I love this book. When I first started cooking I kept wondering where the Mexican food books were. I found Diane Kennedy. But, what I was really looking for was Tex-Mex. Just like the Tex-Mex we had at our local eatery, Matt’s Rancho Martinez. We started frequenting Matt’s from the time he opened his place in Lakewood. It’s not quite the same without old Matt around coming by to see how everyone is doing. But, it’s still good and often what I think of when I want Mexican food.
He had a couple of books before this one. This one is undoubtedly the best. The photos are great and the recipes cover all my favorites and more. His chili rellenos are by far the best I’ve ever eaten and the recipe is right here. All his salsas, margaritas, enchilada sauces and more. I really recommend this book. I roll out this one when I want to impress visitors from out of state who never sit down to Mexican food at their table at home. I’ve seen the book at Borders and on Amazon.
If you don’t already have a good Tex-Mex cookbook, this is the only one you’ll need.
