The Texas food is quite popular for its unique cooking style and use of ingredients. The article highlights a few dishes that are a must in every restaurant menu. Let’s have a look at few of them:
Chips and salsa
Yes, you heard it right. Salsa and chips are favorite of almost all. The first rule you need to know about them is that you can’t literally stop eating them once you start. The most popular variety of salsa is Queso.
Queso is a heavier filling sibling of salsa. The melted cheese is blended with spices, pico de gallo and in some cases with a little guacamole. If you want to have it as a complete meal, you can combine it with some meat too.
The normal salsa sauce is prepared from tomatoes, chilies, onions and other spices along with a large amount of cilantro.
Texas is king of BBQ. Backyard barbeque parties are a quite common site. The chicken or beef is first cut into cubes and then slid down over the skewer in a pattern, and is slowly cooked to perfection. The accompaniments include green pepper, onion, beef and chicken.
This dipping sauce is accepted for all food items in the region. You can dip pizza, fries, chicken nuggets, Texas roast and lot more. It is a must on the every lunch and dinner table.
In the region, Tortillas are usually thick and less chewy. It is like a staple dish for Texans. Made from corn or flour, the fillings differ from beef, spices and beans as per the taste of an individual. In some eat-outs, it is also served with hot sauce or salsa.
It is available in many variations. It is skimpy with fillings of beans, cheese and rice. Stewed chicken taco is a classic Texan dish. It involves the stewing of a fresh chicken in a large cauldron with fresh onions and chili.
Chicken fried steak
It is a staple food for a hungry Texan. Every restaurant in the state serves this dish. It is quite filling.
What makes Texas Chili different from other region is the exclusion of beans.
