Staff Picks

Dallas-Style Sloppy Joes

Rating: Unrated
These sloppy Joes feature zesty sauces and fresh veggies.

Cowboy Caviar

Rating: Unrated
Black beans absorb other flavors superbly, so try to leave this for at least 20 minutes before serving to allow the different flavors to blend together.

Cornucopia Salad

Rating: Unrated
Delicious salad that tastes like the III Forks salad (if you live in the Dallas area). It's an excellent salad that everyone will love, and it's very easy to make!

Cowboy Cookies III

Rating: Unrated
These are yummy. If you can manage to get them to cook just the right way, they aren't crunchy, but soft and the tiniest bit chewy, and melt in your mouth!

Baby Doe's Cheese Soup with Beer

Rating: Unrated
Baby Doe's Cheese Soup came from a famous steak place in Dallas, Texas.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Rating: Unrated
It's a great cookie, one of the kids' favorites. This doesn't call for nuts, but I sometimes add about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans.

Rich Mexican Corn

Rating: Unrated
This recipe came from my step-mom in Dallas, Texas. They like it hot so they put in a few extra jalapenos.

Cowboy Stew I

Rating: Unrated
This is nice and thick and yummy. Sour cream is also good on this.

Baked Chicken Reuben

Rating: Unrated
This is a great make-ahead dish from Marcia C. Adams of Fort Wayne, Indiana. It took the top $10,000 prize in the National Chicken Cooking Contest in Dallas, Texas. It sounds weird, but it is good.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Rating: Unrated
Quick, easy and delicious mashed potatoes with corn and carrots.

Brazilian Grilled Pineapple

Rating: Unrated
Favorite at a Brazilian steakhouse in Dallas. Not sure if this is the exact recipe they use but it tastes very close. Great side for kabobs and steak.

Bethany's Frito® Pie

Rating: Unrated
Fritos® and chili! This was a real favorite when I was a kid, and it still is. With the Frito-Lay® Company being based in Dallas, this dish is about as Texan as you can get.

Inspiration and Ideas

Cowboy Margaritas

Rating: Unrated
This is a fun cocktail that will appeal to many different tastes because it balances the tart, sweet, and tangy flavors of the liquors beautifully. This may be served frozen or on the rocks in a sugar-rimmed glass.

Greek Cowboy Hash and Eggs

Rating: Unrated
This recipe features one of my all-time favorite vegetables: the sweet potato. The tanginess of the feta (the Greek part) is a strange but tasty complement to the smoky, spicy chipotle chili powder (the cowboy part). This meal is great for brunch and simple to scale down for a quick dinner when you're cooking for yourself.

Grandmas Cowboy Cookies

Rating: Unrated

A soft cookie with tons of chocolate and flavor.
