I stumbled across this cookbook in a free offer and glad I did. Great recipes. I made Mexican Rice yesterday and it was great. Can't wait to try more recipes like the shredded beef and the salsa.Thanks!

He named it correctly "Mexican Cuisine for American Cooks" is really what this cookbook is all about. He gives you some great short cuts (buying AND cooking in bulk being 2 of them) and some good basic info on storage of the foods before and after they are made. He has some basic meals that aren't so Mexican but they are yummy and still kind of fall into the same style of foods, easy, tasty and priced right! I enjoyed the book and will be keeping this one.

If you have a large family or a freezer that you like to keep stocked, then David Cowles Mexican Cuisine for American Cooks might be just the ticket. First and foremost, David's recipes are large, great for parties or the kind of cook once - eat several meals cooking that is so helpful to busy families.

Inside you'll find recipes for a wide variety of Mexican/Tex-Mex dishes along with stories, menu suggestions and some marvelous ideas for stocking your freezer. (Many Mexican/Tex-Mex dishes are ideal candidates for freezing.) Take David's recipe for Cheese Enchiladas for example -

Cheese Enchiladas

These cheese enchiladas are light, tender, and delicious, and will undoubtedly be the best you've ever tasted! One tray of six enchiladas will satisfy two people as an entree and three people as a side dish. Enchilada-making can get to be a bit messy, so it's a good idea to prepare at least 12 trays (72 enchiladas) at a time and freeze what you're not going to eat immediately. That way, you'll have to clean the pans and stove only once for twelve meals. Never forget Rule Number One: Whenever possible, cook for more than one meal.

Ingredients
72 corn tortillas
5 pounds grated cheese
2 cups chopped white or yellow onions
Red enchilada sauce
Chopped scallions
Black olives, halved
Cooking oil
12 aluminum foil brownie pan trays, 9-1/4 x 6-1/2 x 1-1/2 inches
Aluminum foil

If you want to just learn the basics, and still get taken out to your fav Mexican restaurant for the more complex dishes, look no further.

Have a great enchilda, pico de gallo and sauce recipes.

Made the Chicken enchiladas, learned the difference between chili powder and Chili molido - which is major..Sour cream vs. Crema..

Get it and wow your family. These are crowd sized recipes but easily cut down to family size without loss of flavor etc.

I think this book should be re-titled "New Mexico" flavored Mexican Food for Americans as, based upon where the author lives / grew up, that is the leaning of some of the recipes; you certainly do have a difference between the various USA regions as, for example, everything is cooked a little differently such as in California and Texas.

The author pulls together some of the basic staple Mexican recipes, but I will warn you the recipes are more in line for feeding a group of people vs. say a family of four. That's ok, as the author recognizes that fact and for the majority of the recipes he gives you storage instructions for short-term (fridge) and longer-term (freezer) storage as well as the best type of container system based on his experiences.

The two recipes I like the best, and made according to the author's instructions, are the pico de gallo and "Carmen's Liquid Fire" as each have a good taste and the liquid fire is a little spicy. All of the recipes are written in a conversational tone as if two friends were sitting across the table from each other.

I originally picked this book up during a free Kindle promotion and, as I type this review, the pricing has reverted to $4.99; I think that's pretty reasonable, and would have paid that for the liquid fire recipe alone! If you are looking for some good, easy to follow New Mexico Mexican recipes, I would recommend this one.
