Yes… you read that right… I am one Homesick Texan. I don’t know if it’s because I had family/friends here for a month or if it’s because I skyped with my parents the other day but, I really miss Texas. Besides my friends and family (they don’t count because you will always miss them….) I miss food. I’m talkin’… mouth waterin’, juicy, fattenin’, high calorie, stick to your ribs ALL AMERICAN FOOD! It all started when my friend Dulce came to visit. We talked about what we missed in Texas (since she was living in Mexico for the past 3 years) and the topic turned to all things food.
After her visit, I made a trip to the grocery store and I saw something that sparked an idea. So, I grabbed my ingredients and whipped up a batch of “not jalapeno” poppers! Of course, I didn’t just make them for myself… I had already had a dinner appointment with the LDS missionaries so… they were my guinea pigs! Luckily, they turned out fantastic and I have been craving them since.
