Well, Argentina is definitely south of the border-bring on the roasted side of beef with chimichurri! Are you gonna cook it over white smoke or black smoke?

An Argentine Churrascaria style cook might be really cool, and different.

This may be my chance to give that Peruvian Cuy recipe I found last year when we some of us were discussing exotic foods.

It says south of the border, then lists Tex-Mex, and specifically state there are no special rules. This means we're talking the Oklahoma border at the southernmost.

I'm thinking to win this, you'll need to cook the American version of Mexican food, just as you have to cook the American version of most international foods to win a TD, these days. I'd love to do hours of research to learn how to cook a real Mexican dish, just to lose to a plate of food that nobody in Mexico eats. Not.

I hope to see some stellar, authentic Mexican or Central American entries. I'll vote for it -- which means I'll fark up your zero.

So, basically you're saying we need to make nachos with cheese that came from a box? I can't see something like that ever winning.

Allright, had to do a little cleanup since it was going "Wackadoodle" in the wrong place. I tried to only move those that either didn't discuss what is actually in the category, or responses that also didn't get on track.

As for what this category covers, I think this part of the description from Gnaws on Pigs (in the OP) covers it pretty clearly...

Quote:
Mexican/Latin/Tex-mex/Americanized Mexican food
So you can make...

1. Real Mexican food
2. Americanized Mexican
3. Tex-Mex (pretty similar to Americanized although different)
4. Latin food

If anyone has any questions or comments about these, feel free to ask!

Can't wait to see where this goes...

Oh, since I imagine the only sticky point is "Latin" food, you might check this out...
