Question: When Did Mexico Gain Independence from Spain?
Answer: Though Mexico declared independence from Spain on September 16, 1810, it wasn't recognized (and so 'gained' in the true sense of the word) until September 27, 1821.

The cultures of Spain and Mexico have diverged greatly in the 200 years since their separation. One of the common myths visitors have to Spain is about the cuisine. Many imagine that Spanish food will be spicy like its Mexican counterpart. Unfortunately for chili addicts, this is not the case.
