7 Tex-Mex Dishes You Have To Try

Tex-Mex dishes are some of the best things to eat in Texas, particularly in San Antonio. For centuries San Antonio has perfectly blended authentic Mexican and Texan influences to create a genre of its own. Smothered enchiladas and spicy tortilla soup are best enjoyed close to the border, and chimichangas are rumored to have been invented in Texas.

When you think of what sort of food Tex-Mex is, you think beef, spicy and cheesy! These are staples of the classic dishes you’ll find in South Texas. This cuisine is also super easy to make at home.
