortilla folded in half. 

But, if you ask me, quesadillas always need to have cheese! Memelas, meanwhile, are the fully fried sisters of quesadillas. And yes, they are delicious.

6. Tlayudas

This is a dish created from a type of corn tortilla native to the state of Oaxaca. The tlayuda is toasted in a pan known as “comal” until it has a crumbly consistency. Its size is quite large with a diameter of at least 30 centimeters, so keep this in mind if you’re not very hungry!

It can be prepared in many ways, but the most common variant has quesillo (also called Oaxaca cheese) and other ingredients such as lettuce, dried meat, and hot sauce.

It is loosely called a Mexican pizza due to the way everything is added on the top. It is a fun food to eat while in Latin America and is an extremely delicious dish. Don’t forget to squeeze some lime / lemon juice on top of it for an added zing of flavor.

7. Chiles En Nogada

A typical dish of the state of Puebla, these are large chiles from which most or all of the seeds are removed and are later stuffed with ground beef, and fruit, and then covered with walnut based cream sauce and pomegranate seeds. Sometimes, they also add some Spanish rice to the stuffing.

Visually, it replicates the colors of the Mexican flag. Does it get any more Mexican than that? That’s why this dish is most popular on special dates, such as Independence Day or Christmas.

The pomegranate seeds add a slight sweet element to the dish and breaks through the thickness of the walnut based cream sauce.

It is probably one of the slowest and most meticulous recipes in Mexican cuisine to prepare, but the result is completely worth it. These chili peppers are absolutely delicious and a must try when in Mexico.

8. Enfrijoladas

It’s that simple: a warm tortilla, folded in half and dipped in refried beans. It’s affordable, easy to make, and certainly a delicacy. You can add cheese, sour cream, and other ingredients, but either way, it is a very common dish in Mexican homes and very succulent – it may be simple to prepare since it takes just a few minutes, but the secret is in the quality of the beans and their proper cooking.

9. Tortas Ahogadas

Guadalajara, Guadalajara! When mentioning this city, the first thing that comes to mind is the torta ahogada, the most representative dish of the second largest city in the country. 

It is a salty and elongated bread split in half, called birote, which has meat (that can be of many types) and is completely bathed – literally, drowned – in fresh salsa. 

Usually, you have the option of adding a very spicy red hot sauce to this pork sandwich as well as other ingredients such as cabbage and radish. It is a lifesaver after a night of partying!

10. Chilaquiles

After tacos, chilaquiles are one of the most treasured traditional foods by Mexicans. The deep-fried corn tortilla chips topped with red or green sauce, cheese, onion, and sour cream are, as simple as it sounds, the quintessential breakfast in Mexican homes.

It is a traditional Mexican dish that is usually served with fried eggs and beans and is best eaten in any roadside stand. Think of it like topped nachos, drenched in a delicious sauce.

Undoubtedly, chilaquiles are unifying… but also divisive. One of the most important debates in the country is: Which are better, the green or red salsa? While the choice between green or red salsa falls down to purely preference, both are equally delicious and satisfying.

More tourist-friendly chilaquiles will have a ton of topping options from chorizo, beef, cheese, jalapenos and more. It is one of the best Mexican foods which I love. The fried corn tortillas take on the flavor of the sauce and its one saucy mess.

11. Esquites / Elotes Asados

This is what is called an “antojito mexicano” – which translates as a “Mexican snack”. It is not one of the main dishes but it is certainly one of the most popular foods throughout the country. 

Esquites are corn in a cup, prepared with lime juice, salt, chili sauce, chili powder, sour cream or mayonnaise with cheese and, sometimes, eloteros get creative and even add potato chips. 

Elote asado can be prepared the same way, but in this case, the corn has been put on a grill until it turns black. Corn is love, and it is the foundation of Mexico food. For this reason, it is also enjoyed in its rawest and purest form.

Elotes can be found in any street food stand and is an institution in our cuisine.

12. Sopa de Tortilla (a.k.a. Sopa Azteca)

The tortilla, usually the base or side item for most other Mexican dishes, is the main star here. And it does it quite well.

As simple as tortilla soup may sound, it is one of the beloved and most popular dishes in Mexican cuisine. It can be seasoned in many ways, but the heart of this dish really is the corn tortilla chips as the protagonist. 

In some parts of the Yucatan Peninsula like Merida, Sopa de Lima (lime soup) is considered a specialty and is very comforting. When you’re about to eat it, squeeze some more lime juice to the broth adding a tangy flavor in the end.

