The cookbook is divided into meal type so you have basic categories like breakfast, starters, and snacks but there are also a couple of unique chapters I would not have considered. There is a soup section where the author teaches you how to make tortilla strips to put on top of your soup and a whole chapter dedicated to meatless main dishes. Since I am trying to find some unique vegetarian meals this was a big hit with me. The other chapter that I was really drawn to was the desert chapter. I have never considered using tortilla as a desert ingredient but they sound simple and incredibly tasty!
There is a nice balance of recipes in this cookbook. Some have a traditional Mexican flair to them but others (like the hamburger wraps, yum!) are classic American with a twist. Some have a few more ingredients than others but they are all pretty simple and straightforward. If I could change anything about this cookbook it would be to add pictures. I always prefer cookbooks with pictures so I know what my recipe should look like! Overall, though, I loved this cookbook and will be stocking up on tortillas now that I have been inspired!
Disclaimer: I was provided one copy of this cookbook at no charge to facilitate my review however all opinions are my own.
After reading Jessica's book , it is easy to see how you can replace your loaf of bread with tortillas. She explains how to store them and the different types of tortillas you can purchase.
Let me give you a few examples from her book:
FOR BREAKFAST: egg and sausage roll- up, avocado and leek omelet wrap, and tortilla crusted French toast.
FOR SNACK OR APPETIZER: spinach and cheese empanadas, baked wontons with sweet and sour dipping sauce, and spiked gazpacho dip with seasoned tortillas.
FOR A LUNCH: grilled stacker (like a panini), chili dog wraps, and shrimp po' boy wraps
FOR MAIN COURSE: chicken and bell pepper fajitas, grilled fish tacos, and grilled salmon tostados with avocado sauce.
She also had meatless entrees.
FOR DESSERT: Nutella quesadillas, apple cinnamon tortilla pockets, and Mexican cannoli
So many choices and they all sounded delicious. I am sure your family will enjoy choosing and making recipes from Jessica's book. Maybe you will create your own recipes too.
Most of the recipes are simple and don't require lots of ingredients. What I didn't like, however, was that it doesn't give the calories per serving or any of the micro-nutrient values of the recipes. In today's health conscious world, this is important. And, to be sure, some of the ingredients are not what a lot of diet conscious folks would want.
The book contains recipes for every meal plus dessert. I found it unique and very useful. My only complaint is that it didn't provide the calories and other nutrient values for the recipes.
