I'd have to say Taco Bell is my favorite thing.
As much as I could talk about the mouth-watering burritos, tacos, and delicious salsa, I admit that I've always been intrigued with the extensive Aztec mythology behind Mexican culture. Chupacabras have always been darn freaky and fascinating at the same time, and don't get me started on the bird-snake god Quetzalcoatl. (Yes! I spelled that right) Plus the fact that those ziggurats of their's are simply amazing.
Growing up as a wrestling nut, I would definitely say the lucha libre style of wrestling. From Rey Mysterio to Psychosis to La Parka to Mil Mascaras, their style of wrestling has evolved into what now looks like watching the equivalent of a comic book battle between faces and heels in the squared circle. To prove this, here is the following equation:
Costumed Wrestlers + Lots of impressive technical and acrobatic wrestling - Fear = AWESOME!
My favorite part of Mexican culture is probably the food, it's so unique (well, it's fairly common in Latin America). And without that, there would be no Doritos Locos Tacos :P
My favorite aspect of Mexican culture is...Salvador from Borderlands 2 (Awesome Space Hispanic-ness is a part of Mexican culture, right?), because he has TWO guns! TWO!
The food and The women, Both spicy.
I love the Mexican food mostly a nice kick and its mostly made of familiar ingredients.
Tacos. It's got to be the tacos.
They have some cool holidays, like The Day of the Dead. Also... the food. I love nachos, burritos, tacos, and more. Hope I win, I'd definitely review it on my blog!
Haha, the food for sure! I grew up with a lot of traditional Mexicano and general Spanish foods made from scratch, so by far the food and the whole atmosphere of it.
The cultural aspect I love the most about mejicans is their origins history. The food is second place :)
Everyone else has said this but it's true - food is the best! I mean a real authentic mole is pretty hard to beat
Simple, Sugar Skulls!!! Why you ask? Because they make sweet tattoos..
Quetzacoatyl and soccer. Gotta love those Mexican announcers. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!
I'm Mexican, does that get me a copy of the game? Lol
Definitely luchadores. And tacos.
I love the Mexican culture but if I had to choose my favorite aspect it would have to be the food. I could live off of tamales and flan, though every thing about El Dia De Los Muertos is a very close second.
Tacos, that is all that is needed to be said. End of discussion.
Dia de Muertos, AKA Day of the Dead. It's always nice to see when a culture honors those who came before them.
