Read full description of the books:
Just started reading this. So far, it appears to be a gringo-ized version of Mexican cooking. Translated, this means "WHERE THE F--- ARE THE SPICES?".
So I finished it. What Cordell calls border food is also known as Tex-Mex and, in my part of the border (Arizona and California), simply Southwestern. The Cordells appear to be talking about the border food surrounding the area of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. I can attest that the Mexican-American cuisine in that area is nothing short of fantastic. Yet this particular cookbook appears a bit watered down. I suspect this book was edited for more northern tastes. A cook familiar with this type of cooking need only to look at the salsa and enchilada recipes, and especially that bland Carne Asada recipe, to know something is missing. Yet there still seems to be some worthwhile recipes in here. I'm eager to try the Margarita French Toast and the Cilantro-Lime Shrimp which is a fusion of Mexican and Asian cuisines. Some of the grilling recipes look really good. There are also some cute articles about border culture including articles about the music and, of all things, the Chupacabra. No recipe for slow-roasted Chupacabra though.
Overall, entertaining cookbook to read cover to cover but the recipes are only for novices who haven't stared a Viejo Ropa in the face and lived to tell about it.
