A collection of 60 authentic salsa and mole recipes from acclaimed chef/restaurateur Deborah Schneider, adapted for US kitchens. 

America has a new favorite condiment: salsa
And with good reason—a great salsa makes a big impression with just a little bite. In Salsas and Moles, award-winning chef Deborah Schneider explores a wide variety of favorites, from classic table salsas to mole and enchilada sauces, plus chunky salsas and snacks. While some people think salsa is all about heat, Schneider teases out fresh flavors from chiles, fruits, and herbs, creating authentic recipes that showcase the unique flavors of Mexico.

With serving suggestions for each salsa, and recipes for popular sauces such as Salsa Verde, Enchilada Sauce, and Mango-Habanero Salsa, any salsa lover will be able to find their perfect match.

Salsas & Moles is a fresh take on your everyday salsas, guacamole's and mole's. From the simplest to more advanced sauces, you are sure to find something you like.

In our house, we love trying new things, and I am always wanting to make guacamole and salsa, but never thought that I would have the time. It always seems so time consuming. But in this book, she shows you that it's really not that difficult. And, there is fresh takes on salsas, such as Mango-Habanero, Pineapple-Cucumber, Green Apple & Jicama and Avocado & Cherry Tomato Salsa.

The only thing that I found that I didn't care for was the fact that a lot of the peppers used in these I would have to buy at specialty store or grow in my own backyard, since the stores in my area don't carry a majority of these. But other than that, I can't wait to try some of these wonderful sauces.
