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. Molcajete - Mexican Mortar and Pestle
The best Mexican food expresses flavor through layering. The molcajete is the most basic tool used to achieve complexly flavored food. Among Mexican cooks molcajetes are prized for the flavor fingerprint each cook's molcajete represents.

2. 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.

3. Chia Seeds - Ancient Superfood
Newly popular chia seeds have an ancient origin and have never lost appeal in their native Mexico. This article gives a closer look at the seed and a tasty way to introduce them into your diet and Mexican food repertoire.

4. 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 article is a good start to mastering salsas.

5. 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.

6. The Drinks of Mexico - Barley Water Recipe
In the steamy, tropical climate of the Yucatán Peninsula, a chilled agua fresca or fresh water like the typical and regional Agua de Cebada or barley water is heaven in a glass.

7. Sweet Mexico - The Day of the Dead
For the past week, the market stalls in Taxco have been decorated with brightly coloured tissue paper cut-outs of pumpkins and skeletons and some very seasonal goods have made their annual appearance.

8. 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.

9. Pork Carnitas Recipe
Tender, succulent, rich and satisfying, Mexico’s carnitas are one of the most irresistible of Mexican dishes. The very first thing I look out for when I set foot on Mexican soil is a street or market stand which is serving them and then I know I am home again at last.

10. 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.
