Mexican food makes its way onto our menu at least once a week, but often more. Our favorite staples are beef tacos with cherry tomatoes from the garden and homemade chicken enchiladas. We serve them both with salad and guacamole. In fact, whenever my two year old sees an avocado now, she shouts out, “Guacamole!”
When I was asked to review Tortillas To the Rescue Cookbook, I was interested and a bit skeptical that someone could come up with 100 different recipes using tortillas. However, Jessica Harlan, a graduate of the Institute for Culinary Education in New York City, did just that.
We sampled several recipes in this book. Ironically, the soups were what sold me the most. We enjoyed both the Tortilla Soup and Black Bean Soup with Tortilla Bowls; I am sure both will make their way on the menu again.
There were also some recipes that looked delicious but just aren’t the same without the cheese, like quesadillas, so we skipped them even though in years prior when we could have dairy, I would have made and enjoyed them.
This book has recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It would be great for a college student, someone who loves Mexican food or a family on the go that needs quick meals.
The only drawback of this book for me is that it didn’t contain any pictures. I would have loved to have seen at least a small section with pictures. Still, we loved every recipe we tried, so that helps make up for the lack of pictures.
