“Three Sisters” refers to the three main crops of Native Americans: beans, corn and squash. The crops are planted close together and in this way benefit from one another. Corn stalks provide the structure for beans to climb, beans provide nitrogen to…

Chili Pie

Chili Pie by Reeni

This is a Tex-Mex favorite with a chili 'filling' that gets smothered in cheese then topped with cornbread batter 'crust' and baked in the oven for a cheesy, spicy finish.

San Antone Black Bean Salad

San Antone Black Bean Salad by Amos Miller

With friends and family living in the great state of Texas, my frequent visits have always meant new flavor profiles to experience, new ways to express myself in the kitchen and when I am invited out and asked to 'bring something to pass'. I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

Texas Style Pinto Beans

Texas Style Pinto Beans by Sergio Hernandez

Slightly spicy cumin, cilantro and jalapenos lend a Southwestern Tex/Mex flair to tender pinto beans in this recipe. I've added a ham hock and/or bacon for added flavor. Goes well with the spanish rice recipe I've posted.

Ninfa's Green Sauce

Ninfa's Green Sauce by myra byanka

Ninfa, one of the pioneers in Tex-Mex cooking, used to serve this green sauce in her restaurants. Since she's passed, the Ninfa's near me has stopped adding avocados, no doubt due to the expense, which is not worth eating. So, I make my own. The hardest ingredient to find may be green tomatoes. Plan on making this salsa for 6 or…

Crockpot Carne Adovada Recipe

Crockpot Carne Adovada Recipe by John Spottiswood

We had this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic. The complexity of flavors - sweet, salty, spicy, and savory - is really amazing. It's better than 99% of the dishes I've ever been served in a mexican restaurant. I loved the carne adovada I had in Santa Fe, but I honestly don't remember any that matched this. If you try this…

Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so! (This was before the era of food safety regulation and inspection - I just made it in our home kitchen!) Dad had taught me how to make his chili, and everyone agreed it was in a class of its…

texas date loaf candy

texas date loaf candy by Marlin Rinehart

This is a delicious old-fashioned Texas recipe similar to fudge but is shaped into a log and sliced. I was surprised to learn from a Mexican cookbook it is also made in old Mexico.

Texas Caviar (Bean & Corn Salsa or Salad)

Texas Caviar (Bean & Corn Salsa or Salad) by Salad Foodie

If I need black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year's day, I prefer to get them in Texas Caviar....a.k.a. Cowboy Caviar.....a.k.a. Southern Caviar...a.k.a. Bean and Corn Salsa. There's as many names for this as there are variations. This makes 8 cups and serves a huge hungry crowd - think Super Bowl Sunday. It also keeps well.…

Guacamole Tex-Mex

Guacamole Tex-Mex by Amos Miller

Super simple - fast - packs just enough punch. It will be the best you ever tasted. Bring on the cervesas, margaritas - and lots of quality tortilla chips! Just like Chipotle - but homemade!

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread by Salad Foodie

Blue cornmeal imparts a blue-violet cast to the bread, a coarser consistency and a sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white cornmeal. It is 20% higher in protein and has a lower glycemic index, good news for those with elevated blood sugar. However it can be difficult to find! Arrowhead and Bob's Red Mill make it and some health…

Ojo de Cabra Estofado (Eye of the Goat Bean Stew)

Ojo de Cabra Estofado (Eye of the Goat Bean Stew) by Ken Hulme

Here's my take on a traditional Mexican stew, using Ojo de Capra (Eye of the Goat) heirloom beans. This is a stew; it has beans in it. Chile does not contain beans.
