Why Tex Mex?
TexMex recipes have been growing in popularity ever since their Texas origination in the late 1880s. Diana Kennedy, noted Mexican culinary expert, is credited with raising the awareness and popularity of this flavorful fare. More recently, TexMex cuisine has seen more acceptance in the mainstream American palate leading to an annual industry growth of 2.9% across the board for restaurants featuring this cuisine. Though there are many factors that experts believe are driving this change, one thing is certain – restaurant patrons clamor for spice!
