The journey starts about 9,000 years ago with the formation of Mayan agricultural communities. These changes facilitated the domestication of maize as a food source in Meso America. The Aztecs in central Mexico had the following staples by the period of Spanish conquest: maize, beans, sqwuash, amaranth, chia, avacados, tomatoes, cocoa, vanilla, aguave, turkeys, sweet potatoes, cactus, and chili peppers. In the 16th century, the Spanish brought new foods that became incorporated into the native diet. The most important European contribution to the native cooking was domesticated animals. dairy products, and rice. African and Asian influences evolved into Mexican recipes, resulting from the African slave trade and later the Manila-Acapulco Galleons brought Asian commerce into the Spanish colony. Over the centuries since Spanish colonial times, Mexican food has evolved into regional cuisines influenced by each local. Come and sample our local Mexican restaurants, and savor the flavor.
