Exotic Food and Flowers

This exotic dish is not native of Mexico, it was brought from either Japan or South China. Hibiscus flowers also known as jamaica and arrived in Mexico in the colonial times and are now deeply integrated into Mexican cuisine.
In these light tacos, the tart and bright flowers are mixed with roasted potatoes (regular or the sweet kind), your choice of shredded chicken or beef (you can add pieces of shrimp instead if you like) and sautéed vegetables before being wrapped in a lettuce leaf “tortilla.”
