actually, you just reinforced texherps description of the matter at hand.
chef boiardi, or better known as boyardee, was an actual italian american chef. he was so successful at it that people often asked to take home his sauce and other foods, way before the days of doggie bags. he eventually sold out to factories that created crap. but i digress.
the point texherp made was that there is a true, regional tex-mex, but don't try to compare it to fast food.
that would be like comparing frozen factory made pizza to a real, fresh, handmade one.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose. The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder where the fair wind blows.
