Product Description

Discover the flavors of Mexican street food in your own kitchen

Americans are having a love affair with the taco. What began as affection for the fast-food version—that hard yellow shell filled with ground beef and mysterious yellow cheese—has blossomed into an all-out obsession for the real thing, with upscale renditions and taco trucks popping up from coast to coast.

Now, with Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales, chef Roberto Santibañez shows you how to recreate the thrilling, authentic flavors of the taquerias of Mexico in your own home. In addition to tacos, the book also explores the equally exciting Mexican sandwiches called tortas and hearty tamales, as well as salsas, condiments, fresh juices, and even desserts and refreshing margaritas.

  • Author Roberto Santibañez is also the author of Rosa''s New Mexican Table and Truly Mexican, as well as the chef and owner of Fonda restaurants in Brooklyn and Manhattan
  • Santibañez''s Truly Mexican was chosen as a New York Times Notable Cookbook of 2011
  • Using easy-to-find ingredients and simple techniques, this is the perfect introduction to real Mexican cooking for enthusiastic beginners and experienced cooks alike

While the flavors you''ll find here are exciting and complex, the cooking itself is anything but complicated. With Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales on your kitchen shelf, dinner will never be dull again.

From the Inside Flap

Americans are having a love affair with the taco. What began as an affection for the fast-food version, that hard yellow shell filled with ground beef and mysterious yellow cheese, has blossomed into an all-out obsession for the real thing, with upscale taquerías and food trucks popping up from coast to coast.

Yet even today, few people are familiar with the incredible variety available on the streets of Mexico, from fish tacos of Baja to slow-cooked pork tacos of the Yucatán to cream-spiked strips of poblano peppers tucked into tortillas from the markets of Mexico City. In Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales, chef Roberto Santibañez shows you how to recreate these thrilling flavors in your home kitchen.

And real tacos aren''t the only revelation in store. Santibañez also explores the equally exciting Mexican sandwiches called tortas and hearty tamales, which are so much easier to make than you might think. There are plenty of salsas and condiments to enliven every bite. He also shares recipes for fresh juices called aguas, alcoholic treats like margaritas, and a handful of everyday desserts.

While the flavors are exciting and complex, the cooking itself is anything but complicated. All you''ll need are fresh ingredients and a few basic rules of thumb.

Whether you decide to make each component from scratch or cut a few corners, this is the only cookbook you need to prepare fantastically simple and amazingly tasty Mexican food at home. With Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales in your kitchen, your dinners will never be dull again.

From the Back Cover

"I''ve been lucky enough to witness many taco revelations, the moments when visitors to Mexico bite into one that changes their lives. Perhaps it''s the warm soft tortilla that does it. Maybe it''s the little mounds of tender steak or the streak of vibrant salsa. If I''ve picked the place, you can bet it''s all three. What was once just a pleasant snack becomes a treat that you plan entire days around, one that you pine for as you lie in bed at night."
—from Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales

Praise for Roberto Santibañez''s Truly Mexican, a New York Times Notable Cookbook of 2011:

"With the goal ''to convert as many readers as I could from people who would love to cook Mexican food to people who cook Mexican food they love,'' the author lays a solid foundation with a chapter on ingredients, technique, and equipment. . . . The author''s expertise is conveyed in a straightforward and inspiring tone that will instill confidence in cooks eager to prepare Mexican meals at home, regardless of previous experience or skill level."
—Publishers Weekly

"The book underscores the breadth of Mexican cuisine while diving into its most accessible aspect. . . . The recipes work; the flavors are eye-opening; Santibañez''s modern twists are appealing; and he writes with verve, precision, and authority."
Cooking Light magazine

I''m SO satisfied and happy with my book. First off, I''m a visual person. I like pictures to go with recipes. I''d say about 85% of these recipes have pictures to go with them, so that was a delight for me. I''ve already made the flour tortillas. Easy! Delicious!! I have also made pork carnitas to go with our homemade tortillas. They were just wonderful. The contents of this book is Tacos, Tortas, Tamales, Salsas and Condiments, Drinks and Desserts. I''m most excited about the Tamales recipes. This author is very thorough with his directions and instructions, I''ve noticed. Would recommend this book to anyone wanting to try some south-of-the-border recipes :)

I have to add that thanks to this book, I feel much more confident in my tortilla-making abilities. I don''t have a tortilla press or anything (but the recipe helped me through that) but after making tortilla''s by the book twice, I decided I wanted to make a tortilla that was about 70% flour and 30% masa harina. I made them and they were SO heavenly. But I can''t tell you how this cookbook has helped me gain more confidence to DO that. Anyway, just wanted to add that. Again, extremely satisfied with this hard-back book.

I wanted to 1. make homemade tortillas and 2. make killer tacos. Not only does this book have these recipes they also have a ton of staples I usually order at my favorite taco shops. The first night I made the refried beans, pico de gallo with lemon, and corn tortillas from the book''s recipes. (I added some left over pork roast to complete the tacos.) The first two recipes exceeded expectations. The homemade tortillas - once I got the hang of my tortilla press (there were a few casualties), came out good and will only get better with more experience (balance/feel of water vs. corn flour in dough). They were way better than the store bought. I just made a pitcher of pineapple agua fresca from recipe in book. Drinking it now as I type. Delicious. The write ups on Mexican food and pictures are a nice addition.

A few years ago, for the birthday of a good friend, I made a number of the recipes in this book, and only this book, for a backyard party of about 30 adults and a horde of hungry children. It took serious logistics, etc., to get the dishes to the table. I was in the kitchen much of the evening. But thats nothing unusual. What was unusual, downright awesome in fact, was that throughout the evening I gotta say we celebrated the food as much as the guest of honor who, at the end of the evening, offered a toast to both me and the authors of this book. Everyone wondered where I got the recipes. I was more than happy to share. We had a great time. Thanks to this book my friends and I have will have great memories for many years to come. I only wish they included a recipe for their favorite escabeche.

Some of the recipes were just unappealing (tongue tacos), but many required a lot of ingredients I’d never be able to find living in a rural area.
