What's the best Mexican snack to make at home?
That's a tough question! Certainly one of the most popular Mexican snacks is Tortilla Chips and Salsa or Tortilla Chips and Guacamole. Quesadillas and Tacos are handheld so easy snacks for eating on the go. Elotes, corn on the cob slathered in Chipotle Mayo, are also a very traditional snack you will find on the Mexican street food scene.
What's the best Mexican starter?
Nachos are a great and informal starter for a crowd, as is our recipe for Chipotle Queso Fundido. Tostadas are also a great starter. Two of our favourites are our tuna tostadas and our smoky chicken tostadas.
