One thing to consider is that there are the various cuisines of Mexico, and then there are Tex-Mex, Cal-Mex, New Mexican, etc... all of which are legitimate Mexican cuisines in their own right. And there's a LOT of overlap and syncretism between them- is a dish less Mexican, just because Mexican immigrants made it on this side of the Rio Grande using local stuff?

And the thing is, they're all described as "Mexican" in the US. So judging by whether they serve chips or not doesn't really indicate authenticity at all.
