    Authentic Mexican foods

    I am looking for recipes for authentic Mexican foods, not Tex-Mex like we find here in the Mexican restaurants but the real deal. I have some Mexican friends, they own our Mexican restaurant, that have invited me to some of their parties, the food is wonderful and it is authentic. I was wondering if anyone has any idea where I might find some of these recipes. I have had goat, they shred it like we do for Pork BBQ but no BBQ sauce, something entirely different, they had Beef fixed this way at the last part I went to. Then they have had a spaghetti but it had a white sauce but not alfredo, also spicey and beans that remind me of our baked beans only no sweetness to them and they had cheese in them and spices. I'd love to find some good recipes like theirs. They don't speak enough English for me to get their's. Just like we can't tell them how to do something in English for them to comprehend. They love mashed potatoes but we had to bring them to the house to show them how to make them. When they have a party they always ask my sister or myself to make them some Mexican cornbread, they don't make it.

    Easiest way to find them is to look for posted recipes that come from Rick Bayless or Diana Kennedy - they both focus on authentic, not Tex-Mex, recipes. I'm sure I've saved some, will try to check.

    Good morning Jacqueline! Sounds like you have been having some very good eating. Tex-Mex food and food that you get in the interior is very different. I did a Google search and came up with

    This isn't what I was looking for and I know it. I'm probably not much help as I am so influenced by Tex-Mex and New Mexican food. If you can find the names of some of the things are looking for it would be very helpful.

    I am so sorry I have not been back to check on this since anyone posted. I checked the first few days, no posts so I figured just another dead forum. Today I was going through my bookmarks and came upon this one. I will check everything you all have posted and suggested.

    Thanks for your time.
