What Aztecs Were Eating Before European Contact


The Aztecs thrived in the area corresponding to Mexico between the 14th and 15th centuries until they were overthrown by Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés in 1521. This complex Mesoamerican culture revolved around growing and consuming food, particularly maize (what is now known as corn) – but what else did the Aztecs eat? What did they grow? What did they eat for dessert? How did they cook their food?
