Everything is bigger in Texas -- including flavor! From down-home favorites like our King Ranch Casserole to traditional Texas dessert recipes like our Texas Sheet Cake, you don't have to travel to the Lone Star State in order to get that big taste you're craving. So round up the gang and let 'em know they're about to get a big bite of that "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"

Easy Texas Appetizers & Sides

Tex-Mex Spiral Potatoes

If you want a side dish with the big flavor of Texas, then Tex-Mex Potato Spirals are just what you're looking for! These baked potatoes make the perfect side to your Texas barbecue platter.

Texas Caviar

Hold on, Pardner! There're no fish eggs in our Texas Caviar. Texan's have a different idea of what most of us think of as caviar and one taste of this change of pace nibbler will surely have you hooked!

Lone Star Rice

We gave this recipe a little Southwestern flair by adding some Texas-inspired ingredients. Our Lone Star Rice is the perfect change-of-pace side dish to go with any of your favorite main dishes, like chicken or steak.

Root Beer Dogs

The original corn dogs, known as "Corny Dogs," debuted in 1942 at the Texas State Fair. Tasty Root Beer Dogs are an update of a classic recipe: They get their tasty twist from root beer soda, which makes the batter lighter and more flavorful.

Texas TNT Dip

Thanks to a viewer in Texas, we were able to bring Texas TNT Dip to tables across the globe. She promised us it would be dynamite and, oh boy, she sure was right!

Queso Dip

In Mexico, practically everything is made con queso (with cheese). So what could be more authentic, satisfying, and simple than this Queso Dip?

What's the best place for down-home Texas Chicken Fried Steak with Texas River Bottom Gravy? We found traditional recipes for both when we visited Hickory Hollow restaurant in Houston, Texas, and now you can make it at home.

Texas Two-Step Ribs

These saucy, barbecue-slathered ribs will have you doing the two-step 'round the dinner table. We used baby back ribs to make our Texas Two-Step Ribs 'cause they're the sweetest and most tender of all the ribs, and who doesn't want to have the sweetest summer ever?  

King Ranch Casserole

This stick-to-your-ribs Tex-Mex casserole gets its name from the biggest ranch in Texas (and the world!) -- King Ranch!
