The Other Side Of Mexican Cooking

High-quality bell peppers, summer squash and cucumbers may not have arrived in the farmer’s markets yet, but they’re crisp, fresh and abundant at the supermarket-and most likely imported from Mexico.

Many people don’t realize that Mexico exports far more than just chiles, avocados, tomatoes, limes and other produce you think of as being in Mexican food. Bell peppers in several colors, summer squash in many varieties, and different varieties of cucumbers are just as commonly available from our warm and sunny neighbor to the south.

Mexico has exported high-quality produce to the U.S. for more than 100 years. All Mexican produce undergoes strict quality and safety assurances before it crosses the U.S. border, so you can know it’s safe and fresh. Plus, it’s healthy: Red, yellow and orange bell peppers are high in beta-carotene and vitamin C.
