Great recipes that will keep you in the kitchen cooking as they clamor for more.

After buying "The Everything Chinese Cookbook", I was really disappointed in "The Everything Mexican Cookbook."
Morning Joy
Several of the types mentioned did not seem to appear in a single recipe anywhere in the book.

I appreciated this otherwise hard-to-find collection of recipes, but felt that the quality of the book could have been better.

The introductory information presented the basics of Mexican cooking, including descriptions of a few types of chili peppers and a list of American substitutes for Mexican cheeses. Unfortunately, the selection of chili peppers mentioned in the list was not as practical as it could have been. Several of the types mentioned did not seem to appear in a single recipe anywhere in the book. Other types, which are common enough that I was able to find them at my local supermarket, did not even make the list. I was disappointed that the more authentic Mexican cheeses were not listed in the recipes at all, having simply been replaced by American substitutions. (I would have liked to see both listed as options, since I am able to get certain Mexican cheeses at the supermarket.)

The instructions for the recipes were rather inconsistent, as well, and someone who is not already a fairly experienced cook probably would have trouble with some of them. In the three recipes on pages 172-173, I found several problems. The first recipe calls for simmering brown rice for 20 minutes. As this seems to be all the cooking this rice really gets, this is clearly not long enough. The directions seem to have been written for white rice. The following recipe calls for fresh jalapeños, but never gives instructions for preparing them. This is a casserole-type dish and the cook is not instructed to remove them, so I would guess they were intended to be seeded and cut up (as opposed to two individuals receiving whole jalapeños in their servings!).

This is an ok cookbook, in that many of the recipes seem to work out fine and be tasty. My problem with it is that it looks like a beginner's cookbook, yet is misleading in areas. For example, right at the start it explains how to make the most basic staple - tortillas. By using cornmeal. That is either a seriously unlucky typo or a sign the writer doesn't cook tortillas themselves. I assume they meant corn flour, trying to make tortillas with corn meal is an exercise in futility.

This really wasn't what I expected. After buying "The Everything Chinese Cookbook", I was really disappointed in "The Everything Mexican Cookbook." I guess I was looking for some real authentic south of the border food and instead it appeared that some white woman was coming up with what she thought was great mexican food. Being a white woman who loves the real deal, this is definitely not it!

Format: Paperback
The Everything Mexican Cookbook ably presents 300 flavorful recipes compiled by Margaret Kaeter from Mexican culinary traditions -- as well as basic facts and know-how about south-of-the-border cooking. A friendly, easy-to-follow guide, offering detailed instructions for preparing dishes such as Cold Avocado Soup, Mexican Stuffed Peppers, White Chili, and Yucatan Tamale Pie, The Everything Mexican Cookbook really lives up to its title and would make a terrific addition to any kitchen cookbook collection!

Some of the recipes in this cookbook are good, but there are much better Mexican cookbooks available. It is what one should expect from a Mexican cookbook written in Wisconsin. With the title 'The Everything Mexican Cookbook' a recipe for menudo should be included.

How could this book be titled "Everything Mexican Cookbook" and not include a recipe for tamales? Also no recipes for Carne Asada, Fish Tacos or Chilaquiles! Also the only illustrations are on the covers, for that matter the pages inside have no color whatsoever. A real disappointment.

This is a great cookbook. The only complaint I have is that it does not have a table of contents or an index making it difficult to find a specific recipe.

This book was exactly what I wanted. It's basic, easy to follow, and the pictures were good.