13. Pan Dulce (Sweet Bread)

France is not the only country known for its pastries. In Mexico we have a great variety of sweet treats that steal the hearts of every dessert lover.

From the famous conchas to the iconic pan de muerto, which is only found for a few weeks a year surrounding the Day of the Dead holiday on November 2, Mexican sweet bread is majestic. As they say: it doesn’t go to the stomach, it goes to the heart.

14. Molletes

A bolillo, which is a long salty bread, fluffy on the inside and crusty on the outside, is cut in half. Each half is the base of a mollete, which can be sweet or salty. The sweet ones are usually baked with a layer of butter, and sugar or cajeta is added.

The salty ones also tend to have butter or beans and a different topping, with one of the most common being pico de gallo (tomato, onion, and cilantro – the Mexican flag made salsa!).

15. Tamales

When it comes to Mexican cooking, tamales is right up there.

Tamales are small blocks of corn dough stuffed with a variety of ingredients. It is usually. wrapped in the corn husk and is cooked as a wrapped parcel.

In Mexico, the most common are divided into three groups: red tamales, green tamales, and sweet tamales. My favorites are the sweet corn tamales, and they are the ones I would recommend to dessert lovers.

If you want to take the tamale to another level you can try a guajolota, which is a type of bread filled called “bolillo” with a tamale inside it. Yes, that is traditional Mexican food taken to a whole next level.


16. Jericallas

Flan may not be a dessert originally from Mexico, but its Mexican cousin, jericalla, is a rather tasty adaptation of it. Made from milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar, it has the consistency of jello but is much creamier and has a unique burnt vanilla flavor to its credit.

And, although it can be found in several Central American countries, it is believed that the origin of the dessert dates back to the 19th century in the neighborhood of San Juan de Dios in the city of Guadalajara, where the nuns who lived there prepared it for orphaned children.

17. Churros Con Lechera

A churro is a dessert, deep-fried on the outside and soft on the inside. Churros are made of flour, with added sugar, and accompanied by complementary toppings such as cajeta or lechera (a kind of milk caramel).

You can find it in many street food stalls, although there are also established Mexican restaurants known for their churros.

If you want my opinion, there is nothing like a nice street stall churro! While a lot of people associate churros with the Spanish culture, churros is a traditional Mexican food and is a must try while you’re in the country.

18. Marquesitas

Originally from the state of Yucatán in southeastern Mexico, marquesitas are a delicious dessert consisting of a rolled crepe-like dough.

Inside it has a cheese known as “queso bola”, and is accompanied by toppings that can vary but often include jam, cajeta, or condensed milk.

You can find them in the carts outside churches, in street food stalls, and in other similar places. When the founders of this blog lived in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, a marquesita with nutella and cheese were staples in their weekly jaunts.

Although it sounds weird, it is SO good. Think of marquesitas as rolled up crepes which have a soft yet crunchy taste. Marquesitas is a popular Mexican foods that people enjoy when they’re out and about.

19. Arroz con Leche (Rice Milk)

The name is pretty descriptive: “arroz” means “rice”, “con” means “with”, and “leche” means “milk”. Arroz con leche, as you may have figured by now, is a dessert prepared with rice, milk, and also cinnamon. 

It’s not the typical Mexican rice, which is red, but regular white rice that is used for this dish.

The consistency may not be to everyone’s liking, but it is a popular dessert found in Mexican homes. I assure you that any Mexican will be reminded of a grandmother’s sweetness and love with this dish.

20. Pozole

Pozole is, without a doubt, one of the most representative main dishes of Mexican cuisine. It consists of a broth with different elements, such as meat, radish, chickpeas, lettuce, onion, and cabbage, among others. 

The ingredients and preparation, as in many other cases, may vary depending on the region. This is what makes Mexican cooking so popular.

However, pozole is a delicious dish in all its presentations, and it can be found in any corner of the country, consumed at any time of the day and every day of the year. Remember: it’s better eaten hot!

21. Nieve de Garrafa / Raspados

There is a lot of talk about Italian gelato, but what about Mexican nieve? The so-called “nieve de garrafa” is a type of soft, refreshing ice cream made from real fresh fruit. The flavor is very natural, as opposed to the artificial flavorings we often find in supermarket ice cream.

We also have the raspado, which is crushed ice with syrup of different flavors – often natural as well. Some can be topped with chili powder and chamoy sauce, to create what we call a “diablito”.

22. Birria Taco

Although I spoke a bit about tacos in generally, the Birria taco needs its own section (yes, it is THAT good!)

