“San Antonio’s chili queens and their families were working-class entrepreneurs. Few names are recalled with certainty, but photos, newspaper reports, and recorded recollections testify to their enterprise and their presence on the city’s plazas. They continue to charm and to intrigue.” — from The Search for a Chili Queen
