It is extremely well-written, beautifully designed and features many color photographs. Not only does it offer recipes for so many different kinds of enchiladas, but also features a section on the ingredients that go into the making of enchiladas as well as more information on foods and sauces that accompany them. For anyone who has ever made enchiladas, or wants to prepare them, this book is a must have. It is a substantial hardback, very impressive and five stars for sure.
