Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (February 26, 2019) – Beginning in March, Velas Vallarta will feature a new regional specialty each week as part of the resort's ongoing commitment to showcasing Mexican cuisine, culture and traditions. Running through October, the dishes will be inspired by all 31 states in Mexico. Highlights include Carne Tatemada (charred beef) Aguascalientes, Tlayudas (crispy tortilla, topped with refried beans, cheese, slaw, avocado and cilantro) from Oaxaca, Chile en Nogada (a poblano chile stuffed with dried fruits and nuts, covered in creamy walnut sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds and parsley) from Puebla, and Fish Ceviche from Baja California Sur. In case you can't make it to Puerto Vallarta, the resort shares an easy to make at home version of its Fish Ceviche.
