One of my favorite cuisines of all time is Tex-Mex, and I'm sad to report that Matt Martinez, Jr., the "King of Tex-Mex," died last Friday. Martinez, owner of several notable Texas Tex-Mex restaurants, was one of the first pioneers to embrace the term. Insulted by critics who denounced Americanized Mexican food, Martinez abandoned claim to anything Mexican, calling it Tex-Mex instead.
To honor the legacy Martinez has left behind, I thought I'd put together a quiz about Tex-Mex cuisine. How much do you know? There's only one way to find out!
