Lorena Garcia's New Taco Classics

This is one of the best cookbooks I’ve seen recently, and I read a lot of cookbooks. If your family enjoys Mexican food, you might want to peruse this in a shady nook somewhere, preferably while sipping a margarita! Most, but not all, of the recipes have a fairly short list of ingredients. The sauces, slaws, salads, breads, and condiments look surprisingly simple. The pictures are bright, beautiful, and will get your appetite going. The few recipes that call for multiple steps and sub-recipes are the tacos and meat dishes, which include the meat recipe itself and the recipes for sauces, salsas, and slaws to accompany it. If you’re short on time, simply substitute store-bought items such as salsa, sauce, or tortillas. My personal favorite chapters are the breads and slaws.

Check out this cookbook in a catalog and grab your margarita fixings!
