The cuisine in the north of Mexico tends to be very different to that of the rest of the country. Its semi-desert soil forced the Spanish colonizers to import cattle, starting the tradition of the cattle ranches and the consumption of meat in the region.
The states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Sonora, and Nuevo León have the best beef. One of the highlights is the tender cut called "arrachera", which is very typical of the region.
Unlike other states in Mexico, tortillas here are normally made from flour rather than corn, and a regional favorite is "sobaqueras", which are huge flour tortillas.
