So you thought you were speaking Tex-Mex?
An American Spanish lexical pedigree, however, does not always guarantee Mexican origins. Take chili con carne , for example.
Sliced and wrapped in a tortilla, fare of this kind can be found across Mexico by other names for example, arrachera al carbon ; the English-speaking world knows it as the fajita. Although the above items have quite literal, descriptive names, such is not always the case with Tex-Mex terms. As retold in the church cookbook For Goodness Sake! Another likely candidate for such namesaking is the margarita , a tequila cocktail beloved in Tex-Mex cuisine. Nobody knows for sure who invented it or whom it is called after.
A quick glance at the aforementioned terms will rightly suggest that much of Tex-Mex vocabulary derives from Spanish and borrows into English as-is, untranslated.
