Being born and raised here in Texas means that I basically cut my teeth on great Mexican food. It's so integrated into my life now that I can't imagine going any place where a fabulous enchilada, homemade tortilla or tamale wasn't available. Of course, it's impossible to think of amazing Mexican food without avocados. Texans like myself love avocados so much, we put them in and on everything and even eat them...for breakfast!
