While the books name may be Tacolicious (a food I love and don’t eat quite as often as I would like!) this book contains festive recipes for not only tacos but also snacks, cocktails and more! So don’t let the name fool you, you will find a lot of great recipes in this book that aren’t only tacos. The book is actually named after a restaurant – at which you will also find more than just tacos.
Chapters include: Salsa, Pickles + More, Snacks + Sides, Tacos, Tacos, Tacos, Cocktails, Aguas Frescas + More. Of course my favorite chapter was Tacos, Tacos, Tacos, but there are also some other recipes in the book that I’d love to give a try as well.
The book also has a lot of really great photos – you might want to make sure that you’re not hungry when you read it because you may end up wanting to eat the pages or lick the screen of your e-reader. (Heck even if you’re NOT hungry you may end up wanting to do that – everything looks SO good!)
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review – I was not otherwise compensated.
