These are Mexican recipes from my kitchen today.Friday is almost a party mood for almost all software engineers.Last friday when I went to 17 degrees North ,a Mexican restaurant this recipe caught my attention. I loved the chips in the luncheon with Pico de Gallo otherwise salsa.I just want to introduce the taste of mexican culinary in my home and try my luck and it turned out very delicious.

 I love Mexican cuisine as most of our recipes has more or less similarities with Mexican.Known for its varied flavors and colorful combination ,Mexican cuisine had been recently added to UNESCO's world intangible cultural heritage.Coming to recipe.
