Mexican "street food" is Mexico's version of fast food, that is sold on the streets of every village, town and city by vendors preparing, cooking and selling their wares from push-carts, bicycles, traliers and small taquerias.  Tacos, tortas, hot dogs, burritos and quesadillas are the most common, but you'll find many other delights as well, sold on the streets of every Mexican town.

I love Mexican street food, and these are some of the recipes that I've learned how to make, from eating the food, observing the preparation and cooking processes, and talking to the vendors...
