Because our previous post was not covering all the variety we can find in Mexico streets, here is the second delivery of our favourite Mexican street foods:
- Quesadillas - These are tortillas filled with cheese and often other ingredients such as meat, vegetables, or mushrooms. They can be grilled or fried and are often served with salsas and guacamole.
