The Southwestern cuisine was created at the influence of Spanish, Mexican and Native American cultures. This influence took place, especially in New Mexico, but also in Arizona, Utah, Colorado and California. The cuisine that has formed has become iconic to the United States Southwest with having many similarities between Mexican food and a unique twist to it. The beginning of all this food style influence came from the legacy of the Aztecs, who were dining on beans, corn, chilies, avocados and onions. All these foods were present throughout the time, even before the Spaniards arrived in the New World.
According to Nicole Whitney, “Mexican cooks use lots of spicy peppers. Lovers of Mexican foods enjoy it for its flavorful kick, use of fresh aromatic ingredients and colorful presentation. Mexican cuisine incorporates the cooking of ancient Aztec and Mayan Indians with ingredients and cooking techniques that originated from all over the world to create its unmistakable flavor.” (Whitney).
