    We have an insatiable appetite for overstuffed tacos, cheesy enchiladas, and sizable sopes (not to mention margaritas). But, if a summer trip to Cabo isn't an option, don't fret. We've rounded up 10 of the best spots for Mexican eats right here in Chicago. Any excuse for guacamole, right?

    While Antique Taco wins our hearts with its market-inspired tacos (we dream of the garlic-shrimp option), Cemitas Puebla is our go-to for delicious signature sandwiches. The unique combination of avocado, meat, adobo chipotle peppers, and Oaxacan cheese, all nestled between two slices of sesame seed bread, is seriously crave-worthy. But, when something a little more refined is in order, Top Chef contestant Carlos Gaytan of Mexique and famed chef Rick Bayless have got you covered with dishes that are as pretty as they are tasty. We hope you're hungry — there are some amazing dishes ahead.
