An entertaining, tasty trip through the history and culture of Mexican food in this country. When salsa overtook ketchup as this country's favorite condiment in the 1990s, America's century-long love affair with Mexican food reached yet another milestone. In seemingly every decade since the 1880s, America has tried new food trends from south of the border. As a result, Mexican food dominates American palates to the tune of billions of dollars in sales per year. It's a little-known history, one that's crept up on this country like your Mexican neighbors-and left us better for it."
