Yes, Mexican food can cause heartburn. However, not all Mexican food can have such effect. This is because the ingredients itself are one of the main causes of heartburn.

The following are some of the foods that can cause heartburn (ingredients commonly found in Mexican dishes): 1) Tomatoes – although tomatoes contain lycopene, it is also highly acidic and most likely to cause heartburn, 2) Garlic and onion – because some people don’t really do well with either onion or garlic, 3) Spicy foods – some Mexican foods are spicy because they are loaded with pepper which can trigger heartburn, and 4) Cheese and avocadoes – these two can also trigger heartburn because fat slows down the emptying of our stomach and can therefore put pressure on the esophageal sphincter.
