When in Mexico, sample authentic Mexican cuisine. There is no better place to try it than at Daiquiri Dick's Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta during their Weekly Special's Menu. This runs from January 19 to 25, 2015 and dinner is served 5 to 11pm.

Mexico is a large country made up of many different regions and each one has its own set of recipes but the staples of Mexican foods are typically corn and beans. Corn is used to make masa, a dough for tamales, tortillas and gorditas, Mexico's version of a pita pocket, and it is also eaten fresh, as corn on the cob and as a component in a number of dishes. Squash and chili peppers are also prominent. 

The most frequently used herbs and spices are chili powder, oregano, cilantro, epazote, cinnamon, honey and cocoa. Chilis, fresh and dried, play key roles and chipotle, a smoke-dried jalapeño, is also a favorite. Many Mexican dishes also contain garlic and onions.

Next to corn, rice is the most common grain in Mexican cuisine. The Spaniards introduced it in early 1500s and this sparked one of the world's greatest fusion cuisines.

The country offers a wide variety of regional favorites and you can sample some of them during the Special Mexico Menu. Executive Chef Ignacio Uribe and Sous Chef Hugo Mejia have compiled a great list.
