How about chicken soup?

Caldo De Pollo

The ingredients should be easily available in any grocery store. It is really just a basic chicken and rice soup with some additional flavor elements. You will find many traditional recipes on the internet!

I know there are things like burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas etc but I want to make something more traditional/less popular?

Thanks

I love Mexican Seafood Stew (Caldo de Mariscos), Ceviche and Aqua Fresca :)

Has anyone noticed that this thread was started in February and the OP has never posted again?

I was thinking the same thing GG. It makes for good ideas for the rest of us but I'm sure the OP's assignment was completed a long time ago. Does anyone but be get slightly annoyed when the membership is asked for help and the original poster never says another word? Just seems rude to me.

So true Dawg. Most of the Mexican dishes that are eaten in this country have been modified to the Americal palate. So now it has become Amer/Mex food. The closest you are going to get to true Mexican food in this country is in the southwest. Texas, New Mexico, etc. The closest you are going to get to true Mexican dishes is located at the site below. He makes trips to Mexico all the time to get the true dishes of Mexico.

You're so right Addie.

Texas gives us TexMex. I once ordered chicken enchiladas in El Paso and the enchilada sauce was canned condensed tomato soup. Another time I ordered a pizza with green chile on it and got green peppers.

The food here in New Mexico is uniquely New Mexican, a combination of Native American and Mexican food.

I've always been amazed at the scarceness of authentic Mexican food in neighboring states although that is improving with the influx of Mexican migrants.

The small Mom & Pop Mexican places in San Diego used to be incredible. But they slowly got squeezed out by the Mexican Restaurant chains, where the food was definitely Americanized. It made me sad to go there to visit, and not be able to find an honest-to-goodness shredded beef taco, or carne asada burrito. I used to love the Mexican food in that town, with the fresh tortillas, softened in hot oil, and the wonderfully authentic flavors. Now, I find that with the never ending growth of the town, it hasn't gotten better. For me, the town has lost much of its charm.
