Smile Uniquely Texas Christmas food

My inlaws are hosting Christmas this year and they want a "Uniquely Texas" Christmas theme. So they are going to smoke brisket, chicken, etc. and we are bringing desserts, sides, and appetizers. Oh yeah, they are making pecan pies.

I'm committed to making Dewberry pie since I had a bummer crops of Dewberries.

What Texas appetizers and sides would you recommend? Or anything else that is uniquely Texas.

I have to admit I didn't know anything about the tamales around Christmas time until I moved to SA. I look forward to them now. There is a lady that comes to our building selling them about this time of year.

Some type of wild game appetizers and tex-mex dish. Tamales are a good one, especially if your going yo make them home made, get the whole family together and make them.

Can’t believe Menudo hasn’t been thrown out there yet! When we go along that theme it’s usually surf n turf, brisket and grilled gulf shrimp!

before my parent died, we used to have a big tamale making as a family each Christmas. It was pretty much an assembly line. Christmas meal was always a big mexican food feast.

Summer sausage or any long sausage that hangs down when you hold it by the end...

I'm about as Texan as they come and I've never heard of "hangdown." It sounds like something that happens on a muggy summer day wearing boxer shorts.

My family makes several hundred pounds of sausage a year. I think if I started calling it hangdown they might not include me anymore.

Must be a regional thing. Like dewberry pie. Most folks around here wouldn't know what a dewberry was. Guess that's an east Texas thing.
