Comments: This book does just what it says it will – it provides a modest assortment of simple Mexican dishes with clear instructions that just about anyone will be able to succeed with. It has left out the hard ones. It has mostly left out ones with hard-to-find ingredients. It has not left out flavor. It has not left out authenticity.
Recipes include appetizers; soups and salads; seafood; chicken; meat; vegetables, beans, and rice; sauces, condiments, and marinades; and desserts. There is a modest glossary of 25 Mexican ingredients and terms you should know, and a short list of pantry items you should have on hand, staples you should pick up at a Mexican grocer or online, and fresh produce to pick up at the market so that you can make some or all of these recipes when the mood strikes.
