¡Oy-lé! Can Kosher Get a Spicy Mexican Makeover?

Publish date:

Kosher cooking can get a bad rap when it comes to spice, but there's no reason you can't up the heat with the help of some kosher Mexican food.

The U.S. take on Mexican food is heavily influenced by the flavors of the border and the Mexican region of Puebla. Even Cinco de Mayo, which many think is Mexican Independence Day (it's actually September 16th), celebrates a Mexican victory over French invaders in Puebla on May 5, 1862. Like American cooking, Mexican cuisine is a hybrid, combining indigenous traditions and ingredients like corn (maize), chocolate and chilies with Spanish, French and German cooking. In the U.S., Mexican cooking has been very influential, especially in border states like California and Texas.
