Book Review: Salsas and Moles

I am totally addicted to hot sauce... I literally put hot sauce on EVERYTHING... including eggs, soups, chili, pasta, pizza, rice, meats! I am obsessed. I couldn't wait to receive the Salsas and Moles by Deborah Schneider in the mail! My mouth literally watered as I flipped through this book! 

I've never really cooked with chilies or made authentic Mexican food from scratch, so this cook feels slightly overwhelming. However, "The Essential Guide to Chiles" section is comprehensive, including the types of fresh chilies and dried chilies (including pictures), and how to work with the chilies (choosing, cleaning, toasting, soaking, pureeing, and frying). This cookbook ranges from really easy recipes to very complex salsas and sauces. I don't think I'll be working with the hotter chilies to create hot sauces, but, I definitely plan to use the recipes for the classic table salsas! Yum!!!

I would definitely recommend this cookbook to anyone who loves cooking Mexican food, or those friends who enjoy making their own hot sauces!!

  1. When you spend a few hours reading a book, you make your very own universe in your brain. You fill this world with distinctive characters and scenes. This builds your creative ability controls and helps you to consider your thoughts all the more outwardly. Contingent on what you read, you will turn out with the same experience as you do when you watch an extraordinary motion picture.
