Mexican Christmas Food

Traditional Mexican Christmas Food

Mexicans have many holidays and celebrations which is one of many reasons why it is great and interesting to visit Mexico.

Mexicans are very religious people and since close to 95% of Mexicans are Christians, Christmas time (period between 16th and 24th December) is very special in Mexico.

During the Posadas everything is special in Mexico, including the food, music, drinks, children games (breaking the piñata), prayers, etc.

As stated above, one of the things that makes Mexican Christmas extraordinary is traditional Mexican food that is made only during the Christmas time (16th – 24th December).

However, before going any further you should know that Mexico is very diverse country. This diversity reflects on many things including the kinds of food Mexican people (from certain region) eat for Christmas.

For example Mexicans that live in the Northern Mexican states that border with the United States eat primarily turkey during Christmas time.

This is because these Mexican states are greatly influenced by the American culture. Of course they also eat traditional Mexican food but not as much as Mexican central and southern states.

On the other side in other Mexican states that don’t border the USA Mexicans eat traditional Mexican Christmas food such as: Bacalao, Pozole, Tamales, Romeritos, Bunuelos, Champurrado, Mexican Christmas Ponche, etc.

Bacalao is traditional Mexican Christmas Eve dish. This very tasteful Mexican fish meal is made with codfish, tomatoes, olives, onion, and chilies.

Pozole is traditional Mexican dish from the Pacific coast region of Jalisco. It is made with pork, hominy, corn grains, garlic, chicken, red chilies.

Tamales is Mexican dish made of starchy dough which is boiled in a leaf wrapper. Tamales can be filled with anything you wish including meats, cheese, chilies, vegetables, etc. The wrapping is discarded before eating.

Romeritos is a typical Mexican dish made with a wild plant known as Romerito and dried shrimps.

Bunuelos is very tasteful Mexican Christmas dessert made only during the Christmas time.

A side from Mexican Christmas dishes there are also Christmas beverages that are prepared only during the Christmas.

Champurrado for example, is Mexican Christmas beverage made with chocolate, corn flour and cinnamon. Of course there is no Posadas without the famous Mexican Ponche which is Mexican punch spiced up with some alcohol.
