Back when Mexican food was “foreign” and “exotic” and burritos were weird, cookbooks like this were everywhere. Marvel at how putting salsa on eggs is STTRRAAAANNGGGEE and different. Cringe at the racial stereotypes. Scratch your head at the geographic impossibility of including the Spanish omelet in this collection. Wonder at the merging of cuisines by making Mexican pizza! Pat yourself on the back for making authentic enchiladas just by opening a can!
I especially love that the cover girl looks like Loretta Lynn ;)
Sections include Salads-Dips-Sauces, Vegetables, Meats & Poultry, Egg Dishes, Main Dishes, Bread, Desserts, and an all-important “Summary of Mexican Cookin'” Hasta Luego!
To give them credit recipes for Menudo, Arroz Con Pollo, and Tamales are included. Want to learn Mexican cooking but not so sure about those hot peppers? Or true authenticity? Ever wondered what the recipe for Hot Dog Enchilada Casserole is? Then Favorite Mexican Cookin’ is for you.
