Pantry Friendly Mexican Cooking by LeAnn Bird link for Pantry Friendly Mexican Cooking

About the Book: Even if you don’t think you know how to boil water, you can create mouthwatering, authentic Mexican dishes — in less time than it takes to order out! Pantry-Friendly Mexican Cooking collects nearly 100 delicious recipes, each with its own unique story. And it shows you how to save money by buying exactly the ingredients you need and storing them correctly to easily make dozens of dishes. There are no exotic ingredients to buy, no special stores to visit. Just authentic, delicious and quick meals perfect anytime!

My Review: With a list of basic ingredients to keep in your pantry and the addition of a little meat and some fresh ingredients, you are set to become a pantry friendly cook. There are recipes for making your own flour or corn tortillas or keep some store-bought around.  All of the ingredients are easy to find in the stores.

There are recipes for sauces, salsas, main dishes, sides, soups and desserts. Just a few of the recipes are:

Mango Salsa
Breakfast Burritos
Chicken Enchiladas
Deep Fried Green Chili Burrito
Caramel Corn Puffs
Kickin’ Fruit Platter
Jalapeno Syrup
And much more…

The book is big at 8 ½” by 11” and the print is easy to read. There are pictures on each page of the finished dish. Yum! We will be having Breakfast Burritos in the morning.
