Description: Mexican food -- by which most of us mean Tex-Mex -- is a favorite from Los Angeles to New York and everywhere in between. And the heart of great Tex-Mex cooking comes from home kitchens along the Rio Grande. In The Enchilada Queen Cookbook, Sylvia Casares gives you the best of the best, including tricks and simple techniques to turn any dish from appetizing to amazing. You'll learn how to make her Holy Trinity spice paste; why you should use certain key shortcuts, such as chicken bouillon, in some dishes; and how to do her tortilla-changing Texas Two-Step marinating technique. And after you've picked your favorites from her fourteen key sauces, you'll make unbelievable food for your family or a crowd, including: 

  • Cheese Enchiladas with Chili Gravy 
  • Shrimp with Salsa Veracruzana 
  • Stewed Chicken Breast with Mole Poblano 
  • Carnitas with Salsa Hidalgo Roja 

The Enchilada Queen is an expert on more than just enchiladas. Here you'll find appetizers, sides, breakfasts, and desserts, such as: 

  • Guacamole and Picamole 
  • La Fondita Tortilla Soup 
  • Huevos Rancheros 
  • Frontera Beef Fajitas 
  • Tamales with a Variety of Fillings 
  • Sopapillas, Polvorones, and Bunuelos 

The Perfect Margarita's here too, and so much more. In The Enchilada Queen Cookbook, you'll get kitchen wisdom from a lifetime of learning recipes from madres and abuelas who make food specific to their border towns. You'll also get a resource for hundreds of family dinners!
