Something about the maiz: In my country corn is the main food. We have a big variety of ways to eat it: tortilla of course, quesadillas, gorditas, tlacoyos, sopes, tamales (with salt or sweet), esquites and for beverages also like atole, tesgüino, pozol and many others. We also eat it like it is, you can find people that sells warm corn in the parks or in the markets, and of course you can do it at home, you can put lemon, salt and chile on, or mayonese, or cheese or nothing... just like it is.
