Sidle up to this food truck near the Alamo to taste Texan history by the bowl. Using historic recipes from the Institute of Texan Cultures’ archives, local cook Ana Fernandez has been doling out the red stuff since 2012. Rather than risk excommunication from the Texas diaspora, she eschews beans, chili powder, and tomatoes. Instead, Fernandez creates a base of house-roasted serrano, ancho, and jalapeño peppers, to which she adds a plenty of ground beef and slow-cooked brisket. Giddyup. instituteofchili.com
