Recently, a co-worker of mine told me about a cookbook called The Homesick Texan. Now, THIS is a book that's right up my alley! So, a brief history on the Homesick Texan. The Homesick Texan, aka Lisa, is a Houston native (she went to high school right down the road from my alma mater...small world!) who moved to New York. Struggling to find some good 'ol Texas cuisine, she decided to start her own blog and share her recipes with other Homesick Texans (like me!).
As soon as my cookbook arrived in the mail, I very quickly scanned the pages for Tex Mex. Last month, I made her Uncle Richard's Salsa and paired it with her Tacos al Carbon. Y'all...this meal was AMAZING! Here's a few photos from this awesome Tex Mex experience! My taste buds seriously thought they were back in Texas!
