This is one of my favorite cookbooks, and the one that turned me on to Southwestern cuisines. I've had my copy since 1997 and everything that I've cooked out of it has been great. The instructions are simple and there is very little jargon. The indicia has additional information and variations on the recipes.

I mentioned in another review that I appreciate cookbooks without pictures sometimes. I like simple drawings that show the dish or its ingredients, and allow your imagination to kick in.

I read through the whole book (yes, I read cookbooks for fun). I feel like I'm a pretty good judge of cookbooks by just reading through them, but I'll definitely update my rating and review after I cook a few of the recipes.

This book was informative, fun to read, and the recipes look delicious! I'm excited to try some out. My favorite part of this cookbook was learning about all the regional variation on each "type" of recipe.

I love this cookbook and would like to spend more time cooking out of it--the couple who author it are some of my favorites for regional American cooking, and the recipes are reliable

This cookbook has the best enchilada sauce ever! It is so good I have a hard time not eating it by the spoonful. Oh yeah ~ And the recipe for those super yummy, super thin Tucsonan tortillas.
