The Tex-Mex Table: 60 Knockout Recipes from the Lone Star State

We rated this book:


There is something really special about Tex-Mex cuisine. When Mandi Hickman, now a food blogger, found herself in Texas after living in New Jersey, she embraced the Tex-Mex cuisine and made it her own. This book, with sixty recipes, is something of an homage to that cuisine.

With eight sections—Tacos & Tortilla Handhelds, Tex-Mex Heats & Mains, BBQ & Other Lone Star Classics, Oven Meals with Tex-Mex Flair, Crowd-Pleasing Appetizers, Best Salsas & Fixings 101, Seriously Good Sides, and Sugar & Booze: a Southern Sendoff—Hickman has something for everyone. Each recipe has an introductory paragraph, a mouthwatering close-up photo, the number of servings, a good ingredients list, and excellent instructions. Unfortunately, there is not any nutritional information or calorie counts, but everything else is great.

Do not miss the Chicken, Spinach, and Artichoke Enchiladas. They are delicious! And for small bites, the Mini Jalapeño Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli recipe is perfect. If you need a sweet-stopper for a crowd, nothing will be better than the Cowboy Cookie Skillet. That will satisfy the whole family. This is a fun journey through Tex-Mex cooking, and a beautiful one as well.
