Did You Know?

In the US, Tex Mex recipes developed from the influence of a large Mexican population in the southwestern states.

These recipes evolved over time to appeal to American appetites and use more commonly found American ingredients. Tex Mex cooking was born, and we are all thankful.

Of course Spanish, Tex Mex and Mexican food are all somewhat different from each other, but we have combined them here because they are very similar in many ways.
