I'm always looking for new tastes and cuisines in different regions of the country, especially those that involve local culture. We went in search of big Tex-Mex cooking, which San Antonio is known for. I chose Los Barrios from the many Tex-Mex
restaurants in the city because I fell in love with Diana Barrios Treviand#241;o and the entire Barrios family. . . . The dishes they have created contain amazing combinations and flavors that many people don't get to experience. I wanted the rest of the
country to sample what I was tasting. I wanted people to realize that true Tex-Mex cooking isn't just fajitas and burritos. Now, with the Los Barrios Family Cookbook, I am excited to know that people across the country can easily prepare and taste all of
the delicious dishes I experienced on my visit. Whether you like your food hot, medium, or mild-and these recipes have it all-you'll love the food in this book.
-from the Foreword by Emeril Lagasse

Barrios restaurant in San Antonio, Texas-the heart of Tex-Mex cuisine-has been serving up casero, or home-style, cooking that has charmed food critics and earned an impressive following. Founded with a small investment and a lot of spirit, Los Barrios

Included are recipes for Mexican essentials: Homemade Flour Tortillas, Tamales, and Pico de Gallo; Barrios family specialties, such as Mama Viola's Chicken
Rice Soup and Acapulco-Style Ceviche; and the classics-Chiles Rellenos, Chalu-pas, and Enchiladas Verdes. All the recipes contain easy-to-find ingredients, and special cooking tips will help you prepare dishes at home that will be as delicious as those
served in the restaurant. The Los Barrios Family Cookbook is a comprehensive and indispensable resource for food that explodes with flavor. and#161;Buen provecho!
