Location: The Culinary Center of Kansas City

More than 200 years of independent thinking in the Lone Star State has produced culinary traditions based on fierce regional pride as ingrained as the dust of cattle trails.  The tastes of Texas are as varied as its people, yet Texas cuisine still generally remains true to a tasty blend of Mexican and old-time ranch favorites that are characteristic of the border regions of Texas and Mexico. (a/k/a Tex-Mex).  

Let’s explore some delicious Tex-Mex foods with the one and only Chef & Lead Instructor Jill Garcia Schmidt.  Chef Jill is one of our most requested instructions and she’s absolutely wild about Tex-Mex cuisine.

Oh yeah, she can’t wait to drop some culinary knowledge on you as she shows off her smokin’ hot culinary skills while teaching you to prepare spicy dishes like Queso Fundido with Homemade Tortilla Chips, Chile con Carne served up with Jalapeno Corn Muffin, super yummy Beef Puffy Tacos with Charro Beans, as well as another traditional side dish.  In the truest of Tex-Mex flavors. we’ll end with Churros with Mexican Hot Chocolate. Now, that sounds sooo good, doesn’t it?  

Yep, you’ll even get in on some of the cooking fun.  You never know, we may even invite a cowboy to serenade as we eat. Maybe not, but it's fun to think about! Yahoo! Hope on your horse, and join us, won’t you?
