Traditional Mexican Foods to Try

The United States is a melting pot of multiculturalism and different groups of people sharing their customs and traditions. Unfortunately, sometimes these become appropriated and mass-produced, leaving the authenticity conspicuous by its absence in several cuisines. Mexican food is no exception to this, as the cuisines have certainly risen in popularity, and are also imitated by those who can replicate the ingredients, but not the delicate touch of the original.

A bowl of Mexican Guacamole

At Verde Kitchen & Cocktails, we believe that tradition has its own unique taste, and that’s why we’re offering some of the very best traditional Mexican foods for your dining pleasure. Read on, and prepare your appetite!


One of the most popular additions to several menus, our guacamole follows a traditional recipe of lime, tomato, onion, and avocado. No artificial preservatives or flavors, just authenticity that you can taste.

Chicken Flautas

Any other dining establishment might simply refer to these as a burrito, but we know better. Roasted chicken, potatoes, and onions are rolled into a corn tortilla and lightly fried. We then include cotija cheese and poblano verde. This is one chicken that you’ll go crazy for.

Queso Fundido 

There’s plenty to be done with tortillas, and this offering is something you might not have experienced before. Pumpkin seeds along with cheese and verde will certainly be appropriate for fall, but you’ll soon be enjoying it all year round.

Platanos Fritos 

While plantains might not be particularly popular state-side, this relative of the common banana is quite popular south of the border, especially when they’re fried. Served alongside chile and lime, this will give you your daily dose of potassium and you’ll find them quite a-PEEL-ing.

Arroz con Frijoles

Tried and true, rice and beans are one of the best combinations of basic staples around. We offer ours with avocado, onion, and cheese, giving them an authentic taste that will make these ordinary food items seem anything but ordinary.
