Picosos’ Stuffed Deep-Fried Avocados

Try these over-the-top, cheesy, fried avocados from Picoso’s Mexican Kitchen in Lubbock. Before hitting the hot oil, they are coated in cheese and breadcrumbs, creating a crispy, gooey crust. Here, we stuff them with shredded chicken, but you can also top with grilled shrimp, sliced steak, or peppers and black beans for a vegetarian alternative.

Steak 48 Corn Crème Brûlée

This decadent side dish from Steak 48 in Houston is a clever mash-up of silky crème brûlée and a classic corn pudding. If you can, make this dish in the fall when fresh corn is still in season – we promise you’ll taste the difference.

Mexican Independence Day at Hugo’s

In honor of Mexican Independence Day, star chef Hugo Ortega is bringing Chiles en Nogada back to the menu at his eponymous Houston restaurant. The patriotic dish is a roasted poblano pepper stuffed with a spiced picadillo (meat and fruit filling), then topped with a creamy walnut sauce and a flourish of bright red pomegranate […]

My 5 All-Time Favorite Texas Cafés

Laid back casual dining is always my go-to when I’m on the road, but you won’t find me sacrificing good food for speed and convenience. With so many great cafes and small local businesses serving fresh sandwiches, fluffy pancakes and towering burgers, fast food chains just don’t stack up. In celebration of the forthcoming Season […]

Tanji Talks: Texan Cafe and Pie Shop

I’m taking you outside Austin’s city limits to a cute cafe in Hutto. Texan Cafe & Pie Shop is serving up comfort food for lunch and dinner that will leave you feeling all […]

7 Must-Visit Barbecue Spots

As Texans, we’ll admit that we can be overly proud of things like our state size and our sports teams, but I think we can all agree that we serve up some pretty mean barbecue. Juicy, slow-smoked brisket, tender ribs slathered in sauce, and more cheesy, buttery sides than you can imagine. In celebration of […]
