Tlaxcala state is also famous as a culinary destination with a wide range of regional dishes such as tamales or barbacoa (lamb wrapped in maguey leaves cooked in an oven hole).

The mixture of pre-Hispanic food with ingredients and meat brought from Europe generated a mixture of flavors and colors, resulting in one of the richest and most varied cuisines in Mexico.
