Here are the top ten articles for the Mexican Food Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Cinnamon Sugar Buñuelos
In Mexico the New Year marks special treats and the countdown to Three Kings Day. Buñuelos, a crispy fried treat, are among the season's favorite sweets. An old recipe from Mexico's colonial north makes a light and distinctively flavored bite. A perfect companion to coffee or hot chocolate.

2. Clay Pot Coffee - Cafe de Olla
From sweet to savory dishes, clay pot cooking imparts a delicious and unique flavor to food. An ancient secret, consider making an entrance into clay pot cooking with Mexico's hauntingly delicious sweet brew, "Cafe de Olla." A sweet coffee that is easy to make and wonderfully satisfying to drink.

3. Epiphany Bread - Rosca de Reyes
Until January 6h, the greeting remains Merry Christmas in Mexico. The season does not come to a close until the Wise Men deliver their gifts to the infant Jesus. The holiday bread, Rosca de Reyes, carries the promise of another party, as it hides a small figurine of the Holy Infant. It's delicious.

4. Lamb's Neck Tamale Filling
Lamb's neck is not a typical tamale filling, but it is a show stopper. The meat will be tender and flavorful and the chile warming and stimulating to the palate in all the right ways. This recipe is not quick, but it's easy and worth the planning to pull off an uncommonly exquisite tamale.

5. Masa Tamales - Basic Tamale Dough
Tamale recipes vary throughout Mexico, reflections of different regions and tastes, but the common point will be in the “masa” or dough. A fluffy and flavorful batter is essential to delicious tamales. As we enter tamale season, we have a primer on the substance of a tamale, the dough.

6. Turkey and Mole Sauce
Here's an origin story that goes with the legendary sauce "mole poblano," Mexico's culinary contribution to the world's great sauces. You many not have the opportunity to make a mole sauce from scratch, but a bit of improvising with a ready-made mole base provides a new life for turkey leftovers.

7. The Spanish Influence in Mexican Cuisine
The discovery of the Americas resulted in the dissemination throughout Europe of a multitude of hitherto unknown crops. But just as many Mexican foodstuffs crossed the Atlantic and were introduced to Europe, so too did non-American ingredients make their way back in the opposite direction.

8. Day of the Dead Bread
Mexico's Day of the Dead holiday is a major holiday with families and friends celebrating and remembering the dead. It is a food holiday and this sweet Day of the Dead bread is a holiday favorite.

9. Cempasúchil - Marigold Salsa and Chicken
Savory and floral, the promise of the Mexican marigold is to wake the dead; but sometimes the senses of the living could use a little enticing as well. This is a simple version of a traditional sauce that customarily is tweaked according to each cook's personal taste and style.

10. Pumpkin Salad - Ensalada Cuaresmeña
This recipe is a dessert salad, but with a hearty frontier twist. The ingredients showcase the bounty of northern Mexico's autumn harvest delights, not the least of which is the cuaresmeña pumpkin or pumpkin Castilla.
