Review: Taco Tuesday Cookbook by Laura Fuentes


Who doesn’t love a good taco?  I’m sure there are some out there, and that’s cool because it means more tacos for me, right?  But if you are like me and are a taco lover, then this cookbook is for you.

I’ll admit, I was kind of curious how someone could write an entire cookbook on tacos without overlapping or becoming repetitive.  The Taco Tuesday Cookbook did not disappoint!

We start out with the essentials – recipes for seasonings, guacamole, salsa, and other tasty things to top your tacos with.  In addition to that, you get a primer on making your own tortillas from scratch, something I’ve always wanted to try.

The meat of this cookbook, so to speak, are the taco recipes themselves.  I was amazed at the variety of taco recipes I found.  There’s everything from your usual ground beef taco to Korean Beef to breakfast tacos.  The Huevos Rancheros tacos sound especially appealing to me and would make a great Sunday brunch food.  Also, for the vegetarian in your life, there’s an entire section with meatless recipes.  Take it from someone who knows, it can be hard to find a substantial, meatless taco that has more than beans and quacamole in it.  Whatever your preferences, there is sure to be something in this cookbook to tickle your fancy.

To wind things down, the reader is treated to a handful of easy drink recipes to compliment your tacos.  I’ve been eyeing that watermelon agua fresca from the moment I picked up this book.  There’s even a handy, weekly meal plan for the year to get you through all fifty-two taco recipes to liven up your Taco Tuesdays.

The Taco Tuesday Cookbook is an excellent source for your taco recipes.  Chock full of variety and delicious sounding recipes, there’s something for every occasion.  Each recipe is written clearly and don’t generally contain difficult directions or hard-to-find products.  There is nothing I like better in a recipe than simple, tasty, and easy to prepare food.

*thank you to Netgalley, the publisher, and the author for an advance copy of the book in exchange for a fair review.
