BARRANCAS DEL COBRE
Gastronomy in Barranca del Cobre does not differ much from the recipes that are usually prepared in Chihuahua, the state capital; although, here fruits and vegetables are more frequently used, being the main ingredients meat, spicy chilli and the tortillas of maize.
Travellers will enjoy succulent dishes proper of the sierra of Chihuahua in the numerous inns existing in the small towns of Barranca del Cobre, such as the stew of meat (well established regionally), a sort of soup or broth prepared with chunks of rib, hoof, tail and marrow; it is accompanied with carrots, pumpkins, cabbages, maize, potatoes and aromatic herbs.
And if you wish something rather weighty, there is nothing like a good cut of meat seasoned in the northern style and accompanied by hot tortillas; this preparation is pretty popular in the zone.
Another tasty option is the beefsteak Rararumi, a cut of meat seasoned in an especial way that is much appreciated amongst visitors. Besides, you should not forget the quesadillas, the chilli of cheese and the green chilli on the grill, which are served with tortillas made of maize or flour.
Breakfast is a stellar moment in Barranca del Cobre; varied juices made of tropical fruits are served, along with scrambled eggs with dry beef, frijoles with nachos or chilaquies, as the pieces of usually triangular fried tortillas accompanied with spicy sauce are known.
And if you rather have something stronger than a fruit juice when the time for a drink arrives, you have beers and the classical tequila, the flag drink that cannot be missed in all of Mexico.
