Can't take the Tex-Mex out of the Texan! Alot of the foods down here seem strangely familiar to most Texans. Occasionally, I try to introduce our Ex Pat friends to something altogether Tex-Mex! This strange sounding appetizer seems to make people question if it is dessert or appetizer...you be the judge!
