Tis' true. Don't get me wrong, tex-mex has its place and is super tasty, but authentic Mexican food is really different, apples and oranges, really. I would dare to say that many Americans would find many authentic Mexican dishes rather unappealing, simply because of the meat ingridients. Take the ubiquitous taco for example; tacos de lengua (cow tongue), tacos de cesos (cow brain), tacos de tripas (beef tripe), and tacos de cabeza (cows head) just to name a few. Of course, for the picky eaters there is always carne asada.Your idea of Mexican food (since you're from Mexico) is probably different than American's idea of Mexican food. Mexican food in the US is predominantly Tex-Mex or Cal-Mex. It's my understanding that you'd be hard pressed to find a Chimichunga in the heart of Mexico (unless you were at a resort town). I could be wrong though.
My mom's authentic Mexican cooking p'wns all. She makes the best sopes and tamales (salsa verde type) ever.No Mexican I know of would eat a crunchy taco. I do not think they exist there.
As for Mexican food, the best is from...my Mexican wife! :lol:
X2 But only if done properly, on a vertical spit, with onions, and a pineapple on top.Tacos al pastor remains my favourite Mexican dish/snack
