A collection of recipes for fun, accessible taqueria fare--including colorful salsas, tasty snacks, irresistible cocktails, and of course tacos galore--from the wildly popular San Francisco restaurants and acclaimed Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market food stand, Tacolicious.

Tacos may be the most universally loved, happy-making food on earth. After all, who can say no to a juicy, spicy Chile verde taco; a decadently deep-fried Baja-style fish taco; or a gloriously porky Carnitas taco? At Tacolicious, the San Francisco Bay Area’s most popular Mexican restaurant, tacos are a way of life. And now, in this hotly anticipated cookbook, co-owner Sara Deseran shares all of the restaurant’s tortilla-wrapped secrets. Whether you’re seeking quick and easy weeknight meals or inspiration for a fabulous fiesta, Tacolicious has you covered. With recipes for showstopping salsas, crave-worthy snacks, cocktails and mocktails, and, of course, tacos galore, this festive collection is chock-full of real Mexican flavor—with a delicious California twist.

One of my families favorite meals is Tacos, so when I saw this book, I just knew it had to be a part of our family. Sara Deseran introduces you to different taco styles along with different sauces, salsa's and cocktails, both adult and family friendly.

There are just so many new things that we want to try, that we can't wait to try them out. Things such as the Legendary Orange Sauce, which is a blend of roma tomatoes, onion garlic and arbol chiles. Mexican Party Mix which is a mexican take on chex mix. Potato and homemade Chorizo taco, which pretty much explains it. And some yummy margaritas and kid-friendly white nectarine-blueberry aqua fresca.

This cookbook has a little something for everyone. If you don't have your own copy, I suggest running to your local bookstore to pick up a copy. Or you can click on my handy Amazon link below.
