Mexican citizens must apply for a visa at either the US embassy in Mexico city or at a Consulate's office.
The H1B tourist visa would allow a person to visit the United states for a limited period of time, but this is anon-immigrant visa requiring her to show definite proof at Customs and border control that she intends to return back to Mexico before expiry of the non-immigrant visa.
The other option if you decide to get married is to file a 1-129f application which allows a Mexican citizen enter the US giving you 90 days to get married also known as a k1 fiance visa.
Once married you can then file a change of application status that would allow her get a green card and permanent residence.
Other options include student and work visa but you would need a school or employer sponsor for these.
Please follow up on your question if I missed something.
