Excellent article on the history, origins, and controversies of one of our favorite foods.

If you are ever in Houston, do not miss the opportunity to go to the original Mama Ninfa's on Navigation.

Lonestar: Sincere thanks for the history lesson. Cleared up a lot of misconception on my behalf starting with the Tex-Mex railway in 1800's, with the language dialect of mixed English and Mexican on up to what we know as Tex-Mex cooking

Thanks, Lone Star. Having both Diana Kennedy's book and a book with Ninfa's recipes in it, i'm going to enjoy looking up the contrasts now between the two. Good article!
