Chicano mexican culture food and beverages

  1. 1. Chicano/Mexicano culture: food and beverages<br />By Miryam Hernandez<br />
  2. 2. Tamales originated from the Aztec culture.<br />The Spanish brought this food to the new world and spread all around the world.<br />The inside of a tamale can be filled with just about anything. Cheese, beef, chicken, etc…<br />They can be frozen to be eaten at later day. Up to three to four moths later. <br />They can be found in just about any restaurant.<br />In the Hispanic culture, Mexican families sell tamales from their home and sometimes outside Mexican markets like Superior for about a dollar.<br />
  3. 3. The lower class consumes tortillas on a daily basis while the upper middle class prefers to consume tortillas as part of their diet not on a daily basis.<br />Tortillas are inexpensive and easily to make. <br />Tortillas can be made by hand or are produced by a machine that mixes the components and flattens the product into a round shaped tortilla. <br />Tortillas like bread can be stored in the freezer for several days to be eaten at a much later time. <br />
  4. 4. Tortillas can be used to make taquitos, tacos, chips and enchiladas. <br />During the 1700s Spaniards, Indians ad Mestizos consumed food that derived out of necessity, some foods include tripas, menudo, and cesos. In English translation, intestines, pig fat in pre-Columbian soup and brains. <br />Pozole is normally eaten by Hispanics during Christmas and now most commonly on new years eve.<br />One pozole myth is that pozole can cure a hang over. This is not true.<br />
