A few people have commented on this. There are many style variations. This is the style I grew up with in Tucson. I know it especially from the restaurant La Parrilla Suiza that has been on east Speedway for many decades. The Mexican food is considered to be that of Mexico-City as opposed to Texas, California, New Mexico, or "Southwest" styles. Last year, I was pleasantly surprised that the taste has remained largely the same, although they do include more southwestern dishes now.
I've also had very similar in New Mexico, but they were much spicier.