Birria is lamb (or, less frequently, beef) meat prepared with a marinade based on different types of chili peppers and spices. It is accompanied by a broth or juice known as consomé, which is prepared with a tomato sauce base.

In many restaurants, the consomé is even offered as a separate drink due to its excellent taste and popularity among hungry customers. You may not be in the mood to eat birria but might as well want to drink the juicy consomé that comes with it.

Getting a  Birria taco and dipping it in that sinfully delicious consumé is nothing short of special. If you ever get the chance, order it!

23. Carne en Su Jugo

Proud representative of the state of Jalisco, carne en su jugo is just as its name says: fine pieces of meat in its own broth, with seasonings such as onion, cilantro, and beans.

A fun fact is that the signature restaurant of this dish, Karne Garibaldi, holds since 1996 the Guinness record for the fastest food service in the world – that, I assure you, without lowering the quality of its food.

24. Menudo (Tripe Soup)

I have to be honest… I can’t get anywhere near menudo! Its smell is not the most pleasant for many people, and even less is the taste. But, for many others, it is an unbeatable delicacy – especially after a night out or during the cold season. 

For this reason, it was imperative to include this popular meat dish on the list. For those that are unfamiliar, menudo is a traditional Mexican soup, made with cow’s stomach (tripe). Its broth has a red chili pepper base and is usually topped with lime, onions, and oregano before eating.

If you’re looking for an authentic Mexican cuisine experience, try some Menudo…if you dare!

25. Chapulines (Fried Insects)

Yes, chapulines are insects! And it’s not that many insects are eaten in Mexico (although chicatanas are also consumed), but chapulines have managed to integrate into traditional Mexican dishes such as certain types of quesadilla or in some versions of guacamole.

Chapulines are a snack with a crunchy texture and a salty flavor. They may not look like it and some may even be afraid to try them, but they are a real treat! 

If you’re ever in a mezcal bar (mezcaleria), don’t be surprised if they serve you a crunchy Chapulines to go with your drink.

26. Chicharrón

Chicharrón is one of the most versatile foods. It can be a stew, a type of meat that you find in tacos and gorditas, or have a chip-like presentation that is eaten with hot sauce, chili powder, salt, and lime juice.

It is often eaten with different sauces, and the preparation also varies quite a bit depending on the type of dish desired. The flavor and texture are completely different between each type of chicharrón.

27. Tostadas

It is a fried, round base of corn or nopal with other ingredients on. These can vary, from sour cream or black beans, meat or ham, to lettuce, onion, or cheese, among many others.

It’s a simple approach to Mexican cuisine, but the best thing about tostadas is their infinite preparation options. In the Yucatan region, tostadas are often topped with seafood, giving you a crunchy base for various seafood concoctions. 

A personal favorite were the tostadas topped with tuna and avocado! The founders of this blog ate some of the best tostadas when they were in Isla Mujeres and Holbox.

28. Tejuino

The hero of many, the worst enemy of others. Tejuino does not have the most accessible and traditional flavor, but it is a refreshing Mexican dessert similar to ice cream but made from corn ferment.

In other words, it’s corn gone bad. It is to be expected, of course, that many people don’t like the taste. But those who do, enjoy it more than anything else on hot days.

29. Ceviche Mexicano

Hand in hand with its famous beaches, recognized by travelers visiting Mexico from all over the world, comes the seafood of the Mexican coast. From them are prepared some spectacular dishes, including among them the Mexican ceviche.

It is usually eaten with tostadas or crackers. Commonly made of fish or shrimp marinated in lime juice (or Mexican lemon juice), the seafood is cut into small pieces and combined with onion, cilantro, chiles, and tomato to create ceviche. 

It is a refreshing and affordable food, making it a favorite of those who love Mexican food and beaches.

30. Aguachile

Although the spiciness level may vary, this dish is only for the brave who enjoy hot and spicy food. Aguachile is common on Mexico’s Pacific coast and usually includes shrimp, lots of lime juice, chiles, onion, cucumber, and avocado.

Ceviches and Aguachile are very similar as they use the same ingredients but the difference comes in the preparation.

Ceviches are usually marinated for 30 minutes or more while Aguachiles are usually tossed in a chile-lime water then served.

31. Flautas

Flautas mean “flutes”, and as their name suggests, they are shaped like this slim musical instrument. They are little tubes filled with different stews, such as shredded chicken or refried beans, that can be found in most fondas (small family run restaurant).

