CUISINE OF TWO WORLDS / GASTRONOMIC ROUTE
WELCOME TO CHIHUAHUA
CUISINE OF T WO WORLDS
Geographic Location: In the northern region of the Mexican territory
Area: 247,087 km2.
Climate: 20 ºC (highest) – 17 ºC (lowest)
Population: 3,406,465 inhabitants
This Gastronomic Route visits the municipalities of
Chihuahua, Cuauhtémoc, Creel, Divisadero and Parral.
Rarámuris and Mennonites gathered within a same
territory, one of the biggest all across Mexico. From
here come the aromas of the nut and the apple, where
these accomplices got together to create diverse and
singular cuisines.
The color and aroma of the apple trees of the region of
Ciudad Cuauhtémoc and the slow dedicated process
of production of Mennonite cheese, take us to communities whose Dutch and German past teach us a life
lesson about the true value of work, delighting us with
a great delicacy: the wide range of handcrafted cheese
creations.
This revolutionary land produces and incites to taste
the best meat cuts from the entire Country, combined
with the vegetables harvested by the Rarámuris, runers of great endurance, fascinating natives who have
generated a cuisine based upon corn, fruit picking,
and animal hunting. These culinary wonders gather in
the impressive landscape of the Copper Canyon, the
waterfalls and the rivers that decorate the great majesty of the Tarahumara Sierra, inviting you to live the wild
smells and flavors that surround Chihuahua.
When visiting Chihuahua, you will cast the idea of
a dry and sandy place away, and you will fall in love
when you discover that its culture, history and gastronomy are the fruit of diversity, like the one on boar of
El Chepe, currently the sole passengers train in all the
Country. The railway will take you across the great canyons of the Sierra where you will admire the amazing
biodiversity that makes of Chihuahua a national pride.

BEEF MEAT
The beef meat produced in the North of Mexico has
a great quality and is prepared in many different characteristic cuts from the region, like arrachera, loins,
tips, sirloin, and loaded ribs, among others. Several
dishes are prepared with them, like machaca, machacado, discada and the typical carne asada.
APPLE AND PECAN NUT
Chihuahua is the main producer of two very important ingredients in Mexico: apple, which is harvested
in several varieties (green, yellow, red, striped, etc.)
and used to prepare different typical products and
dishes from the State like dried apple slices, roasted
apples, cookies, pies, tamales, teas, preserved products, and many more; an pecan nut, native from
Mexico, mainly used to prepare sweet dishes, desserts and beverages.
CHEESE
En Chihuahua se elaboran dos tipos de quesos tradicionales: Two type of cheeses are traditionally produced in Chihuahua:
Chihuahua or Mennonite cheese has a delicate flavor
and aroma, and a golden yellow color. It is prepared with cow milk and has a semi-hard and mature
paste. It is presented in flattened cylinders and is
very suitable for melting it. From distant Dutch and
German origins, the Mennonite community settled
in Chihuahua produces and distributes the famous
cheese that they call Chester, another characteristic
product of the gastronomy from Chihuahua.
Asadero cheese is a fresh product of threaded paste,
which is created with raw cow milk and has a great
capacity for melting. It is used to prepare quesadillas,
burritos, montados, chili pepper with cheese and
many more dishes.
GREEN, COLORADO AND PASADO CHILI PEPPERS
The native variety from the North is green chili pepper, of long shape and light green color. It is used
in rajas and included in soups and stews. When this
chili pepper ripens, it turns red and becomes colorado chili pepper, which is used to prepare salsas and
stews. Green chili pepper also becomes pasado chili
pepper when it is toasted, peeled off and left to dry.
To use it, it must be rehydrated in water, and it is used
to stuff or to include in soups and stews as well.
WHEAT FLOUR TORTILLAS
These tortillas are traditional in the North of Mexico,
where they represent every day’s bread. They are prepared with wheat flour and lard, and they have a soft
and thin texture.
CHIHUAHUA
MENNONITE OR ASADERO CHEESE
CUISINE OF TWO WORLDS / GASTRONOMIC ROUTE
GASTRONOMIC RESOURCES
TYPICAL DISHES AND BEVERAGES
OSO BROTH
It is a broth prepared with catfish, colorado chili pepper, aromatic herbs, tomatoes, green tomatoes, and
vegetables, accompanied with lime. It is said that
during the building of La Boquilla dam, the workers
were constantly fed with this fish broth, and so, they
humorously began to call it “caldo odioso” (annoying
broth). Through time, and with the same humor, it
started to deform into “caldo de oso”, not related at all
to the bear (“oso” in Spanish), and not “annoying” at all,
as it has a great flavor.
BURRITOS
These are flour tortillas stuffed with machaca or
shredded meat, stewed with colorado chili pepper,
folded, and rolled to make a taco. A variant is burritos
montados, which are first stuffed with a layer of asadero cheese and then with the meat.
CHILI PEPPER WITH CHEESE
These are grilled green chili pepper rajas with onions
and tomatoes, which are prepared with cream and
Chihuahua cheese until it melts. They are eaten with
wheat flour tortillas.
CARNE ASADA
This is the typical way to cook meat in the North,
either, arrachera, loins, loaded ribs, sirloin or other
cut. The pieces are prepared natural or marinated in
oil with oregano, laurel and beer, to then grill it over
mezquite firewood.
DISCADA
They are beef loin tips fried with bell pepper, onions,
bacon, chorizo, and finished with beer. The name and
peculiarity of this dish is that it is prepared in a traditional utensil of the northern cuisine called disc. In
old times, a worn out disc from the plow was used,
which is a piece of thick metal with a slight depression in the middle where several meals are fried and
prepared.
RAYADAS DE PARRAL
This is a sweet bread of round shape with a white
stripe (“raya” in Spanish) across it. It is prepared with
wheat and bran flours, piloncillo and aniseed.
SOTOL
It is a type of mezcal, marked with Designation of
Origin, prepared from the pines or hearts of the sereque or yellow maguey, which are roasted in ground
ovens to then mash them and let them ferment. The
fermented juice is distilled and then sotol is obtained.
It is drunk straight in any of its three variants (white,
rested or aged).

