Tex Mex Slop I Have Known and Loved

Plano Rose | Aug 29, 2002 04:50 PM

Tonight we're having one of my favorite meals. Tamales from Escondidas, a dive close to Parkland Hospital, some of their authentically Tex Mex chilli gravy, pinto beans cooked with ham (which is just plain old Tex, not Tex Mex), flour tortillas made by Bimbo Bakeries, and homemade pico de gallo. I guess the pico de gallo might qualify as Mex. I've eaten gallons of it on the Yukatan, but not on the Pacific coast, the interior, or Oaxaca. Hey, what's wrong with Tex Mex, or just plain old Tex for that matter?
