The Traditional Mexican American Folklore also contains nearly 3500 recipes for folk foods, including those from BSA’s annual culinary contests (2012– 2020). Border Studies Archive hosted members of the community and local chefs in a food competition to celebrate regional Mexican cuisine, including mole, capirotada, tamale, and pozole, among others.
The collection contains restricted material and is open for research on a limited basis. Online research requests are the easiest way for BSA patrons and scholars to initiate their research inquiries. Be sure to include specific details about your research interest.
