San Antonio: How to Make Puffy Tacos

Erin Zimmer 20 comments

A puffy taco is not a crispy taco, a crunchy taco, or a soft taco. It is strictly a puffy taco, and after having one (or three), you may be willing to forsake all other taco forms. Chef Diana Barrios-Treviño Los Barrios in San Antonio will readily admit that she didn't invent the puffy, but she and her family have perfected them over the years. Maybe you've seen her make them on Throwdown with Bobby Flay (and win)? The puffy taco shells are super-crisp on the outside but soft within—surprisingly light for fried dough. We were recently in San Antonio and learned how to make the Tex-Mex specialty. More

From the blog Home & Season: We headed home, then ordered in some pizza, from Big Lou’s….OMG this is the pizza to die for…absolutely delicious. Everything is made from scratch. We’ve met the owner, he’s a down to earth guy. The biggest pizza you can order is 42″…I’m not kidding. Then you have to pay $5.00 extra for the box, oh and you need a truck or a van to fit the pizza if you’re ordering out! And you must have a big crowd to feed or you’ll be having pizza for the next two days! Here’s a pic... More

The Breakfast Tacos of San Antonio

Lia Bulaong 3 comments

Denver Post sportswriter John Henderson visits San Antonio for work and develops a fascination for that city's great contribution to Tex-Mex cuisine, the humble breakfast taco: "I can't imagine trying to drive with cheddar and beans flowing down my wrist but in San Antonio, the traditions of neighboring Mexico clash with fast-paced modern American society. I often saw people driving through downtown in the morning with a taco nearing their mouth. It's messier than a cellphone but not nearly as annoying. "It doesn't take up too much of your time when you're rushing," Torres said. "You call, it's ready, you pick it up and go."... More
