Alongside beans, avocados are a vegetarian Mexican staple. Mash them up for guacamole, or slice them for your tacos. Tomatoes are also essential, whether they're in salsa, a salad, or diced on top of nachos. Charred corn is another popular Mexican ingredient, popping up everywhere in tortillas and tacos. Finally, adding cheese to your dishes will always be a crowd-pleaser. Get your hands on some Monterey Jack, cheddar, or queso fresco to sprinkle over your dishes!
