Chilli con carne on the BBQ

Everyone knows Mexico as the country of the mariachi, the sombrero and tequila, but you should certainly also discover the Mexican cuisine. ¡Caramba!

Mexican cuisine is a fusion of different cuisines. The basis lies in the Aztec culture, but Spanish and French cuisine have also had an enormous influence. The most well-known Mexican dishes are tacos, burritos and guacamole, but chilli con carne is also becoming increasingly popular.

Chilli con carne is a stew made of meat and chilli. The popular dish originates from the border area between Mexico and the United States and was originally made with pieces of buffalo meat.
