The Mexican Slow Cooker
A collection of 55 fix it and forget it recipes for Mexican favorites from an award-winning Mexican cooking authority, in a stylish, engaging package.
When acclaimed chef and cookbook author Deborah Schneider discovered that using her trusty slow cooker to make authentic Mexican recipes actually enhanced their flavor while dramatically reducing active cooking time, it was a revelation. Packed with Schneider’s favorite south-of-the-border recipes such as Tortilla Soup, Zesty Shredded Beef (Barbacoa), famed Mole Negro, the best tamales she has ever made, and more, The Mexican Slow Cooker delivers sophisticated meals and complex flavors, all with the ease and convenience that have made slow cookers enormously popular.
My thoughts: I love using my slow cooker, but I often have a hard time branching out and trying new recipes in it, since I have had a few that have over cooked or just didn't turn out like expected. So, I was thrilled to get this cookbook and try out some very different recipes from my norm! These recipes are easy to follow, often accompanied with a picture. I like that the recipes taste good without using a bunch of off the wall ingredients that you will just use once (a pet peeve of this thrifty cook. lol). If you are looking to make some fun, different dishes then I highly recommend this book!
I received this cookbook from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
