Description: Diana Kennedy (author of The Cuisines of Mexico) shows the range of her imagination here as she concentrates on one amazingly versatile ingredient: the humble tortilla. Her 80 recipes, taken from old Mexican cookbooks and from her own notebooks, range from savory appetizers and soups to substantial main courses.
Of course there are superb enchiladas, tacos and quesadiilas, along with some surprises rarely seen north of the border—marvelous crunchy improvisations. The dishes are enormously varied, alternately rustic and elegant, always delicious and unusual.
For those who don't have access to the millions of fresh tortillas made every day in the United States, Mrs. Kennedy has developed a technique for using the frozen ones. A great number of the recipes will appeal to vegetarians and budget-conscious families in particular -- but anyone who loves real Mexican food will be overjoyed by this exuberant book.
