TexMex recipes Tex Mex Cuisine combines the simple and time tested culinary traditions of generations of Mexican cooks with ingredients and innovations that were not as readily available to the women cooking in the traditional Mexican kitchen.

Some ingredients are common to traditional Mexican cuisine, but other ingredients that are not usually used in Mexico are often included. Tex Mex cuisine is characterized by its heavy use of shredded cheese, meats such as beef, pork, chicken and at times, fish and beans and spices, including varied uses of Mexican-style tortillas. The use of cumin and cilantro are common in Tex Mex, but used sparingly in central Mexican recipes.

In the southwestern American states like Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, California and Utah there is what is termed Mexican Foods that were brought there by immigrants from Mexico. But, these are generally southwestern adaptations of basic Mexican cuisine. Real Tex Mex is sometimes available in these other states, but the Tex Mex cuisine came from the state of Texas.

Now a traveller can dine at a Tex Mex restaurant almost anywhere in the world - from towns on the south coast of Turkey to the city of Paris, Tex Mex restaurants have been opening. Of course, these restaurants may say Tex Mex, but anyone familiar with Tex Mex food could tell you that what is served in most is hardly recognizable.
