Mexican cuisine constantly evolves, and the latest trends and recipes in Mexican restaurant menus reflect this dynamic evolution. Recently, we’re seeing a rise in the popularity of plant-based dishes, with vegan options like jackfruit tacos and cauliflower ceviche becoming more common. We’re also seeing a renewed interest in traditional Mexican ingredients and dishes, with chefs experimenting with regional moles, heirloom corn, and lesser-known varieties of peppers to create new and exciting flavor profiles. Below are a few of our favorite trends and recipes you need to know.
Add Some Spice
Adding new spices to your restaurant menu can be a game-changer in terms of flavor and appeal. Introducing new spices allows you to create unique and memorable dishes that set your menu apart from the competition. Plus, spices can be a relatively inexpensive way to add depth and complexity to your dishes, making them a great way to elevate your restaurant’s offerings without breaking the bank.
Use Cheese Blends
A popular trend in Hispanic restaurant menus is the use of EZ melt cheese. This type of cheese differs from traditional cheese blends because it melts smoothly, creating a thick and creamy consistency. If you’re looking for a more authentic flavor, consider using queso blanco EZ melt or Amarillo EZ melt cheeses. However, if you prefer to stick with classic flavors, EZ melt processed American cheese is also an option. Whether you’re making sauce dips, these cheese blends can add an extra layer of flavor to your diners’ entrees.
