In Defense of Tex-Mex

velveeta-150.jpgHouston food writer Robb Walsh comes out in defense of Tex-Mex, calling out No Reservations host/writer Anthony Bourdain, former New York Times food critic Craig Claiborne, and cookbook author Diana Kennedy for perpetuating the myth that "Tex-Mex is Mexican food that's been bastardized by a bunch of dumb gringos." In the end, Walsh thinks it comes down to a snobbish aversion to Velveeta. [Texas Eats via Eater Austin]
