TexMex vs. CalMex Mon, 10/27/03 1:05 PM (permalink)
In my mind, there is a big difference in TexMex and CalMex. TexMex has yellow cheese, pinto beans(refried or ala charra), fried corn tortillas, like chips, tacos, chalupas(or as some call them tostadas), and nachos. CalMex has white cheese, white beans, and flour tortillas like burritos and quesadillas. Black beans and white rice are for Caribbean people, like Cubans. CalMex is not as seasoned as TexMex, but both has Spanish Rice, but In Texas we have sopa fideo. In Texas, we expect free chips and hot sauce with our dinner. We have red enchiladas cheese or beef and we have tamales. Dinner end with sopapillas, jamoncillio, or leche quemada pralines. Iced tea is the requisite beverage with any Texas meal. San Diego fish tacos and the San Francisco mission style burritos has not yet made it big here. Besides the New Mexico green chile stacked enchiladas and the Tucson Chimmichongas, what other variations of "Mexican" are there?
