Taco Tuesday Cookbook
The Taco Tuesday Cookbook by Laura Fuentes is a really fun cookbook to add to your library. I love making tacos and quesadillas but I’ll admit I have exactly 1 way to make each of those, so my taco tuesday meals have been in a bit of a rut. After reading this book though, I am totally inspired to try to mix up my options. The Taco Tuesday Cookbook provides 52 recipes so there are enough taco recipes to have a new one every week for a year. The recipes include options with chicken, beef, pork, and Del Mar (seafood options), and vegetarian options, and breakfast isn’t skipped in this book there are even options to start your day off right!
The taco recipes are wonderful, and we will get back to those in a moment, but I must admit that I was really getting excited about The Essentials section which includes salsas, guacamole, seasonings, additional sauces and even how to make a variety of your own tortillas. I tried out the Pineapple Salsa recipe the day that I received this e-book and that suddenly became my supper because it was so incredibly good. Made up of pineapple, tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, garlic and cilantro it was a quick and easy recipe to make, and a new taste to enjoy. The recipe states that it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, but I’m telling you now, it will be completely eaten long before that.
Discovering that Corn Tortillas use only 3 ingredients, and one ingredient is water…I had to try it. The dough is easy to make. I choose to make the tortillas with a rolling pin – and I am a bit rolling pin challenged, so my tortillas were a bit on the irregular shape side, (note – the photos in this book are awesome, so look at the pictures as you build your own) but since I was the only one eating them, I decided that they had character and tasted great, and I’ll work on perfecting them in the upcoming weeks. And perhaps by the holidays, I’ll hint to Santa that a tortilla press would be really nice.
Now back to the taco recipes. Since I have continued to make the Pineapple Salsa, I had to try a breakfast recipe first, Breakfast Sausage and Pineapple Salsa Taco, Yum! I can also highly recommend the Jamaican Jerk Chicken Tacos, Greek Steak Tacos with Cucumber Salsa, and over a weekend that was hot and humid and no desire to use the stove, I tried out Slow Cooker Chicken Salsa Verde Tacos and loved them! Every recipe has a full color photo, so you can see at a glance how each are built and presented. The recipes are easy to follow and use ingredients that are easy to get, or things you already have in your pantry.
I will be using this book for a long time to come, and taco tuesday will never be boring again. Laura Fuentes has made a great cookbook, and I checked out her website http://www.momables.com/ which is filled with great recipes and ideas that you will want to check out for yourself. I would highly recommend this book, and if you have a friend or family member that loves to make taco tuesday meals this would be a great gift idea for them.
