A favourite among avocado lovers, this condiment is served with almost every Mexican dish, that’s how versatile and delicious it is! Guacamole is basically mashed avocados with lime juice, salt, onions and tomatoes.
The burrito is a delicious Mexican wrap that is known for its signature appearance. It is often packed with rice, meats, veggies, cheese, salsa, and guacamole and wrapped in a tortilla. The burrito is specially wrapped in a manner so that all the stuffing doesn’t fall out from the burrito when we take a bite.
Another extremely popular condiment within Mexican cuisine, salsa is a sweet and tangy dip that is often paired with nachos. This dip is very easy to make, just toss up tomatoes, onions, garlic and lemon juice!
This classic snack goes beyond Mexican borders! These chips are often topped with cheese, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, chicken and red kidney beans. While we can enjoy nachos just as chips, they taste much better when topped with these ingredients and served with salsa and guacamole.
