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. Basic Red Chile Sauce - Salsa Pasilla
A classic table condiment, this salsa is essential to any Mexican cook's repertoire. This recipe is not difficult to make and its ingredients are easily sourced. The result is versatile and offers the authentic and rich flavor of the pasilla chile, one of Mexico's most popular chiles.

2. Calabacitas - Zucchini
"Calabacitas", a popular Mexican zucchini dish with as many versions as there are cooks. This version of calabacitas is ideal for the seasons when fresh corn is not available. It's an easy recipe with bright, flavorful results.

3. Rustic Salsa Verde Recipe
A hot salsa recipe that is bursting with rustic goodness. Plus a little background on one of Mexico’s most important ingredients, chile. Salsas or sauces are a fundamental part of Mexican food and this rustic salsa will likely become one of your go to condiments.

4. Caesar Salad - Lime and Hominy Style
The Caesar salad owes its fame to a US immigrant from Italy, who prospered with a restaurant in Mexico. Inspired by Caesar's Place's 1924 recipe this version pays homage to the salad's history and the place with a pair of ingredients reflecting where it all happened, Tijuana Mexico.

5. 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.

6. Mexican Refried Beans with Pineapple Salsa Recipe
16th September is Mexican Independence Day and I am celebrating this momentous occasion with a quintessentially Mexican dish: “frijoles refritos”, otherwise known as refried beans. This description, however, is a misnomer as the beans are only fried once.

7. The Drinks of Mexico - Jamaican Water
“Agua fresca”, fresh water, is the name given to a variety of cold drinks in Mexico. Not the type which comes out of a bottle or carton and is more usually known as a “refresco” or refresher, but the kind which is lovingly made by hand from natural ingredients.

8. The Herbs of Mexico - Mexican Oregano
If you believe that one oregano is much like another, you are mistaken! The oregano which most of us use in our cooking, whether fresh or dried, is Origanum Vulgare, native to the Mediterranean and part of the mint family. Mexican oregano, on the other hand, is not actually an oregano at all.

9. Veracruz - El Torito Cocktail Recipe
Little Bull, the Jarochos’ favourite tipple, packs a powerful punch. Based on heady fire water and tinned milk, both evaporated and condensed, El Torito is sweet and sickly, yet deeply refreshing – let alone hopelessly moreish and a thirst quencher redolent of warm tropical climes!

10. Veracruz - Pambazo Recipe
Tortas, huge, satisfying and nourishing sandwiches, are an essential part of Mexican gastronomic culture. While the bread traditionally used is a flat roll with a good crust known as a telera, in Veracruz a soft doughy roll is preferred for the local and very regional torta, El Pambazo.
