¡Buen Provecho!: Traditional Mexican Flavors from My Cocina to Yours
by Ericka Sanchez
5 out of 5 stars
This cookbook has recipes for meals made in the traditional Mexican style. There are recipes for Salsas, Breakfast, Appetizers, Salads, Soups, Main Dishes, Drinks, and Desserts. And of course, there is an entire section for Holiday recipes that are deliciously Mexican.
These recipes take me back to my childhood in Mexico! Just reading the book makes my mouth water. Every recipe has a large colorful photograph that shows you the delectable result. I’m so impressed with how attractive this book is!
The instructions are clear, and most of the ingredients are easy to find at any grocery store. There are a few ingredients like epazote, dried hibiscus flowers, and tamarind that you might have to buy at a Hispanic market. But there are dozens of recipes to try that don’t require any fancy ingredients.
There are also a few tools that might not be in a regular American kitchen, like a tortilla press, but you could probably make do without it if you had to.
The recipes I really want to try are the pozole soup, salmon tacos, carrot enchiladas, and the black bean tetelas.
I am especially impressed that there is a recipe for making your own corn tortillas in the REAL traditional style. All these recipes look so amazing!
