Possibly so, but either way, you had people of Mexican heritage (if not Mexican expatriates) who were operating restaurants in which they were cooking dishes from their heritage. Since it sounds like there aren't many people in Spain of Mexican descent, it seems like that source of Mexican cuisine knowledge is missing.
