1,000 Mexican Recipes A celebration of Mexican cuisine—traditional and new—written for today's cook. Mexican foods excite and captivate the senses. Simple dishes like chile butter on fresh, juicy corn offer immediate gratification; dishes like burritos or poultry with mole sauces tantalize with layers of flavor. And the more you taste the more you want to try! So here's the perfect book to help you savor the tremendous variety of dishes throughout Mexico—from Baja on the Pacific Ocean to Mexico City in the heart of the country to Yucatán at the tip of the Gulf of Mexico. The recipes represent a delicious taste tour of dishes found in home kitchens, at market food stalls (fondas), and in restaurants—from local taquerias to sophisticated hotspots featuring acclaimed chefs. There are dishes for every meal and for snacks in between, for a busy weekday or for special occasions. You'll find traditional dishes common throughout Mexico, special regional fare, and modern dishes inspired by Mexican chefs that weave together native and new ingredients and techniques (nueva cocina). There are also recipes that are perfect for when you want great Mexican food, but are short on time or ingredients. Here is just a sampling of what you'll find: North-of-the-Border Favorites: Classic Guacamole; Fresh Salsa Mexicana; Chicken Quesadillas; Huevos Rancheros; Mexican Coffee Flan; Mexican Wedding Cookies Classic Mexican Dishes (with Several Variations): tamales; enchiladas; pozole; empanadas; chiles rellenos Regional Specialties: Shrimp, Puerta Vallarta Style; Red Snapper Veracruzana; Chicken in Mole Sauce from Puebla; Oven-Roasted Lamb, Monterrey Style; Oaxacan Bread Nueva Cocina (New-Style Cooking): Cornish Hens with Fiery Cilantro-Mint Sauce; Rolled Chicken Breasts with Poblano Chiles and Goat Cheese; Sautéed Salmon with Creamy Corn Sauce and Toasted Pumpkin Seeds; Potato and Chile Gratin; Watermelon Ice Cream Soon-to-be Favorites: Fried Potato Chips with Lime and Chili; Chicken with Chipotle Chiles and Tequila; Tijuana Pork Burritos; Shrimp in Garlic Sauce; Custard Bread Pudding; Mexican Chocolate Cake Modern Adaptations: Quick Refried Black Beans; Easy Mole from Prepared Paste; Chili Powder Enchilada Sauce; Black Bean Omelet With 1,000 Mexican Recipes, simply by learning about Mexican ingredients or techniques, you can add a kick to your everyday cooking.
