Protein meaning maps: Mexico

Visual guide to reading protein meaning maps (white background)

In Mexico, tacos are always everywhere, mostly filled with meat and topped with white cheese and sour cream, with refried black beans and guacamole served on the side—and hot sauces, of course! Other favorite dishes include chilaquiles, enchiladas, tostadas, and many more, usually served with meat/meat products, cheese, cream and black beans as well. These are the main food products associated with protein. Nowadays, vegetarian and vegan options are more common. Obviously, there is regional variation; near the coast, fish and seafood are very popular and the main source of animal protein.

Interesting, just to mention that a bunch of tacos traditionally do not include dairy or guacamole ornot even beans: pastor, barbacoa, de canasta, carnitas, suadero, etc.
