Your Favorite Mexican Cookbook and Why

dkennedy | Mar 20, 2011 11:53 AM

I have more cookbooks on my bookshelves than I could possibly ever hope to cook through. Even though I don't have that many Mexican Cookbooks, I would like to more fully use of the ones I have. I need someone to point me in the right direction as to which recipes are the ones not to miss. Can you help? I would love to know which Mexican cookbooks in your collection are your favorites and why? What are your favorite recipes out of these books?

My Books:

The Art of Mexican Cooking by Diana Kennedy (taken a cooking class with her, she is brilliant)
The Cuisines of Mexico by Diana Kennedy
Mexican Kitchen by Rick Bayless (made one recipe so far)
Mesa Mexicana bu Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger (taken two cooking classes with them, they are hysterical and terribly talented)
Isabel's Cantina by Isabel Cruz (never cooked out of this one)
Salsas, Sambals, Chutneys and Chowchows (never cooked out of this one)
