If you’re visiting New Mexico or just want to try some New Mexican food, it’s important to understand the differences between Mexican dishes. What comes as common knowledge to some may be brand new for others. To better understand the menu, I’ve compiled a list of dishes (with their descriptions) so if you’re at Acapulco Tacos & Burritos or another restaurant, you have a good understanding of what you’re ordering. So without further ado, here are the top three dishes of Acapulco’s Tacos & Burritos.
Tacos: If you’ve ever seen any type of film that mentions Mexican food, it’s safe to say tacos are insanely popular. There are reasons for its fame and no two tacos are ever built the same. The taco is a conventional Mexican dish that consists of small hand-sized corn- or wheat-based tortilla filled with different meats, cheeses, and veggies. It is then folded around the filling and eaten by hand. At Acapulco Tacos & Burritos, we offer a plethora of different options that will keep your belly filled and your pockets not hurting. The downside of this dish is that it takes many of these tacos Albuquerque provides to fill you up, which is why we keep prices as low as possible. If you’re looking to be filled up in one sitting, keep reading about our next dish.
Burritos: Competing in Mexican dish fame, the burrito is the next choice if you are looking to get more of a bang for your buck. Like the taco, burritos have many different recipes that can leave you completely satisfied. A burrito is a traditional Mexican cuisine, consisting of a flour tortilla wrapped into a sealed cylindrical shape filled with various ingredients. The tortilla is sometimes lightly grilled or steamed to soften it. Burritos are often eaten by hand, but can be eaten with a fork and knife if it is too big to hold with two hands. As you can tell, most of the famous Mexican dishes are hand held dishes, but what if you don’t want to get your hands dirty? This leads me into the final portion.
Mexican Plates: Our Mexican cuisine includes different plates that consist of traditional foods of Mexico. Its earliest roots lie in Mesoamerican culture & cuisine. The Mayans are considered the first to create such delicious meals since they were the first group of people known to domesticate maize. These dishes like enchiladas and huevos rancheros are to be eaten with a fork and knife instead of the traditional dishes that use your hands.
