From the foremost authority on Mexican cooking, a collection of tradition-packed Mexican dishes, easy enough for every day.

As much as Rick Bayless loves the bold flavors of Mexican food, he understands that preparing many Mexican specialties requires more time than most of us have for weeknight dinners. Mexican Everyday is written with an understanding of how busy we all are. It is a collection of 90 full-flavored recipes—like Green Chile Chicken Tacos, Shrimp Ceviche Salad, Chipotle Steak with Black Beans—that meet three criteria for “everyday” food: 1) most need less than 30 minutes’ involvement; 2) they have the fresh, delicious taste of simple, authentic preparations; and 3) they are nutritionally balanced, fully rounded meals—no elaborate side dishes required.

Filled with recipes featured on Rick’s Public Television series, Mexico—One Plate at a Time, this book provides dishes you can enjoy with family and friends, day in and day out.

Rick thank you for bringing this book. We loved watching your show when it was on and we're hoping you will return soon. I am hoping you will introduce this book and others on DVD so we can go step by step and pause so we can complete the step before moving on to the next. Rick knows more about the food, the people and the recipes than we could ever hope to know. He's the "Real Deal", trust me. We love your passion and respect for the culture whom you represent in this book. Awsome job Rick. I've purchased 3 books of yours for Christmas Presents. My granddaughter especially who in her heart really wanted to be a chef but we can not afford the tuition. So thank you for giving us these wonderful recipes.

We find ourselves using this book more any of the dozens of others that we own. Recpies are quick to prepare with easy to find ingredients that I can prepare on weekdays after work. On the other hand, the recipes are so good that we have cooked entire menus from this book when we have company. Even our kids plead for certain favorite from this volume. We haven't been disappointed yet.

This is the cookbook for nights when time is short, but you still want to create a quality Mexican meal at home. There are plenty of shortcuts here. Purists might scoff at the used of canned goods and prepared salsas, but the results belie the methods. Don't make this your only Mexican cookbook, there are better works including several by the same author. However for the harried chef, this is an excellent choice.

To call Mexican food time consuming to produce is an understatement. It can be down-right laborious, which often relegates it to weekend cooking. In Mexican Everyday, Rick Bayless has captured the essence of Mexican flavors in easily prepared recipes that don't take oodles of time to produce while maintaining the integrity of the Mexican flavor profiles. That is no small accomplishment. He has made good tasting, easy to prepare, delightfully tasty Mexican food a viable option for weeknight meals.

Yum! Mexican made from your pantry. Rick has made these recipes more accessible by not using any exotic ingredients or at least giving you options. More pictures would have been good.

The separate section with descriptions and photos of Mexican foods is really informative and provides context for the recipes section.
