Mexican recipes are often spicy, full of colour and flavour and will come with extra cheese. However a little history overview will reveal traditional recipes are not always as they seem. The quesadilla has roots that expand beyond Mexican traditions and ‘Queso’ which is cheese in Spanish was only introduced from the early invasions by the Spanish in Mexico in 1521. Mexico’s food history has experienced many influencers from different cultures, including French and American. This has helped develop their traditional recipes into something that is varied and rich in flavour.
