In the good old days, ‘Tex-Mex’ is a term that was used to refer to half-Texan and half-Mexican cuisine. The term first saw print in 1945 to mean Mexican peasant food prepared with cowboy fare by cooks, evoking images of cantinas, cattle drives and ranch hands or vaqueros. These were staple at dinner tables across South Texas which was heavily influenced by the food of neighboring northern Mexico. Tex-Mex actually began with a taste for cabrito (kid goat), barbacoa (barbecued cow heads), carne seca (dried beef), and other products of cattle culture which were common for cowboys.
Tex-Mex dishes went “gourmet” in the 1970s when Mexican culinary expert Diana Kennedy recommended “Americanized Mexican food” as a trendy fare and a “must-eat” cuisine for a younger generation. When the word adopted an exciting ring to it, a number of restaurants offering Tex-Mex dishes became a trend that spread across Europe, Asia, South America and even in the Middle East, particularly in places which have substantial Hispanic population.
These days, it generally means mouth-watering platters of enchiladas, tacos and tortillas. Just hearing these words can send anyone on a Tex-Mex rush.
