The carne asada taco recipie in this is great. I have also made empanadas and ceviche that turned out wonderfully.

My brother who lives in a very Spanish area of LA swore by this cookbook and used it often when cooking for family dinners. I bought a copy and have enjoyed exploring the many recipes. There are over 200 treasured family recipes along with an interesting backstory - which makes it more than a how-to cook book. It's fun to read as well. Some recipes have strayed from their traditional roots as the current generation adds their own flair. Great cookbook

Another excellent Mexican cookbook. The recipes represent authentic family recipes. This is Mexican comfort food at its best and at its roots. Some of the recipes come from the family who ran a bed and breakfast in Oaxaca and I have a soft spot for them because I know how good they are.
