I Miss Tex-Mex
Tex-Mex is a much-maligned cuisine. All I hear are sneers. “It’s unhealthy.” “It’s inauthentic.” “It’s got too much cheese.”
Well, get over yourselves, Californians.
Seriously, “unhealthy”? Hate you taken a look at those deep-fried tacos you can’t stop wolfing down at Tito’s Tacos? Because those things aren’t just loaded with fat. They’re a disgusting mess.
“Inauthentic.” Huh? It’s regionally authentic. You’re just used to food from a different region. And apparently you don’t realize that authentic food is based on local ingredients–which is funny, considering how obsessed you are with living La Vida Locavore. Hopefully local ingredients explain your own obsession with red onions. (Why are they in everything? Please tell me, and then explain why you’d want them to be.)
“Too much cheese.” Pretty big talk for the state that pays good money to brag about its happy cows.
So cry me a river, and pass the fajitas. Which, by the way, are from Texas.
