There's nothing like a good Mexican dinner. I'm quite comfortable with some of the basics, but I've never really delved very deep into this fascinating cuisine. I'm not big on really spicy foods, and there is that reputation that Mexican food is very spicy and that has kept me away from it for too long. I have had a secret longing for several years now to learn how to make tamales from scratch. I've had no problem diving into French pastries, Italian breads and other complicated recipes, but tamales felt overwhelming to me. While I haven't made them yet, this book has inspired me to try! I just have a couple more ingredients to pick up, and then we can have some family time making tamales! I first fell in love with flautas in a tiny restaurant in Emporia, KS of all places. I was thrilled to find the recipe in here. YUM! The churros are great to do with kids, though of course they don't last very long afterward! The Burrito de Desayuno (Breakfast Rolls) took me back to Texas and the huge breakfast burritos we used to get with everything in them. I was disappointed to find there there wasn't a single recipe for making your own tortillas. I've made my own flour tortillas many times, but haven't tried my hand at corn tortillas. I was really hoping for a corn tortilla recipe. A few less drink recipes would have left plenty of room for a tortilla recipe. Overall, this is a great cookbook of Mexican cooking. Lots of gorgeous, full-color photographs and clear directions. I would highly recommend it. I received a copy of this book from Skyhorse Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
