Mouth-watering Mexican recipes, adapted for the American kitchen! I can sense there might be some debate in store about America’s Test Kitchen’s new cookbook, “The Best Mexican Recipes.” There are people who pride themselves on their familiarity with authentic ethnic cuisine. Out of their passion for the real thing, they can at times become choosy about anything that isn’t 100% genuine. When you consider this cookbook, I think it is for the best if you realize that it is written by America’s Test Kitchen, recipe developers whose mission it is to produce consistently delicious recipes that can be replicated by the American (or should I specify estadounidense) home cook. Here is a quote from the Introduction to this cookbook: “So with this book, we set out to tell the story of Mexican cooking in the United States through a collection of foolproof recipes that range from little-known authentic dishes and Tex-Mex favorites to fresh, modern dishes inspired by the flavors of Mexico…We think this book presents the very best of…

A Worthwhile Contemporary Cookbook This book is a bit unusual as it’s about contemporary Mexican-style cuisine. What most people don’t understand is that authentic means utilizing a cooking style along with ingredients relative to a culture; it doesn’t promise traditional methods of food preparation, use of ingredients, and cooking. The book does cover some traditional Mexican recipes, while some have been modified to make it easier for modern cooks to achieve similar results. The book doesn’t shy away at the fact it also focuses on Tex-Mex recipes, modern methods of cooking, and different applications of making the dish that has been proven effective in the test kitchen. A particular worthy note is the book’s effort to describe the cooking methods and showing pictures of the ingredients you’ll need to procure and substitute when you can’t. Even the best traditional Mexican cookbooks lack in well-defined explanations of the ingredients we need; this book gives a simple and concise review to minimize any confusion…

No, I’m not a shill for America’s Test Kitchens This is my favorite Mexican style cookbook. What I love best about America’s Test Kitchen cookbooks is that all the recipes are tested and most, if not all, can be made at home. Exotic ingredients usually have a substitution. Some of the chiles are hard to find locally but I’ve successfully used others. The directions are clear and there are lots of pictures to help you with new techniques.If you like your food spicy then you’ll like these recipes. For myself and my family I cut back on the hotter chiles and it tastes better to us. Some of my favorite recipes are:Chunky Guacamole – I leave out the jalpeño (too spicy) and the raw onion (husband can’t eat raw onions)Corn Tortillas – Never knew how easy they are to make at home. Using a ziplock bag with the sides cut out is genius. Plus homemade tortillas are very tasty.Easy Chipotle Chicken Tacos – If you already have corn tortillas, you can have this on the table in 30 minutes or less.Fish…
