Robb -- I understand you're keeping el gato in the bag regarding your take on Chili, but what can you tell us about your next book, The Tex-Mex Cook Book?

The Tex-Mex Cookbook: A History in Recipes and Photos, will be released by Broadway Books in June.

It's kind of like Legends of Texas Barbecue Cookbook in that it's a cookbook with a lot of historic black and white photos and lore.

This one tells the story of Tejano culture and Texas-Mexican cooking going back to the arrival of Juan de Onate in the 1580s up to and including such pop cultural phenomena as the Frito Bandito and Armadillo World Headquarters.

There are around 130 photos including a lot of rare archival stuff.

And the recipes rock.
