The Mexican food that is so popular in the United States today has its roots in the arrival of so many immigrants since the 1940’s.
This inspired a style called “Tex-Mex” food that was associated with the Mexican immigrants that came from Northern Mexico.
Only in the last few years has there been more of an appreciation of the authentic regional Mexican dishes both here and
in many areas of the world. This is because of its unique taste and flavor that is quite different from many other noted cuisines.
The purpose of this book is to help and inspire the cook who may be a fan of Mexican food after having enjoyed it in Mexican
restaurants and now want to prepare it at home, and needs to get started with some easy Mexican dishes. The recipes in this book include those for preparing tacos, enchiladas, various salsas, cooking with chicken, and serving up Mexican desserts
