3 Dips You’ll Love With Your Mexican Food

  • Blog

Mexican food is loved all over the world. Its cheesy goodness, savory meats, and flavorful sauces make it a favorite go-to comfort food for many. According to Fine Magazine, there are about 60,000 Mexican restaurants in the United States. One of the things that people love about Mexican dining is the great dips that you can order to go with your fresh tortilla chips. Let’s look at three of the most popular dips to choose from.

1. Salsa

Salsa is by far the most popular of Mexican dips. Made with a base of fresh tomatoes, salsa brings fresh flavor from that first bite. Each Mexican restaurant has its own signature salsa recipe, but most recipes consist of a mixture of onion, peppers, and spices to create something special. Chips and salsa are often how your Mexican dining experience will start as your server will bring chips and salsa to your table upon arrival to get you started.

2. Guacamole

Guacamole, or guac as some people call it, is a fresh, creamy dip made with an avocado base. You start with fresh avocados, which grow natively in Mexico. The avocados are mashed to a smooth creamy texture. Next, customized ingredients are added. Just like with salsa, each restaurant has its own signature guac recipe. Often, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and other seasonings will be added to create a special dip. Lime juice is also sometimes added. Guac is a great appetizer for your Mexican dining experience.

3. Queso

Cheese is an important part of Mexican cuisine. Many diners love to start off their meal with an order of cheese dip, or queso. This is often made from Mexican melting cheese. This white cheese is melted with milk to create a smooth creamy sauce that is easily dipped. You can opt to have other things added to your dip as well. With beef added, this is a truly fulfilling appetizer to start your meal off with. If you really love queso, you might opt to have beefy cheese dip with homemade tortillas as your meal.

These are just a few dips you might want to enjoy at a local Mexican restaurant. If you’re looking for a great Mexican restaurant in your area, please stop by Talavera Cocina Mexicana today. We look forward to serving you delicious Mexican food!
