Burritos, tacos, and other Mexican food are the equivalents of pizza, pasta, and burgers. Mexican food is popular around the globe because of its delicious and vibrant flavors brought about by the spices and herbs they use in their dishes. 

Spices can transform simple rice and beans into a main-course worthy dish that packs a punch. Mexican dishes are also known for using healthy and fresh ingredients like avocados, beans, tomatoes, and different types of meat to make the most mouthwatering bite. 

Mexican cuisine also boasts food that is a must-have for spicy food lovers. A wide variety of chile peppers are used across numerous dishes to create the perfect, tongue-burning sensation. Dishes that forgo the usage of chile peppers lean on the next best thing: hot sauce.
