I love this cookbook -- it is beautiful and realistic. Tamales, enchiladas, sopa pias and even chips are transformed tastily. This food is simply low fat, there is no skimping on salt or seasonings. The recipes are also flexible == you can add or detract naughty items like cheese and lard. The soups are SPLENDID, and the book is worth buying for the chicken and lime soup recipe.
My only negative comment would be that some of the ingredients are hard to come by, particularly the mexican cheeses and latin style chocolate. And I live in New Mexico!
