I want to recommend this cookbook to both beginner and accomplished cooks. It has 100 recipes!!! from very traditional recipes like 3 variations of tamales, and surprising new items like Red Jalapeño Champagne Cocktail and Chile Ancho Meatballs! Love all the beautiful color pictures of the dishes, each recipe has step by step, very clear instructions. I especially love when he explains the history that shows the origins and background the dishes.

I was disappointed in this book mostly because I was expecting a cookbook with some historical background. What I found was a history book with some recipes. Should have read a sample before buying. If you are interested in learning more about the native Mexicans in Texas this is a good resource.

This is the best cookbook for TRUE MEXICAN FOOD. I have had the pleasure of eating many dishes from it that have been prepared by this family!!! Do yourself a favor and experience what MEXICAN food is and not texmex. Trust me there is a HUGE difference. Thank you, Adan Medrano, for sharing your family's recipes with us!!!
