It was long overdue that I got a cookbook that is specifically the San Antonio flavors and specifically Tex-Mex recipes.
The cookbook is very extensive at almost 300 pages, some with more than one recipe per page so there is a good chance if you have a favorite Tex-Mex dish, it may be here.
Every recipe is quite simple, in spite of many of them tasting quite gourmet. I had no problem locating all ingredients easily in a regular grocery store--there was nothing bizarre or exotic.
Here are some examples of recipes we personally like from it--and all recipes are easily altered for special diets:
*Enchiladas Verde (a family recipe from a San Antonio tv anchor according the the cookbook, it has chicken, chiles, cheese, sour cream, etc)
*Cheese Enchiladas We make this in a hurry, with only 4 ingredients
*Green Chile Chili
*Corn Chip Chili it was like a gourmet "frito pie")
*Mexican Style Mini Pizza
*Black Bean Tortilla Lasagna
*Poblano Cheese Potatoes
*Cheese and Potato Stuffed Poblanos
*Breakfast Chile Rellenos
*Chicken Black Bean Torta
*Chipotle-Bean Huevos Rancheros
*Watermelon Aqua (this is sooo good for brunch or lunch on the deck; so light)
*Avocado Margarita (This sounded too bizarre not to try but there is a reason why avocados are frequently used to make a dessert creamy.Read more ›
Her recipe for Scalloped potatoes is phenominal. My wife served them on Easter with the ham. I was hoping for leftovers but there was none. The white Rue has a can of green chilis and same amount of pimentos added. I substitued the pimentos with red bell pepper. Tex Mex is a way of cooking.
Tonight my son requested sheperds pie so I'm going to make her beef Chimichanga recipe and add mixed vegis with it and then Im going to cover it with mashed potatoes with garlic, green chilis, cheddar cheese and sour cream and contain it all in a pie pastry.
Last night I made her cowboy beans with cornbread and they tasted just like the ones My Oklahoma roomates would make when we lived off base in Florida.
I'M enjoying her cookbook and I sent my son one because he is always going out for Tex Mex. Gloria I give you two thumbs up for this one and I'm looking forward to your Hatch Chili cookbook when its released in the future.

I loved this book. The only disappointing aspect was that a lot of recipes call for a can of something. Read morePublished on July 3, 2013 by Verny55
