Mexican Antojitos ("little cravings")
by Claudia Alarcon
Just as Spain has tapas and the Middle East has mezze, Mexico has antojitos. Antojitos, meaning something close to little cravings, are generally made from corn dough and fried, but there are of course- exceptions.
Some antojitos are incredibly easy to make, some require various steps and are labor intensive, but the results are so well worth it. Some are well known, like enchiladas and tamales; some are more regional and require special ingredients.
Examples of an antojito is Jalapenos Rellenos (stuffed jalapenos), Papas con Chorizos, and Sincronizadas. Serve these little cravings with the salsa of your choice, and wash down with a cold Mexican beer or even better, a nice shot of premium tequila.
Perfect with any Mexican Antojitos
