Mexico’s independence day, September 16, is here! Today we take a closer look at four delicious dishes that honor the rich history of the country and showcase its amazing flavors.
Beans are to Mexico what pasta is to Italy: a dish that symbolizes the country’s everyday life. Hardly a week goes by in the life of a Mexican without enjoying frijoles in some of their many variations. At El Pollo Norteño we serve the yummiest beans including frijoles charros (boiled pinto beans), and frijoles fritos (refried beans).
Looking for a fitting way to start Mexican Independence Day? Then look no further than chilaquiles. These tortilla chips bathed in a flavorful sauce are the breakfast of choice for millions of Mexicans every day. A spicy, tasty alternative to kick off your morning!
Tacos are the symbol of Mexican food worldwide, and rightly so. They represent all the things that make Mexican food so great: versatile, convenient, and above all, delicious. At El Pollo Norteño we offer a mouth-watering selection of tacos that include grilled chicken, carnitas, asada, and carne al pastor.
While most people (even within Mexico) tend to associate Mexican food with dishes such as tacos or mole, Mexico also has a tempting tradition of grilled meat which is particularly strong in northern states such as Nuevo León or Coahuila. Flavorful, convenient, and simply finger-licking good, El Pollo Norteño’s grilled chicken over real mesquite charcoal is a delicious way of celebrating Mexico’s Independence day.
