Mexican Food

There are many popular Mexican food items that you can choose from to sell at your stalls such as a taco, an enchilada, a churro and many more. For more food inspiration for meal planning Mexican Food as well as information on the stalls we offer, make sure to read on…


Enchiladas/ Burritos

An enchilada is a tortilla dipped in sauce and filled with pork or chicken. Enchiladas are quite similar to burritos – however, enchiladas consist of tortillas made from corn whereas burritos are made from flour.

Both dishes are flavourful and taste equally as good and are very popular in Mexican/ Latin American restaurants. Enchiladas are usually covered with tomato and chilli pepper sauce, which is more of a spicy dish compared to burritos.

If you are looking for more of a healthy meal, then burritos are your best bet. This is because they are high in protein and carbs and give you a good energy boost. Burritos are full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.



Next, we have tacos. Tacos are a hugely popular dish in Mexico due to the range of options available. For example, you can choose your preferred type of meat and they can also be made with fish or other seafood to suit pescetarians.

Vegans, however, can substitute meat or fish for beans, rice or potatoes – and we can ensure you that the tacos taste just as good! Tacos are high in protein and are a perfect dish to sell at your stall, whether you’re serving a meat-eater, vegan or vegetarian.



Yes, you read that right, churros are a well-known Mexican dish and are soft, crunchy and not brittle. They are perfect for a treat and are an excellent snack if you need that extra bit of sugar in your diet.

You are bound to attract customers by selling this snack as everyone likes a churro – I know I do! Churros are a delicious snack to be eaten on the go as they are a very versatile dessert option.


Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

This dish is a popular breakfast dish in Mexico. This is a quick and easy meal to prepare. For the fruit salsa, all you need is fruits of your choice, chop and mix them up. It is tradition to use cinnamon chips as a side dish to allow for that extra bit of flavour to be added to your meal.

This is considered a healthy breakfast as there is lots of fruit involved in this dish. This is a perfect dish for a snack and would sell well if you are opening your stall early in the morning. Festival go-ers are certain to appreciate something a little different to just yoghurt for breakfast!



Along with burritos and enchiladas, quesadillas are also quite similar to these dishes. One of the benefits of this dish is that it is quick and easy to prepare and includes a variety of vegetables/ cheese. Quesadillas are also a great source of protein.

There are so many different types of Mexican dishes that you can sell as most people enjoy traditional Mexican dishes. Due to the variety of options available, you are bound to make sales and gain potential customers.
