Mexican food, Tex-Mex, Southwestern
cuisine--call it what you will, the foods that originated in Mexico have become everyone's favorites. Yet as we dig into nachos and enchiladas, many people worry about the fats and calories that traditional Mexican food contains. Deleites de la Cocina
Mexicana proves that Mexican cooking can be both delicious and healthy. In this bilingual cookbook, Maria Luisa Urdaneta and Daryl F. Kanter provide over 200 recipes for some of the most popular Mexican dishes--guacamole, frijoles, Spanish rice, chiles
rellenos, chile con carne, chalupas, tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, menudo, tamales, and flan--to name only a few. Without sacrificing a bit of flavor, the authors have modified the recipes to increase complex carbohydrates and total dietary fiber, while
decreasing saturated and total fats. These modifications make the recipes suitable for people with diabetes--and all those who want to reduce the fats and calories in their diet. Each recipe also includes a nutritional analysis of calories, fats, sodium,
etc., and American Diabetic Association exchange rates. Because diabetes is a growing problem in the Mexican-American community, Deleites de la Cocina Mexicana is vital for all those who need to manage their diet without giving up the foods they love.
Let it be your one-stop guide to cooking and eating guilt-free Mexican food.
