This book offers inviting choices for every cooking preference, from quick-and-easy miracle concoctions, to exotically flavored dishes, to made-from-scratch traditionals. Appetizers, breads, soups, vegetables, main dishes (including vegetarian offerings), salads, accompaniments, and desserts are all represented. A glossary, a list of speciality food sources, and instructions for preparing fresh green chiles to freeze or use in any recipe complete the reader's initiation into thetantalizing mysteries of New Mexican cuisine.
