Oh, then you get homestyle. It really just depends what part of Mexico they're from. Tex-Mex is found right along the border and into Texas. On my business trips to Mexico City, however, I found that I could not find anything faintly resembling Tex-Mex. It never made it that far into the interior of Mexico. Of course, New Mexico and Colorado Mexican food is totally different than Tex-Mex as well.

You are kidding, right? We left Texas last year on May 16th and returned on Sept 16th. We got to New Mexico and had "Mexican" (loose terminology there), then Arizona, then California, then Oregon, and previously we have had "Mexican" (loose term in those states). Not once did I find the flavor and consistency of good meat in those places. We now avoid Mexican Restaurants in those states.

Why? Because the taco meat tastes like pot roast. That is what they use. Beef that is typically cooked as a pot roast. All I need in those states is boiled potatoes, carrots, and change the tortilla out for bread and you would have a New England boiled dinner. Hamburger meat, seasoned correctly, has a better flavor than the pot roast meat they use. A Chile Releno with poblano peppers tastes like pot roast in those states. Sheesh!

Mexican food in those states is a travesty.

Happy trails.

p.s., when in those states, at a Mexican restaurant eat chicken!

Maybe that's why I never really developed a taste for Mexican food in any shape or form. Don't get me wrong as I do eat it, I just don't like it. It's like the California Yuppy everything passed as authentic ethnic food. Once you've had real Pizza, California Yuppy never seems to make the grade again. I guess food is as subjective as art, some like the real thing and others like umm err California Yuppie.
