Mexico has a ton of great food to try and during my trip I enjoyed so many different kinds of foods. Here are five foods that you should DEFINITELY not pass up on while traveling to Mexico.


A quesadilla in Mexico is not the same thing as what people who live outside of Mexico think of as a quesadilla. A quesadilla is more similarly compared to as what we Americans call a taco. Quesadillas can be made out of either flour or corn. I am pictured above eating a blue corn quesadilla . You can put in any toppings that you would like, and generally at a quesadilla stand there are a number of things for you to put in, such as chicken, cactus, lettuce, salsa, and beef.

Sopes are small but thick round tortillas with toppings on them such as cheese, salsa, meat, and veggies. They are amazingly delicious and more filling than a quesadilla.

An enchilada is a tortilla wrapped around filling and covered in sour cream and salsa. It can be filled with various different types of things depending on your diet. My personal favorite is chicken enchiladas with green salsa.

A torta is a round Mexican flatbread sandwich. It is made out of crusty bread (called bollilos) instead of tortillas.ย The toppings that generally go inside of a torta are those you would put into a quesadilla or taco.



Pozole is a soup made out of corn, meat, chili peppers, and other seasonings. Below, Charly Cheer is teaching me how to eat a pozole in Mexico.