Like many of the other traditional dishes in Mexico of similar fashion (huaraches, sopes, enchiladas), they are quite affordable.

32. Mole

Mole is a dish of pre-Hispanic origin that can be found in various presentations, often as a stew bathed in a thick, dark brown sauce that has been prepared with a variety of spices, including chiles and chocolate or cacao.

Mole is one of the most famous or if not, the most famous Mexican sauce and once you try it, you will understand why. The depth of flavor that you get with each bite is unlike anything else.

With variations such as mole poblano from Puebla or mole from Oaxaca, several states have given us their own versions of this dish that has become characteristic of Mexican culture. Mole Poblano

FAQ on Mexican Food: What You Need to Know

What are popular Mexican foods?

If we have to choose, the most popular Mexican food would have to be tacos and chilaquiles. These traditional dishes are famous around the world and beloved by Mexicans from all different states. 

One thing you should know though is that the idea you may have of tacos may not be the most accurate to Mexican culture. 
Tex-Mex cuisine popularized tacos as a semi-folded crispy flour tortilla with a variety of ingredients, such as lettuce, that are not usually included in Mexican tacos.

Don’t get me wrong, Tex-Mex food can also be delicious, but its approach to Mexican dishes is not necessarily true to what you can find in Mexico. Instead, you will find more traditional dishes with traditional ingredients.

Chilaquiles on the other hand can only be described as loaded nachos with sauce. It is absolutely delicious and is one of the best food in Mexico.

What are 3 common foods in Mexico?

Beans: Beans are used to prepare and complement a lot of Mexican dishes. Even if they were not mentioned as an ingredient in some of the salty dishes featured in the list, they are likely to be included in the vast majority of them.

Corn: Corn is the basis of most Mexican foods. It is the source of tortillas, which are used in the preparation of several of the dishes included in the list.

Cheese: Cheese is also very common in most of the salty dishes mentioned above, and although it is more of a low-key luxury than a staple food product, it is still incredibly common among the culinary geniuses of all regions in the country.

Is Mexican food healthy?

Mexican foods are so diverse that there is no simple answer to this question. It will always depend on the particular dish. For example, a memela (fried quesadilla) may not be the healthiest, but ceviche might be.

In general, Mexican cuisine uses many high-calorie ingredients, lots of corn doughs and sauces. But it also uses several vegetables, foods from different food groups, and ingredients with more organic origins, so it can be very nutritious as long as it is not deep fried (like churros) or immersed in fat (like menudo).

What is Mexico’s national dish?

Officially, the national dish of Mexico is the famous Mole Poblano. The best mole sauces takes anywhere from 6 hours onwards which is why the flavors are so complex and deep. This thick chile and chocolate sauce has put Mexico on the world’s gastronomical map.

There are so many different types of Moles (the one below is a Mole Amarillo) and is worth trying while you’re in Mexico.

Unofficially though, I don’t think it’s right to mention anything other than tacos. Tacos is Mexico’s Tacos, more than food, are deeply rooted in the personality and identity of the country.

Their popularity outside Mexico is no coincidence since tacos can be found day and night, on the street and in restaurants, with different ingredients and preparation styles – led by the tacos al pastor, which have become the gastronomic pride of the country.

They also tend to be cheap and accessible to the general population, influencing their widespread popularity among people from all over Mexico and the world. Mole Amarillo

Is Mexican food spicy?

Most dishes by themselves are not spicy, but most of them are not complete without a good salsa… and these are spicy. The good thing is that the spiciness varies a lot, and some sauces are not spicy at all.

However, pay attention to a rule of thumb when it comes to Mexican foods: When someone from Mexico says it doesn’t burn, don’t listen to them. It does burn, and that sensation may last for a little while.

In this case, you can take my word for it: some sauces are not that spicy, but be careful! Always taste a drop before adding it to your dishes to make sure you can handle the level of spiciness and enjoy the flavor of your food without perishing in the attempt. 

What are 5 popular Mexican dishes?

Enchiladas are one of the most common and beloved breakfasts in all parts of the country. This Mexican dish is undoubtedly a people’s favorite.

Pozole, which can be found in local Mexican restaurants called fonditas in any neighborhood.

Aztec soup, a meal that is accessible and to the liking of all palates, can be considered the Mexican dish par excellence.

Chiles en nogada, which despite being consumed more often on special dates, is one of the most popular dishes among Mexicans.

The gorditas, which in the variety they offer can fill the eye (or stomach, in this case) of people of all likings. They are indeed the flagship of Mexican street food.
