Since the day I discovered Tex-Mex food (see infos), I have become addicted to it and now need my regular dose of tortilla-wrapped specialities, otherwise I would suffer too much!
Of course, it goes without mentioning that everything has to be homemade from A to Z. The industrial stuff which you find in stores is just not comparable. For example, a bought tortilla (see infos) will never be as authentic and scrummy as the ones you make with your little hands, because they have no soul as nobody put their heart into the task and the ingredients used will always be of dubious quality.
Real tortillas (plain flour or "masa harina" ones) are very smooth, yet bread-like and their taste is uniquely delicious. When it comes to their store-bought cousins, they are quite disgusting, I must say! Those tortillas are strangely foamy and rubber-like, shine in an an eery way and have no fragrance nor flavor (maybe just the one of bad hydrogenated oil). Eeessshhh!
In conclusion, make your own Tex-Mex food if you want your tastebuds to dance to the sound of Mexican beats and be as wild as a Texas cowboy!!!
If you want do do a real "Fiesta Latina or Americana", with lotsa fine and "dirty" (= extremely yummy and scrumptious in my language!) food (tortillas, burritos, guacomole, salsa and much more...), I recommend you to visit this page of my blog:
