The Mexican Slow Cooker

The Mexican Slow Cooker *****
by Deborah Schneider

I  love Mexican food so I was really excited to try out some of the recipes in this cookbook. We tried our first three recipes tonight for dinner. I made the Pollo en Creme con Chipotle (chicken dish), Arroz Mexicana (rice dish), and Dulce de Leche (caramel).
This isn't a 'dump the ingredients in the crock pot and go to work cookbook.' I spent the day prepping items, putting them in the crock pot to cook a few hours, adding other things, blending sauces, etc. It was a lot of work but fun to make something new. I loved how the author explained why you have to do certain things and which extra steps are most important to do. I learned how to roast a pepper and then peel it, and I cooked with two new peppers I've never used before.
I would recommend this to a cook who loves trying new things and has plenty of time to cook.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
