Coming from a morning show where we talk about food incessantly off-air, there really isn't anything we, as Texas-born and bred radio DJs won't eat or at least try.

In fact, one of the running jokes on the Jp and Ingra Lee Morning Show on KIXS108 is about an infamous "Freaky Food Friday" segment when we tried... get this...dried squid.

One of the greatest things about Texas food is the diversity of cultural foods we can get either in our hometown or down the road. A short drive for the Crossroads and the world of food opens up in any of the major cities we can get to in two hours; Houston, San Antonio, Corpus, Austin...it's a melting pot of munchies whatever mood for food you are in.

But, there are a few staples in the Texan diet that most "out-of-staters" think we are crazy for eating. As a bonus, we've included how to prepare most of these dishes, just in case you weren't fortunate to live in the greatest state in the nation.

Here are our Top Ten Most Disgusting Things Texans Eat That We Think Are Pretty Damn Delicious!
