I literally cannot quit cooking from this cookbook. I'm obsessed with it! Every new recipe we try is so wonderful that I find myself wanting to cook another, and another, and another.
My family doesn't pay much attention to my cookbook collection, but when they see this book out on the counter they do cheers. They know that whatever I'm going to make is going to be wonderful.
I'd cook my way through the entire book if I could, but for now some of the recipes I'd like to try
are: Chorizo Empanadas; Queso Cookies; Queso Flameado; Green Chile Chowder; Carne Guisada; Cheese Enchiladas with Chile Con Carne; Soft Cheese Tacos; Tamales with Rajas; Pasilla Tomatillo Braised Short Ribs; Tex-Mex Meat Loaf with a Chipotle-Tomato Glaze; Pasilla Garlic Shrimp with Tomatillo Cheese Grits; Tex-Mex Squash Casserole; and Chorizo Asadero Bread.
Below is a quick roundup of all The Homesick Texan recipes I've made so far.

Words really cannot express how much I love this cookbook. I've made twelve recipes and each recipe has been a huge hit.
