reference the spanish wiki[edit]

use the spanish wikipedia as a reference. http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comida_mexicana. this article has lots of history. the spanish one has a portion of this history.

poor writing, no elucidation.[edit]

"While the Spanish initially tried to impose their own diet on the country, this was not possible and eventually the foods and cooking techniques began to be mixed, especially in colonial era convents. "

If you are going to suggest there is a reason for something in an encyclopedia entry, it makes sense to actually explain it. Saying "this was not possible" when you are referring to two nations is something you'd read in a third grade writing assignment.

In other words, if you are going to say something wasn't possible it makes sense to expand on WHY, especially considering this is an encyclopedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.142.147.112 (talk) 14:10, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Chile peppers[edit]

The entire section on chile peppers needs to be edited for spelling. "Chili" is an American stew of beans and meat that can include tomatoes and peppers. "Chile" is the proper spelling when referring to spicy peppers as an ingredient. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.84.166.185 (talk) 07:48, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

removal of the blended margarita picture[edit]

the frozen margarita was invented in dallas, texas and is entirely tex-mex. the authentic margarita contains only tequila, lime juice, and cointreau. the picture included with this article is clearly a frozen margarita, thus should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Getpaul (talkcontribs) 09:09, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
