We just had to start with one of the most popular Mexican dishes: the burrito. The options for Mexican bites are extensive, but you can make a good case for the burrito as the headline meal. What's not to love about the ingredients found in a burrito? There is a selection of meats that include chicken, beef and pork, veg-only options, and all those delightful extras, including refried beans, salsa, cheeses and cilantro rice. Delish!

On second thoughts, maybe the taco is the bona fide Mexican cuisine. Or it could just be that there are so many options to choose from thanks to all these scrumptious meals. The variety of tacos on offer is endless: fish, chorizo, chicken, beef, black beans, chilli con carne - and that's just for starters. Dig in and enjoy an authentic Mexican experience with a tasty taco. They work as a quick snack for rumbling tummies, while also provide full-meal satisfaction.

We're showing some love for the desserts, too, because everybody loves to embrace your indulgent side, and there's no better way to follow a Mexican main course than with an exquisite dessert. Churros are fried dough pastry topped with sugar and often accompanied by a chocolate dip. Add a scoop of ice cream or, for more of a healthy option, a sprinkling of fruit or shaved nuts to complete the look. Churros really are the perfect treat to conclude your Mexican dining experience.

Ignacio Anaya, a maitre d' at the old Victory club in the Mexican state of Coahuila, created the nacho from some leftover ingredients. These days, it's perhaps the ultimate snack. The nacho even has its own international day of recognition. A crunchy bite with tortilla chips, melted cheese, salsa dips and whatever else takes your fancy, you can satisfy your hunger anywhere: at the movies, on your lunch break and, of course, in the comforts of your own home.
