Our Tex-Mex cuisine faithful to the tradition
However, it is mainly a meat cuisine, it should not be forgotten that we are in an area where livestock farms are flourishing, so beef is omnipresent in Tex-Mex recipes.
A typical recipe is, for example, dried beef, another the grilled head of beef, or the famous chili con carne, or stew with beans.
In addition to beef, chicken meat is also often found, mostly marinated and fried, but also used as a filling for enchiladas and tortillas.
And then the cheese, in particular the American one, similar to cheddar, with a yellow paste and slightly seasoned, which is used mostly as a cover for dishes and then melted during cooking.
There are also many Tex-Mex sauces, more or less spicy, among the most popular we certainly have Tabasco and guacamole. Lime juice is often used as a condiment. Exotic fruits such as avocado, pineapple and papaya are used in both sweet and savory recipes, often used to prepare sauces or salads to accompany meat.
