Mexico is a country with an incomparable culinary culture. One of the most famous and loved dishes by both locals and visitors is undoubtedly the enchilada. With its corn tortilla base and the variety of sauces that coat it, it’s a treat no Mexican can resist. And what better way to celebrate this dish than at the Enchilada Fair in Iztapalapa?
The enchiladas are a fusion of flavors: corn tortillas smothered in sauces ranging from tangy to mild, topped with cream, cheese, and onions. A treat that goes with Sunday breakfasts and family gatherings.
The Enchilada Fair: A feast of taste
The City Hall of Iztapalapa in Mexico City is preparing for the twentieth edition of this legendary fair. In late September and early October, this fair turns Iztapalapa into the epicenter of taste.
You can delight your taste buds with a wide range of enchiladas, from the traditional red, green, and mole enchiladas to innovative concoctions that defy all conventions. Presented by exhibitors from different parts of Mexico, these delicacies offer you a unique and varied culinary experience.
Don’t forget to bring some cash because, although admission is free, each stall has its own prices. And when the spiciness conquers your palate, refreshing drinks and delicious desserts await you.
As if that weren’t enough, a cultural and artistic program is expected to complete your fair experience.
