Top 5 Mexican Street Foods

Which Mexican street food is the greatest?

There are many kinds of Mexican street foods. But, in my outlook, the best street foods are always ones which contain either meat or cheese because I love the two ingredients more than vegetables; even though I strive to always include vegetables in the foods I eat daily, I am not as big a fan of eating vegetables as either meat or cheese. My picks of the best Mexican street foods:

  1. Fajita: fajitas are basically tortilla wraps with fillings, such as meat, cheese or vegetables.
  2. Burrito: burritos are tortilla wraps, as well, with fillings, such as meat, beans or cheese.
  3. Tacos: tacos are tortilla wraps with fillings, such as meat, cheese or vegetables, and at times a hot sauce.
  4. Nachos: nachos are basically tortilla chips that are smothered with cheese.
  5. Quesadillas: quesadillas are warmed up tortillas with fillings of cheese.

The Puzzle with Faux Meat

Can a replacement for meat actually taste good?

As meat-lover, I could never part with the idea of going without meat for a prolonged period of time. But some alternatives to meat can be the tastiest food on the block: tofu, nut roast, tempeh (the healthiest replacement for meat) and paneer, are a couple of good examples which can easily replace meat in your diet, particularly in fried-form, and the meal would taste just as good. In the market, there is also an equally big supply of replacement for meats. Those could be used to make a different edition of your favorite dish and if you are smart then it will be tough to find out the difference until you actually give what you are eating more thought.

A good idea to try this out with is a vegetarian patty. It could easily replace a meat patty to create a burger. But what you will need to do to really make the veg burger almost as tasty as a meat burger is further add between the buns of the burger two or three cheese slices, two sliced onions, enough of mayonnaise (on the white sides of the buns) and also tone down the amount of sliced tomatoes and the size of the lettuce. The idea here is that if you have enough of some of your favorite non-meat foods inside the burger, then eating it will no longer feel like you have to compromise on taste because your burger is going veg.
