It was expected that they would had been able to produce their own food and abundant and diverse historical records available refer, in one way or another, to the use of different foodstuffs, specially those brought from the Viceroyalty. However, what these documents fail to fully acknowledge, is the direct use and importante of those food items that were produced and/or obtained from the local environment In this paper we evaluate the role some of these products played in the foodways of the inhabitants of the colony, specifically meat, the most valued item of the spanish-creole culinary tradition. We are interested in the way the local government got involved in the explotation and distribution of local fauna and if its consumption was commonly accepted. To achive this we evaluate the context of production of the written record and analyze the archaeofauna from different samples of the site. This allows us to enlarge the information available about the foodways of the colony and, through comparing written and archaeological evidence, discuss the motives and criteria underlying the way the local government of the colony described its progress.
