Mexico and Central America

Mexican and Central American cuisine dates back thousands of years as indigenous people learned to domesticate corn (maize.) Corn, rice, beans, tomatoes, and fresh cheese are core ingredients. Central American food has been heavily influenced by other colonizing cultures that came to the Americas, so even if you try the same dish in both Nicaragua and Guatemala, you may discover unique variations in each culture’s preparation and ingredients.
