I love a good chile relleno. I agreed with you on most tamales, I did have some in austin that were homemade by a coworker's mom or grandmother, those were incredible.

Guacamole. But that's not really a dish.

OK, I'll go with an authentic bean-filled quesadilla.

By far the best tamales I've ever had were made by a lady who owned a meat processing house. She started with 2 split beef heads & 1 pig's!

Tex Mex fan here! Living in Texas I can hardly walk out my front door without running into a Mexican food restaurant. I love me some chile relleno - Just had one Sunday.

Around here, good homemade tamales are easy to find. Just get a "source" and keep ordering them. Usually it's someone's grandmother who makes them for extra income for the family and the usual price for a bag is $10 for a bag of 12. My favorites are the pork.

You've got me thinking - I need to order some!

We can also buy good tamales by the bag at most local grocery stores.

OP, I am so glad you had a good experience at that restaurant - the menu looks delicious! Like you, before I moved to Texas 25 years ago, my only experience with "Mexican" food was Taco Bell! When I moved here, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven the first time I went to a Mexican food restaurant!

Enchiladas are my favorite Mexican dish. I got hooked on them when I lived in California and one of my aunts made them for dinner. More recently I tried mole sauce on Enchiladas for the first time and that was even in better!
