Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. In her latest, chef and author Schneider (Baja! Cooking on the Edge) presents a zesty take on tacos, drinks, and appetizers sure to inspire fans of Mexican flavors. Following a brief overview of Mexican cuisine and culture, Schneider dives into a bevy of cocktails, including tequila infused with Serrano chiles, mango and lime; classic limonadas and micheladas; and 10 party-starting margaritas. Cooks can choose among five suggested menus scaled for small or large crowds, each an impressive but easy-to-achieve affair with unexpected dimensions. Simple but impressive appetizers like Toritos-jalapeno peppers stuffed with shrimp and cheese-and Lobster, Chayote and Mango Tostadas are sure to please; the Mexican Hot Dog, meanwhile, is an instant guilty-pleasure classic: wrapped in bacon, fried, and topped with lime mayonnaise, fresh pico de gallo and chipotle-spiked ketchup. Schneider's tacos are equally refreshing: one of her three shrimp tacos includes a sweet and spicy barbecue sauce; traditional shredded beef takes on deep, complex flavors with a braise of chiles and Coca-Cola; and the time-intensive Chipotle Duck Taco with Duck Chicharron, Pineapple Cucumber Salsa and Spicy Crema, yields attention-getting results. Though some dishes may intimidate, Schneider's enthusiastic and approachable text keeps frustration to a minimum. This is a collection that novice cooks can grow with, and is sure to be dog-eared in no time.

Really, no reviews for this?!?! In my opinion it is the prefect cookbook for taco nights. No more ground beef, seasoning packets, and cheddar cheese. There are some real deal tacos in here. It has everything you need in it for a bitchin taco night, the drink recipes, the appetizers, the tacos, the salsas and the sauces all in one convenient package. Because of this book my friends want taco night several nights a week now. My favorite taco is one called the "Carne Asada Taco Vampiro" and um...BEST TACO EVER!, period. There is even a vegetarian taco in there with ideas for other veg fillings too. I dont eat it, but the ladies swear by it. Also, the recipe for making infused tequila or "Tequila Diablito" as is called in the book is pretty damn tasty.

Lastly, as amazingly delicious the food is, it is also easy enough for us gringos to make without much of a challenge. The directions are easy to follow and the glossary is helpful for some of the spanish ingredients you dont know. So yeah, buy this book.

We have really enjoyed this cookbook. This book along with Tacos, Tortas and Tamales was used exclusively in our kitchen this summer. The recipes we made (most dishes continually repeated) were Coca-Cola Shredded Beef Taco, Chicken Fajita Taco Dorado, BLT Chicken Taco, and Lemon Garlic Chicken Taco with tequila along with the suggested sides. Recipes are not hard, afterall we are talking about tacos. Great cookbook!

Ive read this book in an afternoon, it's a cute little book full of easy recipes. I think it has tips and details for the taco lover and would make a lovely sometimes coffee table, sometimes recipe book.
The layout is super nice, has a lot of spanish "dichos" and little stories that u can use in kitchen and in life.
