What Makes Mexican Food Authentic?

Traditional Mexican cuisine evolved when the Spanish arrived in Mexico and introduced new species and new variations of their classic recipes using spices from the regions of Mexico.  Mexican food can be considered “authentic” if the spices and recipes from Mexico are used in the preparation.  Over the last few decades, those classic foods would go on to evolve into the Americanized versions of what was being made in Mexico.

Mexican dishes typically use corn, fish, goat, quail, tomatoes and a variety of spices and sauces.  Many recipes date back 50 years or more.  In turn, authentic Mexican dishes only means that the spices that have been used to prepare the dish are found in and considered to be authentic to Mexico. Many of these recipes date back 50 years or more.

Mexicali Border Café features many menu items from recipes that have been prepared for over 25 years.  The standard Mexican favorites like taco, enchiladas, fajitas and tamales are available and many of the daily specials offer traditional Mexican dishes with a new twist.
