Why Mexican food is popular in the US but not Spanish food, yet both countries speak Spanish?

I’m always curious about this that is, what makes one country’s cuisine more popular than the others.
Also why Italian cuisine is more popular than spanish one??
Immigration may counts, however, French cuisine is also popular not only in the US but in Japan and several countries. Spanish did conquer the world but not people’s mouth. (Pourquoi?)
That is, there weren’t many French immigrants in the US as compared to Mexican and Italian immigrants. But French cuisine is popular.
