Is it that time of year again already? Cold weather food season! I mean I am fully aware that you can eat what you want when you want at any time of year but this time of year, when fall arrives, in 5 days, these foods I speak of just hit different. Caldo, chili, chicken soup, menudo, tamales. Soups of any kind are a must this time of year!

Texans love our 'cold weather food!' You may remember things your mom would make from your childhood. In my Hispanic family cold weather called for menudo. I can still remember in the winter months there was going to be a lot of menudo eating in our house. And leftovers for days! Which my little Latina heart did not mind.

I also remember stew being a thing. I sure wish I could make a beef stew like momma did.

What are some other cold-weather foods in Texas?

  • chicken tortilla soup
  • pot roast is it about the cold that makes mom throw a pot roast in the oven? I don't know but I sure could go for some right now! lol
  • meatloaf-don't lie and say your mom didn't make this on a cold day

I guess it is all about comfort food? Or something quick and easy to throw in the oven! What is something you eat without fail when it's cold outside?
