I lived in New Mexico for over 4 years, ate the food, and loved every minute of it. And while there I picked up this little gem of a cookbook, that I shouldn't even be telling everyone about, it's that good! If you like mexican cooking, new mexican cooking or even tex mex wannabe cooking, you'll love just about every recipe in here. The recipes are fairly simple, straightforward, and quite delicious. But shhhhhh, don't tell too many or I won't be able to get a replacement for my tattered book!
