Texans love to eat. In fact, I might venture to say that it’s a state-wide favorite past-time. And when we do eat, we’re pretty dang serious about it. We’ve got some strong ideas on what counts as good Texas food and what doesn’t. We’ve listed some of our favorite Texas dishes below, with recipes attached. What’s your favorite Texas delicacy?

Let’s just get this one out of the way. No one will argue that chicken fried steak does not belong on any Texas foodie list. We know how seriously Texans take this dish. A golden breaded crunchy coating gives way to a moist and meaty inside. Dish this up with some seriously smooth and buttery mashed potatoes and a creamy velvety gravy, and no one is going away from the table hungry.

2. Armadillo Eggs

My investigations led me to discover the perfect nugget for noshing. Cream cheese-stuffed, jalapenos, hiding in a spicy meatball of sausage. Want to make some up for your next shin-dig?
