(Dec. 30, 2013) -- Looking for a new holiday recipe? Look no further than the UTSA Mexican Cookbook Collection, one of the largest and most extensive Mexican cookery collections in the United States.
Part of the UTSA Libraries Special Collections, the collection includes more than 1,000 cookbooks in English and Spanish featuring the cuisine of Mexico, Texas and the Southwest from 1789 to 2013.
Recipes from the collection are posted weekly on La Cocina Histórica, a blog published by UTSA Special Collections celebrating and showcasing Mexican cuisine and culinary history.
This month, the UTSA Libraries staff members have taken turns testing holiday-themed recipes from the collection. Visit La Cocina Histórica to find unique recipes for Ensalada de Navidad (Christmas Salad), Buñuelos (fried dough balls), an apple pecan salad and bread pudding. While you’re there you can search through the blog archives to find other recipes such as Ponche de Navidad (Christmas Punch), Mole de Guajolote (Turkey Mole) and many others.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
