In addition to the recipes, there are some extras in the book that you'll find useful... Towards the beginning there is a glossary of some of the foods and ingredients that are distinctly Mexican - each of these items has a rather long paragraph of information that gives you some detailed background information on the food product. Some examples of theses items would be cilantro, masa, and mole, among others.
Also, towards the end of the book you might enjoy the section called Tropical Drinks and Coolers. This is a bonus that's not included in many recipe books. In this section you'll find out how to make famous beverages of Mexican Restaurants - drinks like Margaritas and the Tequila Sunrise. Also see how to make numerous types of coolers, liquados, and sangrita.
In addition, there are non-alcoholic favorites to be enjoyed during cooler weather like Mexican hot chocolate and Mexican coffee.
