From Lubbock to Laredo, Paris to El Paso, the Red River to the Rio Grande, ninety-nine of the leading cookbooks from the Lone Star State have contributed their most popular recipes to create this remarkable collection. This second helping of Texas-style cuisine has as much variety and diversity as the countryside. It's spicy, it's lively, it's tasty, it's hearty, it's creative, it's Mexican, it's Southwestern...it's what we like to call Tex-Mex Plus! It's a taste as big as the state itself. Delectable dishes such as Grilled Texas Tequila Tuna, Cowboy Cornbread, Braggin'-Rights Brisket, White Lightning Chili, and Sam Houston's Golden Spice Cake are just a sampling of the 500 or so recipes included within these pages. Best of the Best from Texas II is the follow-up to Best of the Best from Texas, which remains one of the most popular titles in Quail Ridge Press' acclaimed Best of the Best State Cookbook Series.
