Why We Love Our Tex-Mex

Tex-Mex food is known for being hot and spicy. Our recipes are certainly spicy, but not too hot for Texans . We like the heat, but don't want to burn your pallet. You simply cannot find food like this in a restaurant and these recipes are brought to life with the love and warmth found in your kitchen. These two key ingredients will not be found anywhere else.

My family is originally from a small town in Southern California about a half hour away from the Mexican border and moved to North Texas in 80's. This is where I spent my summers learning how to cook these fabulous dishes with my many central Texas friends. So don't worry, I'm not going to dump a pile of salsa on a flour tortilla, add cheese and call it Tex-Mex food. If you want this, go to Taco Bell. However, these party appetizers will show you how to outdo even the most famous high end Mexican food restaurants. Get ready for som good home cooking!
