Corn is the vegetable that is also known as Maize. It is a large grain plant that was domesticated by indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica in prehistoric times. The leafy stalk of the corn plant produces ears which contain the grain, which are seeds called corn kernels. Corn or maize kernels are often used in cooking as a starch. The six major types of corn are flint, dent, pod, popcorn, flour, and sweet. Corn is central to Mexican food recipes. Almost every dish in Mexican cuisine uses corn in their recipes. Corn is the main ingredient in tamale recipes, tortilla recipes, pozole recipes, atole recipes and all the dishes based on them, like quesadillas, tacos, chilaquiles, enchiladas, tostadas and many more. In Mexico even the fungus of maize, known as huitlacoche is considered a delicacy.

Butter is food that is made of solid dairy product by churning fresh or fermented milk or cream, to separate the butterfat from the buttermilk. Butter is used as a spread on plain or toasted bread products and as a condiment on cooked vegetables, as well as in cooking, such as baking, sauce recipes, and pan frying. Butter is made of milk proteins, butterfat, and water. Most often butter is made from cows' milk; butter can also be made from the milk of other mammals, including sheep, goats, buffalo, and yaks. Salt such as dairy salt, flavorings and preservatives are sometimes added to butter. Rendering butter produces clarified butter or ghee, which is almost entirely butterfat. The earliest butter recipe would have been from goat's milk or sheep milk; cattle are not thought to have been domesticated for another thousand years. An ancient method of making butter that is still used today in parts of Africa and the Near East involves a goat skin that is half filled with milk and inflated with air before being sealed. The skin is then hung with some ropes on a tripod of sticks and rocked until the movement leads to the formation of butter. In the Mediterranean climate, unclarified butter spoils quite quickly unlike cheese, so it is not a practical method of preserving the nutrients of milk used in the recipe. The ancient Greeks and Romans seemed to have considered butter a better food fit more for their northern barbarians.
