Looking for easy taco recipes to make at home? Taco Nation is where you want to be! Recipes are authentic and easy to understand so you will be successful!
Taco Nation is for Beginner Cooks!
Taco Nation started out as a beginner cookbook that I wrote for my kids, nieces & nephews. Most cookbooks just didn’t address what the college crowd was looking for, which I think is easy & fun meals.
Making tacos at home is a great way to learn how to cook. The ingredients are simple, the recipes are quick, & everybody likes tacos! If you work your way through each recipe, you will dominate your kitchen in no time. I have organized the recipes by ingredients as well as skill levels, which is noted on each recipe.
1 – Chopping & microwave
2 – Chopping & a few minutes of stove cooking
3 – Chopping & boiling, sautéing or stewing on the stove
4 – Chopping & boiling, stewing or deep frying
5 – Advanced technical skills & long cooking time
Taco Nation is about Kitchen Confidence!
I want Taco Nation to empower the reader – so that inexperienced cooks could build their confidence in the kitchen. Knowing you can produce a meal is a good feeling!
The artwork for Taco Nation was created by the legendary Robert Tatum, a good friend with a funky soul who “gets” me. I love the logo he created. Thanks for reading this little book. I hope you find it useful & fun!
Bringing people together at the table is the first step in building a better world. Use your energy to do something good every day. Invite people over for dinner & talk. Small acts of kindness can have lasting effects. Build your own Taco Nation!
