With the help of local Southwest restaurants, media, and residents, Chadwick has compiled a cookbook perfect for experiencing the abundant culture and flair San Antonio has to offer. Foods and Flavors of San Antonio is perfect for anyone who enjoys Tex-Mex-inspired cuisine or any cook who is looking to expand their culinary repertoire.

By Chandler #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on April 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
As an Austinite, it's not as though I'm lacking in Tex-Mex restaurant choices here, but in all honesty some of the best Tex-Mex I eat is when we take one of our frequent weekend getaway trips to San Antonio since it's just 1.5 hours from here. We LOVE the flavors, yet we also love to cook at home.

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
*Jalapeno Chicken
*Poblano Cheese Potatoes
*Cheese and Potato Stuffed Poblanos
*Quickie Quesadillas
*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.

I have prepared four recipes out of this book and they were fantastic. I have been searching for a recipe for beef burritos like we used to dine on every friday in Pensacola Florida when I was in the Navy. When I bit into her Beef Chimichanga I knew I found the spiced meat mixture I had been searching for.
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 enjoy many kinds of foods. While in San Antonio, I make sure to go to the Food Networks restaurant and diner picks. I wish each place had a cookbook of their own. I enjoy this San Antonio cookbook because it takes me back to those beautiful places in San Antonio. The smells, food and kind people. The recipes are simple. I especially like all the different types of drinks that one can make. My favorite drink is the horchata drink. This one takes a bit of time, but well worth the taste. At the beginning of the book, the author goes over the places to visit., along with websites. I have highlighted the ones I have already been to and will make sure to go to the ones that I have not been to. I am glad that I made this purchase. I have many more recipes to try and to share.

I grew up in San Antonio and am always looking for cookbooks specifically from there. Texas is famous for it's Tex-Mex but, it all began in San Antonio and the food there is unique to itself to this day. There's a lot of familiar recipes in this book and I really enjoyed going over them and rediscovering the ingredients.
