"In the United States, some people consider "Hispanic" to be too general as a label, while others consider it offensive, often preferring to use the term "Latino", which is viewed as a self-chosen label. The preference of "Latino" over "Hispanic" is partly because it more clearly indicates that those it is referring to are the people from Latin America (including Brazil) and not Spain.
Tex-Mex is a term used to describe Americanized Mexican food, particularly from the south or southwest of the United States.
"Tex-Mex" first entered the language as a nickname for the Texas-Mexican Railway, which was chartered in 1875.  In the train schedules published in newspapers of the 1800s, the names of railroads were abbreviated. The Missouri Pacific was called the Mo. Pac., and the Texas-Mexican was abbreviated Tex. Mex.
