A Definitive Ranking Of The 5 Top Spots To Get Queso In Texas

Living in Texas for 18 years means tasting A LOT of queso... trust me.

A Definitive Ranking Of The 5 Top Spots To Get Queso In Texas

I recently went home for spring break and as one does, indulged in the copious amounts of queso Texas has to offer which led to me ranking my top 5 favorite spots to fill my stomach with some gooey melted cheese. Who will come out on top? Stay tuned to find out!

5- Chuy's

First thing's first: being last on the list in no way means this queso is awful, rather it just means it faced tough competition and couldn't get to the top. Chuy's queso is the definition of simplicity- just some delicious melted cheese served with piping hot tortilla chips and I LOVE it

4- Mi Cocina

This is the queso I grew up on and tried so hard to recreate as soon as I could cook in the kitchen without starting a fire. No, it's not my favorite queso but it still holds and special place in my heart-due largely to the red peppers mixed in as well as the paprika sprinkled atop it.

3- Taco Crush

This queso is new to me, as the restaurant is barely 2 years old, however it already has earned the #3 spot on my Top Five list. All hail spicy queso with an equally spicy avocado ranch swirl... a match made in heaven. Bonus points for offering habanero sauce on the side for those who wish to add even more spice and possibly burn their mouths!

2- Velvet Taco

Red Curry Coconut Queso... sounds sketchy in writing but once you hit that chew... whew your world is changed forever. What I love most about this queso is the perfect balance of spice from the curry element and the sweet creaminess from the coconut, truly the world's most dynamic duo.

1- Torchy's Tacos

This may be biased seeing as Torchy's is my favorite place to eat in all of Texas, but trust me when I say their queso is next level heavenly. No seriously, this is the queso you would make for your significant other's parents to impress them... it's just THAT good. From the cotija cheese sprinkled on top to the hatch green chiles mixed inside the cheese dip all the way to the scoop of guac they place in the bottom of the dish, this queso is the ultimate mouth party.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
