"Experience classic and modern Mexican street foods with chef Roberto Santibañez. Mexico's simplest, flavor-packed foods have taken the culinary world by storm. From upscale eateries to the burgeoning roving food truck scenes in Los Angeles, New York, and elsewhere, authentic Mexican tacos--and tortas and tamales as well--are fast becoming some of America's favorite foods on the fly. And why wouldn't they? Versatile, handheld, and uncomplicated, tacos might be the perfect fast and delicious meal. Add the simple Mexican sandwiches called tortas and handmade tamales and you can fully experience the real everyday food of Mexico--easy to make and incredibly tasty. But if an authentic, south-of-the-border taco is out of reach, you can now recreate your own at home. One of the best things about real Mexican home cooking is that it's easier than you think. With simple preparations, delicious ingredients, and basic rules of thumb, you can make your favorites in the comfort of your own kitchen. People from coast to coast are ditching fast food tacos and greasy Tex-Mex for real Mexican food at home--and this is the perfect cookbook for them Roberto Santibañez is the author of two other cookbooks, including Truly Mexican (Wiley), the owner of Fonda restaurant in Brooklyn, the former culinary director of Rosa Mexicano restaurants, the president of Truly Mexican Consulting in New York, and a member of The Culinary Institute of America's Latin Cuisines Advisory Council In addition to tacos, tortas, and tamales, the book also includes recipes for fresh juices, smoothies, margaritas, and traditional Mexican sweets Chef Santibañez's Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales will give you the simple guidance and authentic recipes to bring the true flavors of Mexico into your own kitchen"-- Provided by publisher.

I love this cookbook. Santibanez showcases favorite street food recipes from his hometown of Mexico City but isn't afraid to mix it up with food influences from around the world. Best of all, he understands that not everyone wants to spend all day in the kitchen. Most recipes use just a few, easy to find ingredients but then include suggestions for homemade salsas and other toppings if you're looking to go full gourmet!
