Both recipes turned out great (must confess that I bought pre-roasted chiles, a definite time saver). The instructions for both were excellent, including illustrations in the stuffed chiles recipe. The flavor of both was was as good as what I've had in good restaurants, and I will be making them again. I've read a few of the other recipes and they also are intriguing. I'm looking forward to trying more of the recipes. For those who do not live in an area where the necessary ingredients are readily available, the author provides a list of mail order sources. She also covers ingredients and utensils, along with basic techniques in the front of the book. The book is upbeat in nature, and very thorough. The recipes are not complicated. I would definitely recommend this to those who are looking for a good Mexican cookbook.
the recipes. We have found the "Green rice" and the "Chicken and Spices" particularly good.
My only regret is this is the only book by Mrs. Gabilondo.
I had her look it over as she is a true Mexican American taught by her Mom and family, using recipes learned by taste. It was cute, she found some discrepancies in how she makes some of the things but said it was a good cookbook for a great gringo cook like me.
