What is Fresh Mex?

What is Fresh Mex?

Tex-Mex is a Texas version of Mexican food characterized by a blend of Mexican and Southern American features. Tex Mex took off as more people settled in Texas, and the popularity of Mexican food became popular due to its proximity. Soon, Mexican restaurant owners in Texas started incorporating more elements into their dishes. The result was an entirely new style of cuisine. The significant difference between Mexican and Tex-Mex food is the use of a few key ingredients found in the US. Most of which are not commonly used in Mexico. Those include beef, cheddar cheese, wheat flour, black beans, canned vegetables, chili powder, and cumin. On the other hand, Chevys is famous for ‘Fresh Mex’. Learn all about our food and how we put Fresh Mex on the map.
