This week on the Eater Upsell, we delve into all the issues raised by writer Meghan McCarron’s March feature on Tex Mex cuisine. She appears on the show along with taco journalist Mando Rayo to discuss the origins of Tex Mex, why the cuisine doesn’t get the same respect as barbecue, the dual negative effects of Taco Bell and Mexican scholar Diana Kennedy on the cuisine, and what Tex Mex lovers can do to support mom and pops across Texas.
