Will be visiting SA during July 4th weekend. Looking for tex mex away from the Riverwalk area. Last time I was there someone mentioned a place call Rosa's or Rosaria's or something similar. Anyone has a clue which place I am talking about?
Austin has a ton of great Mexican food, from old-school Tex-Mex to authentic interior Mexican cuisine. We wanted to see the range, so we consulted Austin Chowhounds for a little guidance. On scrumptiouschef's urging, we learned some of the secrets behind a family recipe for enchiladas, complete with classic brown gravy, served at a bowling alley. There were also breakfast tacos at the tiny El Taco Rico trailer, another Chowhound favorite where every corn tortilla is made fresh, and a taste of authentic home-style Mexican cooking at El Mesón.
The beauty of this colorful meatball recipe is that it can be both a bite-size party appetizer and a hearty main dish. Tex-Mex Meatballs in Red Chile Sauce take their heat from a broiled poblano pepper, and creamy Cotija makes for perfect tacos.
Basic Vegetable Soup
This soup is an equally wonderful way to use up all the leftover veggie odds and ends in your fridge, or to celebrate the freshest produce in season by buying it specifically for the dish (and if you get a CSA box, it can serve both purposes). Whatever vegetables you use, this is an easy, nutritious, and delicious meal, and endlessly customizable. Fresh pesto makes a great, vibrant garnish, but you could also simply sprinkle on a bit of grated Parmesan and cracked black pepper.
Easy Pie Crust
Homemade pie crust really elevates your desserts (and savory tarts and quiches too), and isn't as hard as you might think, especially if you use a food processor to make the dough. Even if you don't roll it out exactly evenly or press it in to your pie plate perfectly, the buttery taste and flaky texture will more than make up for any cosmetic imperfections. Give this easy pie crust recipe a try next time you bake -- and if you want to use it for a savory dish, just leave out the sugar in the recipe.
Oven-ready in just 20 minutes, these whole-grain donuts are much lighter in calories and sugar than the typical sour cream cake donut. Topped with a touch of glaze and nutty pecans, these delightful bites are a truly satisfying breakfast treat.
Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Brisket
A spice rub with paprika, chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, cayenne, and garlic, and a smoky-sweet barbecue sauce with chipotle chiles lend mouth-watering layers of flavor to beef brisket, which gets incredibly tender after 10 hours in the slow cooker. Slice or shred the brisket and serve on good, sturdy bread for the ultimate BBQ sandwich, or make a combo plate with meat, slaw, baked beans, potato salad, or other classic BBQ sides.
