Meet the Chef
Amanda Escamilla is the founder of Tex Mex Eats. Her passion, talent & infectious enthusiasm is reflected in every dish she makes. Amanda grew up on the Gulf Coast of South Texas fueled on traditional, authentic Mexican food, grilled meats, fresh seafood and her greatest influence - her Mother's cooking. Amanda takes pride in her "Texachusetts" flavors that combine Mexican dishes with local New England ingredients.
Since moving to Boston over 20 years ago, Amanda has worked in a variety of restaurants where she has developed a love for sourcing local ingredients whenever possible, whether it be a whole pig from Athol, MA or tomatoes from the nearest Farmers' Markets. Amanda served on the catering team of Cambridge, MA's legendary East Coast Grill where she learned how to throw an event with professionalism, enthusiasm and the most delicious food you can imagine.
