Peanuts Mexican and Japanese Style
Peanuts come in many presentations and with so many flavors you’re bound to find a favorite, with mouth watering chili pepper, lime, crunchy, salty and caramel. Peanuts date back all the way to the Aztecs, where the Spanish conquistadors found the Tlalcacahuatl (Nahuatl for Peanut) where being sold in the marketplace of Tenochtitlan now Mexico City. European traders later spread the plant world wide. Peanuts are used for many things. They can be eaten as straight food, used in recipes, made into peanut butter, as well as many other uses. Concoctions made with peanuts include salted peanuts, peanut brittle or pepitorias, shelled nuts and peanut butter (in cookies, sandwiches, cups, candy bars). But in Mexico a peanut is not just a peanut; it’s equally as important as potato chips and are a must in every party or reunion. You can find peanuts in many flavors like chile y limon, Cacahuates japoneses (Japanese style), salt and lemon, habanero flavored and roasted salted. Peanuts are served at bars as well as cocktail parties and are consumed with a cold beer.
