Review: Daily Tortilla

About the book:
Sopes, Tamales, Pozole, Huevos Rancheros, you’ve never had Mexican food like this! Daily Tortilla starts with the basics of tortillas, beans, rice, and salsas, and then builds to an incredibly delicious repertoire of dishes found in any family dining room in Mexico. Say “adios” to Americanized Mexican food this is authentic, south-of-the-border flavor at its finest!

About the author:

He currently owns a consulting firm that provides technology solutions to K-12 schools across the United States and South America. He lives in Springville, Utah with his wife and five kids.

From Reidhead Randomness:

YUMMY.  That is all.

Just kidding!

What a delicious collection of Mexican recipes! There are the "simple" things like Guacamole and Pico de Gallo...and the challenging ones like Tamales de puerco (I haven't been brave enough...or had the time to dedicate to this one).  Everything that I tried was AMAZZZING!  
I LOVE that the recipes have great instructions and pictures to help you be successful!  Another wonderful feature is that it takes the time to explain the logistics of  different things.....Salsa for example...Bulk, Heat, Spice (are the components of salsa)....And how you can make hundreds of combinations of salsas!

The Daily Tortilla covers all the bases!  It includes the basics (salsa, guacamole, etc), the main dishes, first courses, desserts and drinks!

On the back cover it states it very well with; "Say Adios to Americanized Mexican food!"

I received a copy to write this review, however all opionions expressed are my own.
