Everyone loves tacos, so Laura Fuentes’ cookbook, The Taco Tuesday Cookbook: 52 Tasty Taco Recipes to Make Every Week the Best Ever is a dream come true for busy cooks who want to put good things on the table quickly. This excellent cookbook seems to have everything. It has sauces for dozens of international-food type tacos, as well as traditional sauces for tacos with a Mexican flair. It also covers homemade tortillas, fillings of every kind, and ideas for serving.
The breakfast taco chapter is amazing; it has tacos such as Black Bean and Queso Breakfast Tacos, Breakfast of Champion Tacos (eggs, sausage, & Maple Syrup wrapped up in pancakes instead of tortillas), and Steak and Egg Tacos (fabulous!), to name a few. Most of these breakfast tacos are in my queue for trying as soon as possible. There is a chapter with vegetarian tacos that will appeal to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike (Blackened Zucchini Tacos – Yum!), and an entire chapter on innovative and delicious chicken tacos such as Jamaican Jerk Chicken Tacos, Buffalo Chicken Tacos, and Chicken Enchilada Tacos. The Beef chapter includes traditional ground beef tacos, as well as Carne Asada Tacos ,Greek Steak Tacos with Cucumber Salsa, and Korean Beef Tacos to name a few. There is also a chapter on Pork Tacos, and another covering del mar (seafood) tacos. Fuentes even includes a chapter with refreshing beverages to go nicely with the dozens of tacos in the book. Fuentes has borrowed flavors from everywhere in the world and crafted tacos that are scrumptious.
Photographs are essential for a good cookbook, and this one has excellent photos of every recipe. It makes it very difficult to decide what to make next. The recipes are written in such a way that anyone – beginners to advanced cooks – can easily follow them. And the ingredients are mostly those that are easy to find in grocery stores across the country.
Since tacos are appealing to everyone, this is a cookbook that everyone should include in their personal collection. Fuentes offers something for everyone here – from the pickiest to those who love everything. Quite honestly, there isn’t a taco recipe in this cookbook that isn’t appealing. Fuentes has outdone herself with her innovative ideas, and those lucky enough to own this book will be happily making tacos for years to come. Highly recommended.
