Original Texas Mexican Cuisine Menu

Thought I’d share the menu that I served for a catered party last week.  The conversation around the food revolved around history, our place in it and why it is that Texas Native American food is so much like Mexican food.

I’ll start uploading the recipes, one by one.  Some of them, like the gazpacho and the sangría and guacamole,  are already on here.
