Tex-Mex is bastardized? I don't think so

Today's lecture notes dealing with Tex-Mex cuisine has this astounding sentence in the description of our cusine:
"Basically, Tex-Mex food consists of bastardized Mexican foods. Burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas are a few."

I believe we'll be discussing this attitude tomorrow morning and it will be interesting to see how the discussion turns. Food molds us although we are unaware of the process. The more intelligently we can approach what we eat, the greater our ability to all sit at the same table enjoying our pluralism.
