The main reason I love my home state is the same reason I love any place I travel. The food. No matter what kind of food you’re craving, Texas has something to offer. But my personal favorite is the Mexican food, or should I say Tex-Mex.
For anyone who’s been to Mexico, you are missing out on what is only a few miles north. The Tex-Mex cuisine creates the most tantalizing tastes that will ever touch your tongue. This specialized zest is captured by combining about five ingredients and tons of spices into an endless variety of dishes. Whether its tacos, fajitas, or the scrumptious chicken quesadillas shown above, you can find it in Texas.
I search high and low for good Tex-Mex in each country I visit, but nothing has come close to the food I grew up with. Chuy’s, Mexi-Go, On the Border, Chipotle offer some of the best Tex-Mex in Texas. Or if you happen to be in London and need a fix, stop by the Texas Embassy.
But if you’re just traveling around the United States the best part is you don’t need a passport to get it.
