The cuisine in Mexico is a mixture of Mesoamerican indigenous dishes with Spanish and African influences, largely as a result of slavery. Beans and chili peppers are staples of the daily diet. Regional cooking developed over the centuries, with Oaxaca, Veracruz and the Yucatan Peninsula particularly noted for exceptional local cuisine.
