Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The books [has] fun photos, cute tips, and easy to follow instructions. One look and we’re already reaching for the chips." —The Latin Kitchen blog

"What could be more fun than a plate of nachos? I say an entire book filled with irresistible recipes for everyone's favorite crunchy-spicy snack. Lee and Rachel share their best creations, from the deliciously familiar to the enticingly creative, including everything you can think of to go with them. ¡Muchas gracías!" —Rick Rodgers, Bon Appetit contributor and author of Dip It! and Thanksgiving 101

“Traditionalists have always looked down on nachos. As a born and raised Mexican, I know I did my fair share of scoffing. But with Ultimate Nachos, Lee and Rachel remind us all that when people feel real passion for a dish, whether it's traditional or not, it can become a thing of beauty” —Roberto Santibanez, author of Truly Mexican and Tacos, Tortas and Tamales, and owner of Fonda

Ultimate Nachos is the kind of book you will use endlessly for any and all types of nacho cravings. Whether it's nachos for breakfast, late-night, or even dessert, Ultimate Nachos delivers playful and fun twists on the classic, yielding results so delicious you'll never be able to scarf down those sad movie theater nachos ever again.” —Adrianna Adarme, author of Pancakes and founder of A Cozy Kitchen blog
