Texas Blog: Tex-Mex
Tex-Mex is usually not very healthy, but it tastes fantastic! If you eat at a Tex-Mex restaurant you will be served an endless stream of tortilla chips before your meal for free. These chips can be eaten plain, or you can order a bowl of queso (a melted cheese sauce), guacamole, or salsa to go with them. On the menu will be a variety of dishes, most of them loaded with meat and cheese. I strongly recommend beef fajitas. You will be served a sizzling hot pan full of strips of beef and peppers, with a container of warm flour tortillas on the side. You can put the beef into the tortillas yourself, adding toppings as you please. Fajitas are so deliscious, and one of the foods that I miss the most from back home.
I hope that if you`re ever in Texas, you`ll give Tex-Mex food a try. It`s delicious, and I think it`s a good representation of how Texas has been influenced by Mexican culture.
So, what are some foods that are unique to your prefecture, hometown, or family?
Have you ever tried to blend Japanese style cooking with ingredients or a cooking style from another country?
