If you think tacos are greasy, unhealthy food--think again. Tacos are so much more than ground beef and grated cheese in a crispy shell; they include fresh, tasty ingredients that are good for you. Tacos, burritos and quesadillas hail from Mexico and traditional recipes generally involve long-simmered meat or poultry, topped with crispy vegetables, wrapped or sealed in a soft flour or corn tortilla and served with a dollop of spicy salsa. It is street food par excellence and as the trend has grown, so have the options for fillings. This book offers a collection of recipes for taco, quesadilla and burrito fillings, with a good selection of contemporary twists to get you hooked on the taco-making and eating craze. Ideas for Tacos include Chipotle Chicken and Ancho Chile Roasted Butternut. More substantial Burritos include Chorizo, Bean, and Pepper; or Chicken Mole. Quesadillas are perfect for sharing--try a Ham and Egg Breakfast Quesadilla or Shrimp and Avocado.

There is also a chapter on Sides & Salsas as, often, a taco is only as good as the extra bits you add to it. Simple recipes include Guacamole, Pico de Gallo, Tomatillo Salsa, and

Baja Slaw. Tacos, quesadillas and burritos are simplicity itself to prepare, so no specialty skills or equipment are required--they are perfect for a light meal or an anytime snack.
