Firstly, there’s no need to point out that none of these things are Mexican food, and are Tex-Mex instead.
So, I’m in the north. Really north. There’s an excellent chance that the folks around here don’t know their Tex from their Mex or a chimmi-changa (SP??)from a burrito.
However, my question is this:
At various different places I’ve been served a tortilla with beans, cheese, grilled veg (peppers and onions, usually) and sometimes rice. It is typically served with sour cream, salsa and maybe guacamole.
When I ordered this item has been call a burrito, a chimmi-changa, a soft taco, maybe an enchilada (although I think that usually has more rice). A fajita is similar to the above but usually a do it yourself type thing.
What the heck am I eating? Are all of these things the same only with a different style of tortilla?
Or are northern restaurants just totally clueless (I’m not ruling this out at all).
