Tex-Mex cuisine is hard to define, but in essence, it's Mexican dishes infused with the regional flavors of the southwest. Dishes like tacos and nachos are heavily favored in Tex-Mex cooking, being just as (if not more) widely eaten here in America than in their place of origin. Help yourself to a heaping spoonful of Texan-style bean salad, or sink your fork into cheesy, chili-covered enchiladas! The smoky, spicy flavors of the southwest are waiting.
