The idea of Mexican food tends to conjure up pictures of hot chile peppers and tacos covered in searing salsas. It's a pity, for the range and sheer variety of Mexican dishes is almost infinite. The cross-fertilisation between indigenous Indian methods of cooking and ingredients and imported Spanish colonial ideas resulted in one of the most exciting cuisines in the world.
European food would be different today but for the use of the tomato, the hot chile pepper, chocolate, vanilla, the potato and the turkey, which all originated in the Americas, while the Mexican today would not like to be without pork, cheese or the sweet egg and milk desserts, imported by the Spaniards.
