Traditional Mexican Dishes for Christmas
Celebrating Christmas all around the world is nothing short of amazing. You’ll love learning all about the food and fun that people in other countries have celebrating Christmas. Mexico is one of the most festive countries in the world during Christmas time. Mexico is full of light and music, food and fun during the Christmas season. Here are some traditional Mexican dishes served during Christmas festivals and parties.
One of the most common Christmas foods served in Mexico is pork. For Christmas dinners, pork tenderloin is often served with a chipotle sauce. You can also amp up the spice in the pork tenderloin by cooking it with peppers. Although wild turkeys are native to Mexico, pork is the meat of choice in many areas of the country.
Perhaps one of the most popular dishes all throughout Mexico is tamales. There are several different types of tamales. You may have tasted pork or chicken tamales wrapped in a corn blanket with corn husks on the outside. Tamales are also wrapped in banana leaves as well. There are also red sauce tamales (which are medium spiced) and green sauce tamales (which are spicier). You can make cheese tamales, and fruit tamales are also popular.
If you are thinking of soup, no soup says Mexican tradition the way pozole does. Pozole is another pork dish, with onions and peppers. Just like tamales, pozole is different depending on what area of the country you are visiting. You will find pozole with tons of spice, cilantro, rice, and even lime. If it sounds like pozole takes a long time, it does. However, there are tons of slow-cooker pozole recipes you can try, which will make the recipe simpler to make.
