Texas is the home of Whataburger, where families and deep-in-debt college students have been flocking for decades. We also invented the corn dog and we eat it with... Whataburger brand ketchup! Every Texas party has to have Frito pie served in the bag and topped with sour cream, cheese, and cilantro.
The one stereotype that is, and will always be, correct is the fact that we BBQ. A lot. Brisket, ribs, sausage, fajitas... it’s all good. If you want to bring in South Texas’s Mexican influence, serve fruit cups: fresh-cut melon and cucumber seasoned with a squeeze of lime and Lucas or Tajin. Add some smoke to that sabor with roasted corn, AKA street elote served with butter, cotija cheese, lime, chili powder and cilantro!
