Hmmm.  I disagree with this sentiment.  As told to me by our neighbor who left Chihuahua, every small pueblo in Mexico tends to derive its own niche food influenced by what was available.  And these foods are means of currency.  Here in New Mexico, which of course was Mexico until 1848, the green chile flourished and was incorporated into the food.  Mexican food is extremely diverse.  So I don't put any stock into someone trying to tell me what "Real Mexican food" is.

I hear ya, Mexican food is very diverse by region. I guess what my gripe is that the majority of Americans don't know that.   I assume italians tire of seeing all Italian food perceived as bubbling with cheese and red sauce.  Nothing wrong with the food but Italian food varies big time depending if it's north/south Italy.

I prefer authentic ingredients first.  After that, let your imagination go wild on execution.
