Oregano is generally classified in two categories: Mediterranean and Mexican oregano . Despite the shared name and similar flavors, these are two completely different species. Greek oregano tends to be the most savory and earthy, while Italian is milder and Turkish is more pungent.
Mexican oregano shares the basic pungent flavor of Mediterranean oregano, but it also has notes of citrus and mild licorice with subtle hints of lime that really enhance the flavor of chiles and paprikas. It is frequently called for in chili powders, chili con carne, and various spicy/hot dishes, especially the traditional Mexican and Central American moles and rojos. Mexican Oregano is also outstanding in flavoring beans, burritos, enchiladas, fish, pork, salsas, soups, stews, tacos, tomato based sauces and as an ingredient in seasoning blends. It also partners well with are cumin, chili powder, dried Mexican chiles, garlic and pepper.