CUISINE OF TWO WORLDS / GASTRONOMIC ROUTE
ACTIVITIES OF THE ROUTE
Here starts the fascinating trip around Chihuahua, a
State with spectacular corners and natural spaces,
beautiful cities and charming towns, as well as an
eccentric selection of the most traditional recipes.
We will begin in the capital where we will enjoy the
famous cuts of the best meat from the State, at one
of the many local restaurants. We will also know its
Cathedral, its aqueduct, the mural paintings of the
Government Palace, The House of Handcrafts and its
museums of the Mexican revolution War and Pancho
Villa’s.
In the municipalities of Creel and Divisadero, we can
prepare handcrafted pizza and a delicious traditional
discada inside the gastronomic workshop that the
Best Western Lodge at Creel Hotel offers. This is the
region of the millennial Rarámuri culture, wrongly called Tarahumara, When arriving to this zone, we will be
able to share their lifestyle and understand their respect and love for nature, tasting their unique gastronomy, listening to their music, watching their typical
dances, and appreciating this unmatchable indigenous culture.
Our next destination is Cuauhtémoc, the cradle of
the greatest apple production. We will be received in
La Norteñita to learn about the production, care and
merchandising of this fruit, as well as tasting their products, without forgetting that November is the date of
an Apple Symposium.
We will continue our gastronomic trip in Hidalgo del
Parral, where we will delight with three characteristic
culinary products of this forest region: Doña Cuca enchiladas, the famous bread called Rayadas, which we
will be able to prepare ourselves, and the recognized
regional sweets.
The Mennonite community, creator of the cheese
that carries its name, is settled in this municipality. We will be around its inhabitants to learn better
about their history and the products they create. We
will participate in the processing of this famous dairy
product, and complete our visit with a stop at the
Mennonite Museum. During August, we can attend
the Mennonite Expo, or wait until May, and participate
in the Festival of the Three Cultures.
Finally, we cannot forget that Chihuahua is known
for its exquisite meat cuts and high quality stockbreeding, so we will visit a municipal slaughterhouse
where we an learn about the details surrounding the
production of this highly appreciated ingredient used
in the northern cuisine.

Talking about Sinaloa is talking about love and respect for traditions, it is falling in love with its beaches,
feeling at home through the warm hospitality of its
inhabitants, it means visiting their vast fields that produce and supply the entire nation, justifying their nickname: “the barn of Mexico”.
This is Sinaloa, an abundant territory, rich in products
from the sea and the earth, like vegetables, fruits,
meat, fish, and more. It means love for the products
obtained, it means union between the producer and
the entrepreneur, a state where you will come with
full pockets, a destination that you just cannot miss.
Sinaloa is tradition, culture, history, it is the place where the immensity of the sea merges with the high
mountains and vast fields that coexist with technology and industry, whose joined forces have developed
one of the most powerful economies in the Country.
