I might be sparking a debate here but… I have an addiction to Mexican Food, I blame it on living in Houston my whole life. Texas has the best Mexican Food in the world. Let me back up by saying our food here in Houston is technically Tex-Mex… but I think it is better than authentic Mexican. Tex-Mex is more flavorful to me… more cumin, cilantro, cheese and meat. I grew up eating Tex-Mex so authentic Mexican is a little bland in my humble opinion. Speaking of my opinion, I have tried “Mexican Food” in other parts of the country and it shouldn’t even be allowed to claim the name. Ask anyone who has left Texas what they miss and Mexican Food is on the list.
Tostadas are a favorite at our house and I think I have found the perfect order of ingredients :) I also like to use ground turkey instead of beef.
-Refried Black Bean (you need some glue)
-Ground Turkey (add a taco seasoning packet)
-Queso Fresco or Greek Yogurt (or both)
-1 small white onion
-1 bunch of cilantro
-juice of 2 limes
-1/2 tsp salt
Back to the controversy of Mexican Food. What do you like better? Have you had TexMex in Houston… why not? Do you live in an area where you “think” you are eating good Mexican Food :) And while I’m asking a bunch of questions… why do some restaurants call them Tostadas and some call them Chalupas? Same with Taquitos and Flautas?? Please discuss.
