Mexican food isn't that popular in Latina America, either. For most of us, Mexican food is tacos and enchiladas and we don't really see them as anything special.
Here in Peru, some sandwich places offer "tacos" and "enchiladas" which, while good, offend Mexico as a nation. So much so that when Peruvians go to Mexico and eat taco there, they don't like them, they aren't what we're used to. People are somehow more familiar with tex-mex stuff.By the way, Taco Bell is on its third try at Peru, having failed miserably twice before.
