In this session, you will take a deep dive into one of Mexico’s biggest northern states, one which boasts its unique cuisine and dearly beloved dishes: Chihuahua! From a Sopa de Ajo, to a true Mexican burrito de Chile Colorado, to the very famous Discada, and a sweet taste of their signature crisp apple buñuelos.
