My boyfriend and I have been flooded out of our apartment in Boulder, Colorado and have been living with his parents, in his childhood bedroom for months now while our apartment is under construction. While we’re definitely anxious to get back we’ve been having a ton of fun in the Bigger is Better state of Texas. Here, at least one meal a day incorporates the amazing, perfected TexMex cuisine. Salsa is their ketchup and queso is their mustard and I for one am not complaining. Through out our stay here we have created 2 of our favorite recipes that are the perfect companion to Football Sundays, friends and endless beer. Enjoy!
